OpenBeam Kossel lengths are end of line

MakerBeamXL will replace the black anodised OpenBeam Kossel longer lengths (750mm, 360mm) once these are out stock. The clear anodised version and the shorter lengths (600mm and 240mm) will not be replaced.

Due to disappointing sales we made the decision to stop selling the shorter lengths that are meant for building a Kossel printer. The 600mm OpenBeam black (100685 – already sold out) and clear (100832) anodised and the OpenBeam 240mm black (100641) and clear anodised (100809) are end of line.

For the longer lengths (750mm and 360mm) we made the decision to offer these lengths in MakerBeamXL black anodised. These MakerBeamXL Kossel lenghts will only be available in small numbers. The MakerBeamXL Kossel lengths will be put online once we are out of stock for the OpenBeam black (100696, 100674) and clear anodised (101563, 101552).

Test setup vibration sensor with MakerBeamXL

Sensornet (.nl/english) is specialised in accurate, long-term measurement of environmental noise vibrations, air pollution and other environmental parameters. In order to calibrate their vibration sensor they needed a test setup. They wanted to test the response of the vibration sensor before it was used outdoors. First they looked into using a laboratory stand. This idea was rejected since the specialised equipment is rather expensive for just a simple test setup. Then they came across MakerBeam.

MakerBeamXL was thought to be the best option to use to carry the weight of their equipment and the lengths needed. Below you can see some pictures they sent us of their test setup in the office. The laser measurement device (in yellow) is used to calibrate the vibration sensor. The sensor is just above the metal tube. The metal tube is the vibration generator.

Products (almost) out of stock

Several products are (almost) out of stock: MakerBeam black anodised kits, MakerBeamXL black anodised kits, 600mm black anodised, 300mm black anodised etc.
Therefore we are also (almost) out of stock for our kits. Black anodised beams (MakerBeamXL or MakerBeam) have lowest stock levels.

We are expecting a new batch of beams coming in this July.  Around July 20th 2017 we will be fully stocked again.

You might want to check our resellers for their stock levels if you want a particular item that is out of stock in our webshop. Here is the link: Country list – Where to buy
