Filament loading on INDUSTRIAL 4.0 LINE

FILAMENT LOADING:

  • Access the “PRINT / LOAD MATERIAL” menu on your Industrial 4.0 printer.
  • Wait for the extruder (or extruders, if there are more than one) to reach the desired temperature.
  • Place the filament in the hole in the thread puller on the printer. Make sure the filament is well placed and runs unobstructed.
  • Confirm the start of the material loading process and wait for the filament to be extruded by the extruder. This can take a while, so keep your printer under control during this process.
  • After the filament is loaded, click on “AUTO HOME” to place the print head in the home position.

FILAMENT LOADING ON DUAL EXTRUDER:

If your printer has a dual extruder, you will need to repeat the operation separately for each extruder.

FILAMENT REMOVAL:

To remove the filament, follow these steps:

  • Heat the desired extruder via the printer menu, usually “prepare” > “preheat PLA/ABS”.
  • Once the correct temperature is reached, manually extrude a small amount of material from the filament.
  • Push down the “pliers” placed on the thread puller to unlock the filament itself, at the same time, gently pull the filament upwards to remove it completely from the extruder.

FILAMENT REPLACEMENT:

  • Make sure the extruder is still hot. You can use the printer’s menu to maintain the desired temperature.
  • Insert the new filament into the hole in the thread puller and make sure it is well seated.
  • Manually turn the black knob counterclockwise until the new material is extruded from the extruder. This ensures that the new filament is fully loaded and ready to print.
