One of the great touches of the Micro Swiss CR-6 SE Hotend Kit is the thoughtful inclusion of a quality Silicone Sock Insulator. These small flexible covers wrap snugly around your heater block, giving it a smart look and important benefits. Micro Swiss have made their silicone socks for heat-resistance and non-stick to help keep your heater block clean. If you find yourself in need of more handy sock insulators, this 3-pack of Micro Swiss Silicone Socks for CR-6 SE slip easily over your Micro Swiss aluminium heater block and can handle the high temperatures you throw at it.


What are the Key Benefits of Using a Silicone Sock Insulator?

While some people may not quite understand why silicone sock insulators have been slowly gaining popularity over the past few years, once you start understanding what silicone socks do, the benefits suddenly become obvious, with two distinct benefits standing out from the rest. The first of these distinct benefits is that the sock stretches and fits snugly around the heater block, which then helps to prevent heat loss and keeps the heater block at ideal 3D Printing temperatures.

The second distinct benefit is similar to the first, but is more closely related to cooling PLA, as the silicone sock also helps to prevent heat loss caused by the part cooling fan. This enables you to crank that fan up to the max for tall, thin prints so that they can quickly solidify and not melt or fall over from too much weight on prints that are still hardening and gaining structural stability.

Finally, the last benefit that these socks offer, although it’s not necessarily related to print quality, is that they keep your Heater Blocks clean and fresh, which does help a little towards preventing heat loss while also keeping old melted filament from interfering with the current print, but is primarily just for aesthetics.

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.
