Epsilon Printer with Smart Cabinet (back)

    Key Features

    Performance

    The humidity-controlled environment has been designed to extend the service life of your materials, protecting the filament and reducing print failure due to moisture, significantly improving your prints’ quality. 

    Designed to extend the service life of your materials, the silica gel open to the dehumidifying environment absorbs the moisture from the air in the chamber. Once it becomes saturated, the gel is isolated from the materials and gets heated up until it releases the moisture, purging it out of the system. This process effectively keeps the filament dry and in optimal condition for its use.

    Protection

    Protect your equipment and your work against power outages thanks to the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), providing 2 minutes of additional print time before a blackout, time enough for the 3D printer to return automatically to the home position.

    Integration

    Full 3D printing solution. The Smart Cabinet integrates with your 3D printers, materials, and software, streamlining your workflow thanks to its fast and easy loading of up to eight filament spools and its wheeled structure, which enables effortless transportation across your facilities.

    The tool drawer provides you with every utensil you might need, and thanks to the extra space for your laptop or tablet you count on a full working station right by your 3D printer.

    Fit them all

    The dehumidifier can fit up to 8 small spools (between 750g - 1kg) or 4 big spools (up to 2,5kg). The tool drawer provides you with every utensil you might need, and thanks to the extra storage space your workspace will stay tidy and clean at all times.

    Maintain your workspace organized and clean at all times thanks to the ample storage space for materials and tools - and thanks to the Smart Cabinet’s transportable structure, your printer can be easily moved across your facilities.

    Application
    Case Study 1: Effect of environmental humidity on printability of hygroscopic filaments

    Print quality was tested with our most hygroscopic filaments, after recreating an environment with constant humidity and storing each spool for 4 days. PVA ensured good print results for a wide range of conditions, while PA and especially TPU required a much more restrictive storage protocol.

    Case Study 2: Highly hygroscopic filaments: humidity limit of printability

    The humidity limit of printability was obtained after storing the filaments for 4 days at 25 ºC and specific relative humidity (RH). We observed that PVA could be printed successfully when stored at up to 40% RH. PA started to show superficial imperfection when stored at a 30% RH. TPU proved much sensitive to moisture and did not give satisfactory results when stored above 12% RH.

    Case Study 3: Highly hygroscopic filaments: Shelf life

    The three hygroscopic filaments under test underwent a kinetic absorption evaluation. When stored at typical humidity conditions (60% RH), each filament required a different amount of time to reach its printability limit. We calculated that PVA could be kept on an unprotected shelf for up to 12 hours before requiring a drying cycle. PA shelf life was estimated at 4 hours, which makes it unsuitable to very long prints. According to our calculation, TPU should be handled carefully, as its extrusion performances started decaying after only 1.5 hours.
