For the Filachopper and Reclaimer Bundle click here. This product listing is for the Filabot Reclaimer unit only.
The Filabot Reclaimer is a grinder unit that breaks down plastic, plastic in failed print form, waste plastics, etc. and turns that plastic into particles that can be further processed in the our Filabot extruders. This unit has a two stage breakdown process. The first stage, the Shredder, breaks down large chunks of plastics into smaller pieces, from there the broken down chunks are fed into the Granulator that breaks the pieces down to the final extrudable size.
Assembly Required - The Filabot Reclaimer is shipped in three separate boxes. Assembly is required to use the unit.Recycling Process
Recycling plastic is a process that if followed correctly will produce great results. Ground material has much inconstancy in size, therefore it is not currently possible to produce high tolerance filament directly from grindings. Producing printable filament requires these steps using our Filabot hardware.
