The Filabot EX6 Extruder is a polymer extruder designed to bring many common features from large-scale production extruders to small-scale filament production, and laboratory research equipment. This system has been completely designed for research and development laboratories, creating a device that excels as both test equipment and production equipment.
Multiple heat zones allow for custom heat profiles to match the correct melting profile of any polymer. The EX6 features a removable screw that can be accessed without having to open the machine, which also allows easy cleaning.
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.
The Filabot EX6 comes with a full one-year warranty on all parts.
