The Orbiter is a tiny light weight extruder with 10Kg's of pushing weight. Weighing in at a mighty 140g this little guy really punches way above it's weight class.
To do so, the orbiter was designed with a planetary gear box, which means it has a 7.5:1 gear ratio. This allows it to be both light and powerful.
The Fysetc model is printed in SLS Nylon PA12, has hardened steel dual drive gears, and have even gone as far as having the motors specifically manufactured and branded for them for these little guys.
Even though the orbiter has a higher than normal gear ratio, that doesn't mean you lose out on speed, there are vids on youtube showing the orbiter keeping up with a CoreXY printer running at 400mm/s without skipping a beat.
So, if you are in the market for a new extruder, this is definitely something you should be looking at.
