Filabot Industrial Reclaimer

Nicholas Mendizabal 0 comments

3D printing begets 3D waste, and for some, the volume is considerable. Our high volume solution for this is the Filabot 'Industrial Reclaimer', which is capable of granulating 3D waste at a clip of 170 lbs an hour. With far more processing power than an individual would need, this unit is geared toward the deployment in makerspaces and organizations that wish to process waste on site.  

In the short video below, we process 3D waste that we received from Voodoo Manufacturing in NYC. Voodoo Manufacturing, a 3D design, protoyping, and production house - is fully committed to closing the loop on 3D waste. You can learn more about them at https://www.voodoomfg.com/.  

The equipment used in this process are the Filabot Industrial Reclaimer which granulates the failed prints, a Filabot EX2 unit that extrudes the granulated plastic into filament, and the Filabot Spooler which of course spools up the extrusion.
