Allevi releases a new high-temperature print head printing at 255˚

Allevi released a new high-temperature print head capable of melting thermoplastics at temperatures up to 255˚ celsius. This high temperature will be particularly useful in bio-printing applications: rapid prototyping, bone modelling, joint and dental implants, and biomedical device creation are all in this new print head’s wheelhouse.

The print head extends Allevi’s role as a specialized bio-printing company, with three bio-printers and a host of bio-inks to its name. The new print head expands the range of thermoplastics that can be paired with Allevi’s bio-inks. The plastics that are now in view include PLA, PLGA, Polystyrene, ABS, PEEK, PCL and custom composites.

The printer head works with Allevi’s easy design: it is compatible with the Allevi 1 and Allevi 3 models; and it attaches to the magnetic print head carriage without the need for any additional hardware.

The print head weighs 300 grams, measures 1.5″x2.5″x3″, and it comes with high-temperature-resistant gloves and a twist cap with tubing. It is virtually ready for use out of the package.

The company is likely to use this print head in its many bio-printing partnerships, which focus on developing bio-inks in cooperation with medical research and development companies.
