The Olsson Ruby
Five reasons to get the Olsson Ruby
The Olsson Ruby will work with a huge range of materials.
PLA, ABS, CPE/PET, Nylon, and composites with abrasive additives such as Carbon fibre, Steel, Wood, Boron Carbide, Tungsten and Phosphorescent pigment, are some of the materials sucessfully tested so far.
Highly wear resistant
The ruby mounted at the tip makes sure that even the toughest materials will be printable. It was originally designed for printing with Boron Carbide (B4C), the third hardest known material in the world.
Excellent heat conductivity
Since most of the Olsson Ruby is made from brass, with its excellent heat conductivity, performance and throughput is first-class.
People all over the world have been testing different iterations of the ruby nozzle since early 2016. We are very happy to have received only good printing results from this community.
The Olsson Ruby is manufactured, assembled and tested in a high-quality facility in Sweden. This is why 3DVerkstan guarantees the very best quality and tolerances.
SUPERIOR RAW MATERIALS
”We’ve been running two of our abrasive filaments XT-CF20 and steelFill to see what these nozzles are made of. The temperatures we’ve used during printing have been very similar to regular brass nozzles, so it seems no big temperature difference are expected using The Olsson Ruby.
In this case we printed the Robot Action Figure designed by le Fab Shop for the 2014 Paris Maker Faire. Print quality looks great with nice details and good layer adhesion.”colorFabb team, Oct 21st, 2016
”The Olsson Ruby pushes the limits of FDM printing, it allows us to print at the same temperatures and speeds as with the regular brass nozzles with amazing pin-point accuracy and it has the added benefit of not having to worry about nozzle wear when printing the more abrasive filaments.
Our customers require and expect us to produce small and precise details every time, and these kinds of developments allows us at sugarpop! to deliver great prints every single day.”Sugarpop! team, Dec 22nd, 2016
”The Olsson Ruby gives us the ability to print with colorFabb XT-CF20. We found out that XT-CF20 is dissipative (ESD) which is essential in our manufacturing processes.
The Olsson Ruby together with XT-CF20 really stepped up our game when it comes to fixtures and tooling.”NORAUTRON, Dec 20nd, 2016
”We have had fantastic results with this new nozzle which, combined with the stiffness of the [XT-CF20] material, offer great functionality in everyday use.
