MDPE50 - Additive Manufacturing Extruder
Available in November 2022
The new MDPE50 is our largest, highest output extruder. This system outputs a max mass flow rate of over 50lbs per hour. This design is optimized for robotic printing by utilizing as few parts as possible in an effort to reduce the weight as much as possible while still delivering a robust extruder that will meet the demands of our users. To that end, this system comes standard with a nitrated barrel and screw, this increases the longevity of operation for production and long-duration printing. The screw is removed for easy cleaning of the flights and the barrel. This system also has a built in feedstock agitator that ensures continous feeding of material, plus a built in MDMCU feeding system.
The MDPE50 comes standard with a process cabinet and HMI touch screen where the extruder settings can be monitored, changed, and logged for future reference. The controller also communicates with your robot controller to start, stop, or pause the printing process.
