Filabot EX6 Filament Extruder - Standard Series

  • Description
  • Specs
  • Videos

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.

The EX6 features extrusion speed control and a 4 zone temperature control system. The speed control board includes an automatic, variable voltage control module that is engineered to regulate the precise RPM of the screw. The temperature zones are independently controlled allowing for a polymer specific heat profile.

The Filabot EX6 comes with a full one-year warranty on all parts.

Free Shipping in North America! *NEW: ProtoCycler+ Grinderless Model!* *NEW* ProtoCycler+ Grinderless Model Available Now! Free Shipping within the Continental USA and Canada on All Models!

Trusted by Researchers and Educators in the world’s largest institutions. We are Independently Certified and Globally Compliant.

Filament Extrusion

We build the best filament extrusion system on the market, against any competitor, at any price point. Our advantage stems from our patented MixFlow™ filament extrusion technology that has a thermally isolated auger, allowing for independent temperature and pressure control. This allows our system to outperform other extruders, even those that use multiple heat zones.

This all results in a far superior quality of 3D printer filament.

Our system also boasts a unique dual optical diameter feedback system, integrated cooling and spooling, and our advanced software that lets you extrude filament in autopilot.


Recycle your 3D Printing Waste

Our system comes with a mechanical grinder that can shred any unneeded 3D prints, rafting or support material, and other 3D printing waste into granules that can be used to make new filament. Our system allows for compounding of plastics with a single screw. Safe for a classroom environment, and you can recycle PLA, ABS, PETG, HIPS, Nylon 12, and more!

Save your wallet, and the planet! Reduce 3D printing filament costs by 80% and recycle all your waste in the process. Whether it's your bottom line, or the planet's... ProtoCycler+ just makes sense.


Research and Develop New Materials

The ProtoCycler+ comes with our Command Center software that tracks 20+ parameters related to filament extrusion, allowing you to experiment and create new materials for 3D printing or otherwise. Command Center is the most comprehensive filament extrusion software available.

I was impressed at the control my team had in filament prototyping. The hardware and software were much more accessible and comprehensive than the large filament extruder we use for fiber infused PLA. It was very easy to know what parameters to change when prototyping new filaments. The data outputted by the sensors allows you to know what parameters to adjust from basic temp and speed to PID weights. We were able to prototype and extrude new filaments in a relatively short time span. We got the results we wanted. Best filament extruder for prototyping without a doubt!

I love making good quality filament with my ProtoCycler! The menu structure is easy to understand and the ability to load and create new profiles is great. Having the ability to change settings on the fly (through the software) is really useful while experimenting with new materials as changes can be made in real time.

I tried the ProtoCycler+, and it is a perfectly functional device! The filament extrusion software works great. I have nothing but praise!

Very cool tech! I have had a lot of fun being able to personally recycle my own prints and make my own filament using the ProtoCycler+
