It's that time of the year again, we have been pushing out our lovely Re-work and what better way to do it than to give it away with qualifying orders !!!

So how does it work ? 

Order 3 Rolls of our Filament ( ABS, PETG, PLA or PLA-Plus) and then add a roll of the Re-worked, Simples !!! If you order 6 rolls you get two for free 9 rolls three and so forth!!!  You only need to add one roll of Re-worked to your order and we will do the math :-). 

***Please note Colour Fade packs class as one roll towards your three :-). 

 

So what's Re-Worked filament? During the production of filament, you end up with some funny-sized filament that can't be used for 3D Printing. We gather up this waste filament and chop it up with our pelletizer, turning it back into pellets we call post-industrial waste. It's all our waste, the same grade of resin just been extruded once and then recovered by us.

 

Once we have enough of the chopped-up material we place it into a special machine that hardens the pellet, This is important so that it can handle the higher drying temperature we need to make it ready for extrusion. Once heated and cooled it's sucked over to our drying hoppers, these hoppers are fed with super dry air (-69°C Dew point) and heated to 90°C to drive out any moisture.

 

After drying, the material is sucked out of the drying hoppers and fed via a magnetic screen into our extruder. Our reworked filament skips the colouring process (already has colour) and goes into our extruder to be turned into filament all over again.

 

This process helps reduce our waste significantly and is common practice in most industries. What makes our Re-worked filament a little bit more special is that it’s a 100% recovered material. This is due to some special machinery that allows us to do this without having to add extra virgin material.

 

The Colour will shift slightly although it's generally a dark metallic Grey Brown

  • Brought to you from our Factory in Greater Manchester (United Kingdom) we are looking to expand our range with new exciting materials and colours. We have tested a wide range of filaments over the years and we are now very happy with the product we now have. We are holding a tolerance of +-0.03 of a mm (Over 52 kilometer run, a human hair is .04) and we use only the highest quality material on the market. With these tolerances and high quality materials it will help take the guess work out of 3D printing.

DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT

We are always interested in new projects, so if you are passionate about your new idea contact us. We are only too happy to lend a hand with Special Sponsorship programs with varying amount of support based off the level of interaction to the 3D Printing community. Be that in Education or individuals with a passion.
