See our Raise 3D below printing in Carbon PLA with the new Tungsten nozzle... Finish is exceptional.

Your nozzle is the last and final step in your extrusion system, and maybe the most important part of your 3D printer.

With plain plastic, any common metal can easily hold up against the flow. Unfortunately, once we start using plastic filaments with hard reinforcement fibers such as carbon and glass, things start to get more complicated; these reinforcement materials will scratch the inner wall of your nozzle orifice as they pass due to the flow and pressure. Both glass and carbon are known to be very hard, a lot harder than any metals, resulting in what is known as abrasion inside your nozzle.

The more you print; the worse it gets…

That’s why Technologyoutlet, a dedicated and passionate team working on the development of high performance 3D printer parts, created the Tungsten Carbide Nozzle: a state of the art nozzle that offers good durability and performance for almost any 3D printer, such as

“Tungsten carbide, not to be confounded with tungsten alloy, which is metal, is the ceramic of choice when it comes to wear and abrasion resistance. Cutting tools for steel and tool steel are made from tungsten carbide. It is also used extensively in the mining industry as a button insert for crushing rocks,” says Philippe Carrier, Dyze Design’s Chief Research Officer. “Moreover, the high thermal performance of the tungsten carbide keeps the nozzle tip hot, thus allowing faster printing speed without sacrificing the quality.”

Why should I use the tungsten carbide nozzle?

  • Ultra wear resistant
    The high hardness of tungsten carbide will provide a carefree extrusion experience. Its unparalleled wear resistance will ensure that both the nozzle diameter and flat will keep the same dimension, and so will your printed parts.
  • Low pushing force
    The high thermal conductivity of both the nozzle tip and body will pump all the required heat to maintain an even temperature while extruding. Viscosity highly depends on the plastic temperature for a constant shear rate. The flow pressure will be constant resulting in excellent results and stability. The ease of pushing the filament will give an extra margin for your extruder safety.
  • Faster speed
    Due to the high thermal performance of the nozzle in general, the printing speed can be pushed even further without sacrificing the quality. The special shape inside the nozzle allowed by the manufacturing technique improves the flow where the diameter gets reduced, thus allowing a faster flow rate.
  • Any material
    From printing PLA to carbon fiber reinforced plastics, this nozzle can handle anything. The low friction coating greatly helps with flexible filaments allowing, them to slide through the nozzle. A single nozzle will offer quality prints, wear resistance, and high flow, so there is no need to get a ton of different nozzles when a single one can offer the best of all worlds.
  • Unbeatable price / performance
    Tungsten carbide is easier to produce than corundum (Sapphire, Ruby, etc) and the performance is very similar for abrasion and much more performant for thermal conductivity.
