Olsson Ruby – 1.75mm – M6 thread

The only nozzle series you need!

As you know our goal at Emvio Engineering is not to shift boxes. We want to stock unique and value adding items. This is the reason why we are now working with Olsson Ruby to bring the most hardwearing nozzle to the UK!

The Olsson Ruby is an invention by Anders Olsson, the man that gave the Ultimaker community the Olsson Block. The back story of the Olsson Ruby is one that has inspired us and as one member of our team is well versed in hard metals and materials, it really hit home how elegant the nozzle is.

The Olsson Ruby consists of a precision machined threaded brass body and a perfectly ground ruby tip. Rubies, being aluminium oxide, is extremely hard wearing but unlike some of the other ceramic equivalents has a better thermal conductivity. Best of all, the processes involved in machining it have been established for centuries. Ruby is the watchmakers hard material of choice for jewel bearings after all.

Take a look at the results of tests conducted with carbon filled filament:

Sigma nozzle extruded 0.3kg
Sigma nozzle extruded 0.3kg of filament before being so worn
A stainless nozzle lasted on 1kg
Common misconception - Stainless does not mean hard. This one lasted only 1kg of CF filament
Hardened steel lasted on 4kg
The classic hardened steel nozzles fared ok extruding 4kg of carbon filled

Here is a testimonial from one of our friends and customer Darren K, as posted on Olssonruby.com.  (Darren also purchased a full set of upgrades for his BCN3D Sigma.)

First, I tried a few hardened nozzles and I had thermal issues. I also did try steel but it was like putting my finger in the air to find new standard print parameters each time.

Now, I use the Olsson Ruby and I’m a big fan.The main benefit for it is that i don’t have to worry about a moving target. Once I have things dialed in for the nozzle diameter, that’s where it’ll stay. Normal brass is a variable as it gets worn down and over time that is troublesome when creating parts that have very specific fit qualities.”Darren Keirle, UK, Feb 28th, 2017

E3D Hotend Upgrade – BCN3D Sigma

Warning

Fitting this kit requires reasonable technical ability in mechanical, electrical and also firmware of 3D printers. Although steps have been taken to ensure the process is a smooth one, the risk of damage to your printer exists. Installation also will void your warranty with BCN3D or your local reseller and we are unable to cover you for damage caused during the installation.

We strongly recommend that you have a good working printer before attempting to upgrade. If you printer is not performing for any reason, please consult BCN3D or your reseller before considering upgrading. We test all the turnkey printers extensively before upgrading them!

Orders for the SLS parts have been placed so hang tight for the actual photos.

We uhmmed and arred about launching the E3D Hotend Upgrade for BCN3D Sigma, but seeing the demand from a number of professional organisations as well as individuals, it was time to let the greater public be able to easily ask us for them.

To date, we have been offering turnkey solutions for the upgrade where customers have requested that they receive the machines ready to go. This does come with a price to cover the labour costs as well as warranty of the service.

With the E3D V6 hotends, the Bondtech QR extruders and our own design of mounting hardware, you can turn your otherwise perfect Sigma into a a machine with the best in class hardware.

With the exchange of the hotend to E3D, there is the option to convert your machine to use 1.75mm filament as well. Such a kit was first created for a customer in Japan doing what we feel is a huge service to that country! Customers that have 1.75mm printers already have also been asking for this. The question of course of 1.75mm as a Bowden has been asked and we are happy to say that due to the reliability of both the hotends and the Bondtech Extruders, the system works impressively well.

The video below shows a conversion we completed for a customer in Switzerland being tested using a 0.25mm nozzle. The print is the hollow Draudi model to demonstrate the retraction speed capability of the upgraded machine.

So in the kit you will receive:

  • 2x E3D V6 hotends assembled with 0.4mm nozzles
  • 2x Heater element and 2x thermistor crimped to match the Sigma’s connectors
  • 2x Emvio Shrouds to cover the ribbon cable
  • 2x Nylon SLS hotend holders
  • 2x M3x0.5-20 socket cap screws

You can reuse the existing screws, and fans.

For the machine to function correctly, you will need to upload a slightly modified version of the firmware (available shortly) as well as complete the temperature PID Tuning program.

Full instructions will be made available as soon as we are able to take photos.
