Health and Safety Warnings

General Machining and Fabrication Equipment Safety Warnings

WARNING: Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire, and/or serious injury.

SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

  1. Work area safety:
    1. Keep the work area clean and well-lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
    2. Do not operate 3D printers in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. 3D printers create heat which may ignite dust or fumes.
    3. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a 3D printer.
    4. Minimize distractions to maintain focus on your work. Distractions can cause you to lose control of the 3D printer.
  2. Electrical safety:
    1. 3D printer plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
    2. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
    3. Do not expose 3D printers to damp, rain or wet conditions. Water entering a 3D printer will increase the risk of electric shock.
    4. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the 3D printer. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
    5. When operating a 3D printer with an extension cord, only use cords suitable for the applicable power load. The use of a cord unsuitable for the applicable power load increases the risk of electric shock and fire.
  3. Personal safety:
    1. Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use common sense when operating a 3D printer. Do not use a 3D printer while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating a 3D printer may result in serious personal injury.
    2. Use personal protective equipment and wear it properly. Always wear eye protection.
    3. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to a power source, picking up, or handling components of a 3D printer.
    4. Remove all metal objects, adjusting key or wrench before turning the 3D printer on. A metal object, wrench, or key can conduct electricity as well as heat which may result in personal injury, equipment damage, or fire.
    5. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This risks injury in unexpected situations.
    6. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
    7. Devices for the collection and extraction of dust, when connected and properly used, can reduce, but do not eliminate, dust-related hazards.
  4. 3D printer use and care:
    1. Do not force the 3D printer to perform beyond its rated power output or temperature capabilities. Use the correct 3D printer for your application.
    2. Do not use the 3D printer if the power switch does not turn it on and off. Any 3D printer that cannot be controlled with the power switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
    3. Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the 3D printer. Failing to do so increases the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
    4. Store idle 3D printers out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with 3D printers or these instructions to operate the power tool. 3D printers are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
    5. Maintain the 3D printer. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the 3D printer’s operation. If damaged, have the 3D printer repaired before use. Accidents can result from poorly maintained 3D printers.
    6. Use the 3D printer, accessories, and nozzles, etc. in accordance with their instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the 3D printer for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
  5. Service:
    1. Have your 3D printer serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts.

Mosquito® Magnum+™ Hotends Safety Warnings

  1. Adherence to Instructions:
    1. This product comes with high-powered electronics. All installation and assembly instructions must be adhered to.
    2. Installation and assembly instructions can be found at: https://support.sliceengineering.com/portal/en/kb/slice-engineering/assembly-instructions.
    3. After reading the instructions, if you are still unsure of how to install and configure the Mosquito® Magnum+™ Hotend correctly, please contact our customer support team.
  2. Plastic structural components in proximity to the hotend:
    1. When installing the Mosquito® Magnum+™ Hotend in the 50W configuration, or any other Slice Engineering® hotend in a 50W configuration, all plastic structural components used between the hotend and the nearest linear guide rail:
      1. Must be made of a material with a Deflection Temperature at 0.45 MPa (per ISO 75) of at least 90°C
      2. Have solid infill to help dissipate heat
      3. Use solid metal threaded inserts, not helical inserts, where threads are required
  1. Single 50W Heater Installation:
    1. The Mosquito® Magnum+™ Hotend configured with a single 50W heater is suitable for most non-industrial applications when operated by individuals familiar with 3D printer operations.
  2. Dual 50W Heater Installation:
    1. Installation of dual 50W heaters (i.e. 100W of total heating power) into the Mosquito® Magnum+™ Hotend should be performed by a professional 3D printer manufacturer or professional automation engineer.
    2. Electrical current limitations of the 3d printer and its components must not be exceeded.
    3. Temperatures can exceed 600°C, which can ignite plastic and cause third-degree burns if touched.
    4. Use of attachments between the hotend and guide rail must be composed of metal structures to a metal recirculating ball bearing carriage riding on a metal guide rail.
    5. Metal attachments must be configured such that excess heat generated in a failure scenario involving runaway heating combined with the malfunction of the heatsink fan, temperature sensor, or liquid cooling system can dissipate through the metal structure of said attachments reducing the risk of injury, fire, and damage to the 3D printer.
    6. Attachment by plastic structures is prohibited if dual 50W heaters are installed since plastic restricts the dissipation of heat, may soften and structurally fail, increasing the risk of injury, fire, and damage to the 3D printer.
    7. Implementation of redundant temperature sensors is recommended.

DESCRIPTION +

Cooling Fan Not Required
Distinguished by its compact and lightweight design, Mosquito Conduct does not require a dedicated cooling fan. Instead, it efficiently conducts heat to a small bearing bronze heat sink called a "Base" mounted to a metallic part that conducts heat away from the Base. The mating part must have 88 cm2 of surface area exposed to room temperature air for radiative and convective heat transfer to facilitate cooling or use liquid cooling.

Quick-Release Design
The Mosquito Base Conduct incorporates a quick-release geometry, enabling swift and hassle-free swapping of the entire hotend. This feature proves invaluable for maintenance or upgrading purposes, allowing users to adapt their printing setups effortlessly. Whether working in high-temperature or lower-temperature environments, the quick-release mechanism simplifies the hotend swapping process, saving time and effort. mance.

Conduction-Cooled Bimetallic Heat Break™
Mosquito Conduct incorporates a Bimetallic Heat Break that is optimized for conductive cooling. Effectively dissipating heat from the hotend prevents heat creep and maintains consistent and reliable printing performance. Crafted with a highly conductive copper alloy and strain-hardened, abrasion-resistant steel, this heat break conducts 85% less heat up the filament path when compared to standard threaded heat breaks.

Equipped for Excellence
Every Mosquito Conduct now comes with a GammaMaster Nozzle & Boron Nitride Paste, two essential accessories that elevate your 3D printing experience. The GammaMaster® Nozzle excels in even the most demanding applications with robust, abrasion-resistant performance and exceptional thermal capabilities. Boron Nitride Paste, a thermal conduction enhancement, and potting agent, is included to simplify heater and sensor installation.
