The drywise innovative design and its advanced technology have revolutionized the production process, significantly reducing production times for the industry by effectively removing moisture and maintaining optimal filament conditions, the Drywise inline 3D filament dryer ensures consistent and reliable printing results.
Its ability to handle diverse range of filaments and to seamlessly switch between materials, maximizing efficiency and productivity can unlock new levels of speed and accuracy, accelerating customer production timelines and driving innovation forward.
Hygroscopic FDM filaments tend to absorb significant amounts of moisture from the environment over the course of a few days. Some materials cannot be printed out of the box due to high moisture levels already present in the material. The presence of moisture in filaments can cause visible artefacts during printing, including: poor surface finish, stringing and oozing. Moisture in filaments can potentially cause print failure and potentially affect the mechanical properties of the printed part. As a result moisture sensitive materials need to be dried prior to printing, however without special storage or pre -treatment the print quality can still degrade noticeably, especially during the course of a longer print
Benefits of the Drywise Filament Dryer
As an in-line system, the drywise dryer only dries the part of the filament used for printing, during the 3D printing process as opposed to drying the whole spool. Conventional methods can take up to 48 hours to dry wet filament and can damage the filament spool and/or the filament itself. The filament drying process is pre-calibrated and tailored for every material type, taking out the guesswork required when using traditional drying methods.
