Transporting the 3D Culinary Printer and Finishing Station

Printer

Before the certified Field Engineer (FE) arrives, use a forklift or pallet jack if possible to move the printer crate to the room where the printer will be staged. While the printer does have casters, it risks damage to the unit to roll it over floor seams; avoid this if possible. Once the FE arrives, he/she will remove the crate ceiling and all of the crate walls, one of which has a ramp installed inside. The FE will remove any shipping brackets and roll the printer down the ramp and into place. Once this is done, you may then move the printer via the casters within that area. The printer will need to be placed near a power outlet.
