What’s the difference between Spitfire and Spitfire X Extruders?

The Spitfire X extruder represents the latest evolution in the Spitfire extruder line. Here are some technical details and important information about its compatibility:

GENERAL COMPATIBILITY: The Spitfire X extruder is available in two versions with different voltages: 12V and 24V. This voltage choice allows it to be used with various Delta WASP printers.

12V VERSIONS COMPATIBILITY: The 12V version of the Spitfire X extruder (the new version of the Spitfire Black extruder) is compatible with the following Delta WASP printers:

  • Delta WASP 2040
  • Delta WASP 2040 Turbo
  • Delta WASP 4070
  • Delta WASP 60100

24V VERSIONS COMPATIBILITY: The 24V version of the Spitfire X extruder (the new version of the Spitfire Red extruder) is compatible with the following Delta WASP printers:

  • Delta WASP 2040 PRO
  • Delta WASP 2040 T2
  • Delta WASP 4070 IND
  • Delta WASP 4070 IND 4.0
  • Delta WASP 2040 IND 4.0
  • Delta WASP 3MT IND

MAIN DIFFERENCE: The main innovation of the Spitfire X extruder compared to previous versions is its internal system. This system allows changing only the nozzle, which is made of hardened steel, rather than the entire cartridge. This simplifies the maintenance process and nozzle replacement, making the operation faster and more efficient.

NOTE: It’s important to note that the Spitfire X extruder does not support complete cartridge replacement. Therefore, it’s not possible to install complete cartridges on this extruder. Additionally, nozzles specifically designed for the Spitfire X extruder are not compatible with previous versions of Spitfire extruders.

Make sure to choose the correct version of the Spitfire X extruder based on your Delta WASP printer and keep these compatibility and nozzle replacement system details in mind when maintaining or upgrading your 3D printer.
