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!

    Customer Testimonials


    There is a very distinctive design language and quality of construction across all Massive Dimension parts. This combined with the fact that all these components are compatible with each other is a big selling point.

    “We purchased an MDPH02 to convert an already existing industrial filament machine. They came to install it and did a wonderful job. Like most projects of the sort there were some unexpected issues but they made quick work of them and left us with a functioning pellet extruder on a previously filament based machine. Their product is well designed, well made and looks great on our machine!"
