Collection: Chipboard 3D Printer Filament Spools

Chipboard 3D Printer Filament Spools

Introducing Our New Eco-Friendly Chipboard 1kg Spools
We are excited to announce the launch of our new eco-friendly chipboard 3D printer filament spools for 1kg Coex 3D filament. These spools are made from 100% recycled materials and are designed to be recyclable at the end of their life.
We know that 3D printing can be a great way to reduce waste, but the traditional plastic spools that 3D filament comes on can create a lot of pollution. That's why we developed these new eco-friendly 3D printer spools.
Our chipboard spools are made from recycled paper and chipboard. They are strong and durable and can hold up to the rigors of 3D printing with minimal dust.
In addition to being eco-friendly, our 3D printer filament chipboard spools are designed to fit inside the Bambu Lab AMS.
We are committed to making 3D printing more sustainable, and we believe that our new eco-friendly chipboard spools are a step in the right direction. 
Filament on these chipboard spools are being made and shipping now, however, there will be a transition as we sell through the existing stock of filament on the plastic spools.  Please contact us if you would like to find out what materials and colors we have on the chipboard spools. support@coex3d.com
Benefits of Using Eco-Friendly Chipboard Spools
There are many benefits to using chipboard 3D printer filament spools. Here are just a few:
  • Sustainability: Chipboard spools are made from recycled materials, so they help to reduce waste.
  • Recyclability: Chipboard spools are recyclable at the end of their life, so they don't end up in landfills.
  • Strength: Chipboard spools are strong and durable so that they can hold up to the rigors of 3D printing.
If you are looking for an eco-friendly and sustainable product for 3D printing, then eco-friendly chipboard spools are the perfect solution.
Note: In our testing, we did not experience any issues with using the chipboard material in the AMS. That said, if you'd like a spool edge protector, we offer a downloadable file on our Printables page for that!

Our Resins

Our resins are sourced from suppliers committed to high quality standards. Our partnerships with these suppliers ensures we maintain quality and consistent filament batch after batch. We only use prime virgin resins, colorants and processing additives to ensure reliability.

Our Grades of Materials

We believe in our filament so much, we often tell customers to start with our base filaments and compare them to the other makers higher grade filament. But we didn't stop with a great base grade, we also offer Prime in our PLA and ABS lineup. Prime is a more refined resin which improves print quality and strength.

Our Quality Control

We quality control the entire process of our filament. Starting with an incoming inspection process, we verify the resin is the quality we expect. Precise temperatures are monitored during extrusion. Laser measuring ensures our filament is held within a .03 tolerance. Final visual inspection for color and quality ensure you are receiving our best product.

Our Facility

Our climate controlled factory ensures dry material throughout the filament making process. Once the filament is spooled, each roll is vacuum sealed with desiccant inside the bag to prevent moisture. More hygroscopic materials go through an additional drying process in both the raw resin and then again once spooled, before being vacuum sealed

Our Process

We use industrial-grade extruders which melt and mix our resins with colorant, which is precisely fed at a consistent rate, via gravimetric color feeders.

Once melted and uniformly mixed, the resin is pushed through a heated die and fed into a warm water bath, which quickly cools the filament.

An industrial filament puller maintains the filament diameter, by speeding up or slowing down, based on readings it receives from the laser measuring head. The laser measuring head not only measures the diameter, but also the ovality, or in our case, lack thereof.

Our winding machines then spool up the filament with a traverse feeder, which ensures an even flat winding. This also ensures that it cannot overlap filament and cause a tangle.

Our finished spools are post-dried in our walk-in oven and then immediately vacuums sealed with a desiccant pack to ensure you receive dry filament.
