As the first launch of an entirely new product line, Latvian 3D printer manufacturer Mass Portal is introducing a professional grade filament dryers for its desktop 3D printers.
The filament dryers ensure that better printing results can be achieved, as surface and internally bound moisture is removed from the filament during drying. Printing with properly dried material improves process stability, printing performance, mechanical and visual properties of the printed part.
Mass Portal filament dryers can be used for offline drying with any open material 3D printer, and can also be used to dry proprietary material on spools of compatible dimensions. This means that they are compatible with industry standard spools of the most widely used capacities. All popular filament diameters can be used — 1.75mm, 2.85mm and 3mm.
Drying and feeding your filament at proper conditions minimizes the effects of excessive filament moisture level. The Mass Portal Filament Dryers use a two step process to condition filament for optimal printing process — first by drying the filament and then by feeding the filament at stable process temperature. This drying process, widely used in industrial drying systems, has been optimized for the filament drying application.
Feeding filament at a known, stable state and temperature — without influence from room temperature and moisture — is key to printing process stability, predictability and repeatability. You don’t need to remove the filament from the dryer to print: Mass Portal Filament Dryers can feed filament directly to most printers, keeping out any dust contact with room environment.
