Noztek have just launched a new filament winding system. Designed from the ground up, this filament winder has an embedded touch screen which allows greater control over your winding process. The Winder 2.0 is capable of winding up to a 2.2Kg spool and is sfar more accurate than the original.
This unit is a must for anyone using a Noztek Extruder as it enhances the filament tolerances and directly winds all the extruded filament neatly onto a spool. When the winding is done, simply remove the spool and load it directly to your 3D printer.
The winding guide is powered by a belt driven linear actuator using a stepper motor and controlled by our own bespoke software.
We used the laser sensor from our previous winder and tweaked the code for more accuracy. Powered by our own bespoke PCB and Arduino mega and encased secured by a robust metal chassis; this is a professional winding system that can reliably handle any size spool up to 2.2 Kg.
The winder also incorporates a programmable sensor and laser module. It calculates the winding speed by monitoring the height of the filament being extruded, in turn altering the speed of the spool motor to give tangle free results.
There are two easy to use mode settings ‘automatic’ and ‘testing’, used interchangably as you customise according to the materials you’re working with. As a default, the winder is calibrated to spool standard 1.75mm and 3mm filament tolerances. Our winding system can be optimised by using together with our Filament Tolerence Puller.
Please note: It is not possible to wind transparent filament with this machine. The laser sensor will not detect this as a solid material and so will not respond properly.
This unit is supplied in 220v and 110v versions.
