Improving the Fundamental Building Block

The heater block is the element that holds all the components of a hot end together. The new V6 Heater Block for Sensor Cartridges is the new and improved design that makes it possible to clamp both the heater cartridge and thermistor in place. This block is machined from copper-alloy with nickel plating, created and made available specifically for customers who print at higher temperatures than the standard stainless steel can withstand.

Why Copper?

The plated copper heater blocks can withstand temperatures up to 500°C and also thermally conduct better than other metals. Usually in order to reduce filament adhesion, you would need to use a silicone sock with your heater block. The silicone sock is not recommended at these high temperatures due to its potential to melt. This is where the nickel plating becomes necessary to help the filament glide reducing filament adhesion to the block helping to keep things clean.

Compatible With:

  • v6, Lite6, Titan Aero, Kraken, Chimera
