Step 1:Insert the PTFE socket into PEEK isolator
The dark brown (bigger part) is PEEK isolator and white colour (smaller part) is PTFE socket. Insert the PTFE socket into PEEK isolator as show in the picture and tighten it using the grub screws.
Step 2: Seal the Thread using PTFE tape
Use PTFE thread seal tape (not in kit) and apply few turns then, screw the nozzle on the heat barrel as show in picture
Warning: Don’t hold the barrel on thread, since it will damage the threads.
Note: PTFE thread seal is very important, else the molten filament may leak via smalls gaps
Step 3: Now screw the heater block
Step 4: Seal the Thread using PTFE tape
Use PTFE thread seal tape (not in kit) and apply few turns as show in picture
- Note: PTFE thread seal is very important, else the molten filament may leak via smalls gaps
Step 5: Screw in the PEEK
Now complete the hotend assembly by screwing in the PEEK.
Step 6: Solder and assemble the thermistor
Solder the thermistor and 2 pin flat wire connector. Use the heat shrink and PTFE tube for insulation as shown in picture
Step 7: heating cartridge assembly
Insert the heating cartridge into heater block and use the grub screw to hold it in place.
Step 8: thermistor assembly
Insert the thermistor in small hole and use the grub screw and tight gently
- Warning: Over tightening may damage the thermistor.
Done: Finally assembled hotend should look like this.
