Although a simple metal block, the heater block is a crucial part of any hotend assembly. Your nozzle directly attaches to the heater block and as your cartridge heats it up, so will your nozzle heat up for filament to pass through smoothly. While it has a relatively fancy name, this MK8 Heater Block is essentially a small copper plated block with CNC drilled holes, ready to accept the MK8 heat break and MK8 nozzle. The Micro Swiss Copper MK8 Heater Block is also ideal as replacements for faulty heater blocks found on Creality CR10 Series and Ender Series 3D Printers.

This Copper MK8 Heater Block withstands up to 500°C printing temperatures, ideal for upgrading the heater block inside your Micro Swiss Hotends for CR-10 and CR-10S Pro 3D Printers. Using the CNC drilled holes on the heater block, you can install a high-temperature heater cartridgeand PT100 or PT1000 100kΩ thermistor. The heater cartridge is used to heat up the metal block to the desired temperature, which in turn heats up the nozzle and hot half of the heat break, allowing for a smooth extrusion of 3D Filaments. The thermistor then reads and monitors the temperature of the heater block, allowing for accurate closed loop PID control to reach and maintain precision temperatures for optimal 3D Printing.

Micro Swiss Copper MK8 Heater Block - 500°C

Within 3D Printing, there are a few brands whose hard work has made them stand out from the rest, with real innovation and the ability to not only refine old designs, but actually redesign from the ground up to offer more comprehensive upgrades for 3D printing enthusiasts and Makers throughout the world.

Micro Swiss is one such brand that perfectly fits this description, and since their founding back in 2015, the Micro Swiss brand has garnered world-wide attention for the quality, material composition and precision of their hotends, nozzles and other all-metal components. With a core focus on TwinClad XT Plated Brass Nozzles and All-Metal Hotend Upgrades for some of the most popular 3D Printers on the market, it’s no surprise that one of the easiest and most effective upgrades available to Makers are Micro Swiss Replacement Parts and Upgrade Kits.

In addition to the amazing 3D Printing components and upgrades that they produce, Micro Swiss also specialise in Swiss Turning, which is capable of precision CNC machining outer diameters as small as 0.0127mm, as well as CNC milling, tapping and post machining finishing for prototyping. These service offerings and correlating skillsets ensure that the Micro Swiss team is more than just capable of producing consistently high-quality parts, but also capable of identifying precisely where each part could use improvements.

As manufacturers and end-users of everything they produce, Micro Swiss is one of the most impressive brands we’ve had the pleasure of dealing with, and we look forward to all of the exciting refinements and developments that they are bound to bring out in the future.
