Precision proximity sensor – DIPS05 Telion Innovative products has re-designed the dual IR proximity sensor to a smaller size. (20 x 17 mm) The dual IR proximity sensor is used to measure precise distance between the print head and the print surface of a 3D printer. The sensor measures the distance between the print-head to the print-surface to an accuracy of 50 microns Telion Rock V3.0 – 3D printer uses this sensor The proximity sensor can be used with any 3D printer for: Z-axis home position Print bed surface mapping Available from: https://www.telion.com.au/product/proximity-sensor-dips05/
The Telion - Rock V3.0 - 3D printer has been designed with very high quality in mind.
All structural and mechanical parts are made from stainless steel or alloy materials. Quality bearings, linear-tracks, motors, electronics and wiring provide a long-lasting 3D printer.
The 3D printer prints parts up to a volume of 350 x 310 x 400 mm (x, y, z) and has a print accuracy of up to 50 microns (0.05 mm).
The 3D printer is supplied in a 37Kg flat pack, as a self-build / assembly kit. Assembly time is approx. 3-4 days.
By assembling the quality and sturdy 3D printer by yourself you spend a fraction of the cost of an equivalent 3D printer at estimated $15'000.
Many 3D printer makers simplify the 3D printer build by adding the filament drive stepper motors to the moving axles/print head (direct filament drive). Due to the added motor weight (up to 700g) the printing process must be slow, If the printing speeds are set too fast, the inertia of acceleration and stopping causes printing errors (skipping or adding steps of the stepper motors).
Telion supplies upgrade kits for the V6.0 E3D extruder hot-end that feature the loose NTC 100K glass bead sensors.
The upgrade kit comes with a new hot end that features a through-hole for the 3x20mm temperature sensor and a grub-screw lock.
The hot end can be fitted with either a PT100 or a NTC-100K sensor, both are housed in a 3x20mm shell.
The PT100 sensor requires an additional amplifier and a firmware upgrade.
The amplifier PCB is included in the upgrade kit.
The new firmware can be downloaded from the telion web site (sing-up to access member downloads)
