The drying station can heat up to 120°C, which makes it easy to dry out filaments that have absorbed moisture and restore the properties of the filaments.
The drying station ensures long-term filament preservation due to the silica gel desiccant located inside. The desiccant can be reused for up to one year, which is both economical and environmentally friendly.
The system will automatically match the appropriate drying temperature and duration for the selected filament, which ensures ease of use and a good result.
The drying station can hold 6 rolls of 1 kg filament or 2 rolls of 2.5 kg filament.ù
Reusable desiccant, economical and environmentally friendly
When the desiccant absorbs moisture and reaches its saturation, the system will automatically start the regeneration mode and the moisture in the desiccant will be discharged through hot air circulation. Therefore, the desiccant can be reused for 1 year.
Hygroscopicity, the tendency to absorb moisture, is a great enemy of 3D printing. Even a small percentage of moisture will have a negative impact on the properties of most carbon fiber filaments, fiberglass filaments and other materials. Printing with wet filaments will not only lead to surface quality defects, but also destroy the material properties, which will result in the inability to meet the requirements of the final application. The importance of proper storage and drying of materials is obvious.

The mechanical properties of 3D printed parts are highly dependent on the preservation of filaments
Filament after being dried
Print PAHT after drying:
Impact resistance is increased by 100%;
Tensile strength increased by 26%
Print PA12-CF after drying:
Impact resistance is increased by 25%;
Tensile strength increased by 50%
Annealing can obviously improve the strength of some 3D printed parts
Annealing treatment has a significant effect on PA-based materials, which can improve the strength of PA/PAHT/PA-CF while maintaining adequate impact resistance.
