How to grease the gears on my DyzeXtruder or DyzeXtruder-GT

A first check should be done during the first extruded spool to ensure the extruder is working properly. The extruder should then be checked every 50 kg extruded. Heated chamber should be checked more frequently than standard setups.

Lubricant type

Grease lubricant such as white lithium grease is optimal for the DyzeXtruder GT usage.

ISO Viscosity grade should be between 150 and 220, or NLGI Class 2.

Loctite LB 8042, MG Chemicals 8461-85ML or equivalent is suggested.
