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.

Extrudable Plastics: 4043D PLA, 3D870 PLA, 3D850 PLA, Magnum 8391 ABS, and HIPS. Click here for EX6 Extrusion settings. The EX6 is also capable of processing ABS Flame Retardant, PC, PP, PS, ULTEM, PEEK, NYLON, HDPE, PETG, and WAX. Low to Higher Melt Flow Polymers.
