Vesconite Bearings’ Christian Brumloop, has been carrying out testing of Vesconite Hilube bushings on a 3D printer, convinced that 3D printing will revolutionise the manufacturing industry and that Vesconite Bearings needs to be at the forefront of 3D-printer-component and filament supply.
While the latter is still under investigation, Brumloop has shown that Vesconite Hilube bushings are well suited to 3D printers.
Brumloop notes that he has installed ten self-lubricating hard-wearing Vesconite Hilube bushings on the test unit and that they work well.
“The noise reduction is huge. The printer sounds completely different. So much better,” he enthuses.
Brumloop has ensured that the calibration of the extruder is perfect and is satisfied with his printed parts ― which is high praise from someone who is a veteran expert on moulding of polymer components.
