    Machine Types:
  • #1
    Extrusion: Extrusion is a continuous process where plastic flakes are inserted in the hopper and extruded into a line of plastic. These lines can be used to make new raw material (3d printing filament), granulate, spinned around a mold or up to you to find new creative ways.
  • #2
    Injection: Plastic flakes are heated and injected into a mold. It’s a relative quick process and well suited to create small objects in production. You can make the molds completely yourself using CNC to mill the lathe or simply welding them.
  • #3
    Compression: Plastic is heated inside the oven and slowly pressed into a mold with a carjack. Well suited to make large and more solid objects, the oven itself is also a great machine for prototyping and making plastic test.
  • #4
    Shredder: Plastic waste is shredded into flakes which will be used in the other machines to create new things. You can select the output size of these flakes by changing the sieve inside the machine to create different patterns and processes.
