Gigabot X

An industrial 3d printer-to 3d print directly from reclaimed plastic pellets or flake

  • World Alliance Member
  • Featured Solution
  • Labelled Solution
Label Date November 27, 2019
From United States
Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 3-4 - Commercial Scale Up / Multiple commercial Applications

It is low-cost high-quality large-format 3D printer that uses recycled fused filament. Nowadays filament is marked up about 10 times over the cost of plastic feedstock. This makes 3-D printing large objects relatively expensive. Gigabot X allows for the use of much less expensive pellets of plastic, as well as to use shredded recycled materials to produce new objects, giving anyone at anytime and anywhere the opportunity to manufacture local solutions sustainably.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Repurposes 30,000 bottles / month into functional products from the consistent use of only one pellet printer
  • Uses only 0.85 kWh/hr

The Financial Benefits

  • For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.89 is added to the local economy
