3D Platform (3DP), Rockford, IL, a manufacturer of large-format, industrial-strength 3D machines, has produced a high-flow air-cooled (HFA) filament extruder that features a gear-reduction transmission to prevent filament stripping and slipping, and print-layer resolution to 50 microns. The extruder comes with the company’s 3DP 300 Series WorkbenchPro printer, and as an available upgrade option with the 100 Series WorkTable and 200 Series WorkbenchClassic.

“Our new line of quick-swap dual extruder heads deliver high-quality 3D prints and are independently controlled for speed and extruded material amounts,” says company president Jonathan Schroeder. “The heads can accommodate filament sizes from 1.75 to 3 mm and nozzle sizes from 0.2 to 2.5 mm.”
