Carbon fiber filament has low density, high strength, and it is resistant to corrosion, static electricity and high temperature.It has potential for a wide range of applications within industries that need considerable strength-to-weight ratio in their solutions, such as the aviation industry and the automotive field. The E2CF is durable, user-friendly and stable while in operation and prints accurately.
Nozzles with High Durability
The new silicon carbide nozzles have excellent wear resistance and thermal conductivity, which will effectively lessen the abrasion the carbon fiber composite filament subjects the nozzle to when printing, making the nozzle more durable.
Dual Direct Drive Extrusion System
The gears are made of high-hardness steel and have been heat-treated for better wear resistance.
With a custom gear tooth profile, filament is firmly held in place to ensure that it does not slip when extruding. The force of the system is enhanced to ensure the stability of printing.
Compatible with a Variety of Carbon Fiber Composite Filaments
The E2CF is compatible with the Raise3D Industrial PA12 CF Filament and the high-performance carbon fiber filaments certified by the Raise3D Open Filament Program (OFP), such as PA CF/PET CF/PPS CF (printing Temp. between 280-300 °C) from BASF and LEHVOSS.
The Raise3D Industrial PA12 CF Filament is reinforced with short carbon fibers, and exhibits excellent rigidity and strength, heat resistance, low warpage, and low water absorption. Meanwhile, this material has an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio, and will obtain enhanced mechanical property and dimensional stability after annealing, which makes it suitable to replace metal in the manufacturing of certain lightweight components.
Raise3D Industrial PA12 CF Support Filament
Raise3D Industrial PA12 CF Support Filament is a break-away support material specially developed for carbon fiber-reinforced composite filaments. During the 3D printing process, it creates a stable support structure, providing proper adhesion to printed surfaces and counteracting any tendency to warp. As such, it significantly improves the surface quality of the overhangs and hollows of the printed items. After a print is finished, the support structure can be easily removed or broken away from the printed parts. This support material exhibits a broad compatibility with many Raise3D OFP (Open Filament Program) certified high-performance carbon fiber-reinforced composite filaments, and is more cost-effective when compared with water-soluble support material
Sealed Dry Box
The built-in suspension trays are used to place the filament and allow material to be pulled more smoothly. When closed, they can effectively prevent dust and moisture from affecting the material, for a period of up to 30 days.
The E2CF is an IDEX 3D printer. IDEX stands for independent dual extruders meaning the extruders can operate independently of one another along the same axis during printing to perform more advanced functions.
With IDEX, one extruder can remain motionless and off to the side while the second extruder prints the model, minimizing the risk of the nozzle on the motionless extruder interfering with the print job during dual or single extrusion printing.
Mirror Mode and Duplication Mode
IDEX can perform two specialized functions, Mirror Mode and Duplication Mode.
Mirror Mode prints a model and an inverse of that same model at the same time. It is convenient because it saves the effort of creating an additional design file for the inverse model, and it saves the extra time usually spent printing the inverse model separately.
Duplication Mode is synchronized printing, meaning it uses both extruders to print a model and an exact copy of that model at the same time. It can double production capability within the same timeframe.
