Have you ever wondered what makes the Snapmaker 2.0 machines dustproof? Do you know how well the linear modules protect your Snapmaker? To answer these questions, we conducted a limit test on the machine during the pilot production. Let’s check it out.
- Test Time: Over 50 hours
- Carving Material: 150 x 150 x 30 mm³ Medium-Density Fiberboard (MDF)
- Tool: 2.5mm flat end mill
- Stepdown: 0.1mm
- Test Process: Stimulate heavy workload scenario. Test the dustproof performance of the X, Y, Z linear modules. Disassemble the module and evaluate the dust accumulation and distribution on the main parts inside it: groove, lead screw, circuit board on the motor, guide rail, slider, and the interior wall of the module.
- Test Result: There’s almost no dust inside the linear module.
The tightness of the steel strip can greatly affect the dustproof performance of the linear module. We have conducted many dust-resistant tests with different degrees of tightness of the steel strips. And we found the optimal tightness to achieve the best dustproof performance. We have also conducted this test on more materials (POM and Beech Wood) to ensure that steel strip can protect the main parts from dust and dirt in most scenarios.
The Snapmaker 2.0 is always getting better. During the pilot production, we have not only conducted various tests to ensure the reliability and durability of the machine, but also optimized the workflow on the touchscreen and software to ensure they are user-friendly. There will be some new features coming with the Snapmaker 2.0 as well. We will introduce them in the next newsletter. 🙂
At Snapmaker, we are excited to do everything we can to make useful features available to you, our early supporters. What do you think of the linear module of Snapmaker 2.0? Click the below button to learn more about Snapmaker 2.0 and seize the last chance to save 540 USD for the A350!
