New extruder design pushes clay like never before

June 2014

 

Six-times is the charm! This is our 6th prototype of the all-electric clay extruder for the Mini Metal Maker, and it is slated to become the final version for our production model. Design features stainless plunger, orbital gearbox, self-aligning linkage, & high pressure syringe with twice the clay. Hooked up to a pressure gage, we found that the system is capable of delivering over 300 psi (>2Mpa).  This means smoother flow through smaller extrusion nozzles, and faster start-stop flow control. You're going to love using this to print jewelry, custom hardware, and much more! -David
