E3D designed Volcano nozzles with speed and strength as the primary goal. These badboys provide a high flow rate with supreme efficiency, due to both the internal and external anatomy. We're talking ultra-fast, large format printing here.
These nozzles have an extended heated melt zone, which primes the nozzle tip with a faster output. A longer melt zone means more "ooey gooey" plastic ready for printing. We should also mention the inside has been expertly crafted to maximize filment flow and maintains it's composure with a precision tip that ensures extra wide, clean and consistent print trace. This mean better print quality, less margin of error and an overall bias toward speed. An added benefit to having a larger trace and more molten plastic present, is that the surface area allows for a bigger contact area, while the latent heat from this larger area results in increased inter-layer adhesion and a much stronger print overall. To put it simply, the Volcano nozzle prints much faster, and much stronger than your average nozzle.
Each size has a different marking on the hexagonal head (above the tip), making it easy to note which one you are using. Here's the list:

Please note these nozzles are only compatible with the Volcano block on the E3D-V6 HotEnd. Happy printing!
