ULTRA PERFORMANCE EXTRUDER

Industrial Glass Fiber Reinforced

Composite Heated Bed

The glass fiber reinforced heated bed provides a great print surface for all types of filament.

 

We use a custom laser cut BuildTak G10FR4 composite heated build surface for excellent thermal stability even at high temps combined with an 800 Watt heated pad. The bed is controlled by the printer via an external Solid State Relay (SSR) with PID tuning and fuse protection.

 

The result is a bed that combines the thermal stability of glass and the resilience of aluminum for a perfect heating cycle. You can adjust temperatures per layer, fine tune the heating cycle and turn off the bed remotely with the gTouch Controller.
