Pre-Order - 10 week lead time

The Material Conveyance Unit is designed to move plastic pellets from a bulk storage unit directly to a lightweight material reservoir mounted on the feed throat of an extruder. The system utilizes a capacitive sensor to monitor the required feed rate of the extruder and deliver pellets on demand, ensuring an automated feed for your prints no matter how long the run-time. Every MCU comes with bases for both the MDPH2 and the MDPE10, which allow full rotation for the hose and sensor attachment points to swivel as the printer moves. Simply mount the material reservoir, connect the vacuum and air lines, then plug it into the wall and you are ready to go!
