These refurbished systems were restored back to their former glory. They may have a few dents or scratches but the inside is as good as new. These systems come with a 90-day warranty. For any information please refer to the EX2 page.

Please note that we may not always have a refurbished system in stock and it is first come first serve when they are available.

Refurbished systems can't be applied to bundles nor can they be any further discounted.


The Filabot EX2 system is our mid-level  extrusion system. The EX2 features a three-stage extrusion screw made from hardened and polished high-carbon steel. This proprietary, patent-pending screw  is designed to pressurize plastics during the extrusion process, assisting in diameter control and boosting the overall output. The mixing capability of the screw is enhanced by the utilization of a progressive compression section, which applies shear force between the polymer and the barrel wall. The EX2 also features extrusion speed control. The speed control board includes an automatic, variable voltage control module that is engineered to regulate the precise RPM of the screw as forces fluctuate in the extrusion process. When used with the Filabot Spooler, tolerances of +/-0.05mm can be achieved at a rate of 2 lbs an hour.

The Filabot EX6 extruder is our professional level system, designed to be the best system for developing new polymers and for production of filament. The EX6 features a three-stage extrusion screw made from hardened and polished high-carbon stainless steel. The screw can be easily removed for cleaning and can be swapped out with the various other screw profiles to match the processing requirements of the polymer. With this new system, screws with different characteristics can be used as needed for each specific polymer, allowing screw designs to be tested and polymer output and consistency optimized. All screws have a 24:1 L/D ratio giving greater versatility and control compared to other extruders.
