We recycle plastic waste into new 3D printing filament

Waste is not an end product

Known from:

The vision of QiTech

3D printing & sustainability associations
Recycled filament from industrial waste

We produce recycled filament from industrial waste - with our own filament production facility in Darmstadt.

Buy filament in our store

Reusable filament spools made from recycled plastic

We produce reusable filament spools from recycled plastic lids.
So you only need one spool, which you can refill again and again.

Machines for filament production

We have built all the machines for filament production ourselves and also sell them to leading universities and companies for filament recycling research worldwide.

Shred the plastic

With the Jarvis Shredder we have developed a powerful shredder for high-quality & uniform granulate. It is available in 2 versions: a smaller version for smaller workspaces and laboratories and a larger version with more power and more volume.

Granulate extrusion

In our Extruder laboratory, we have combined all of our experience in plastics processing from recent years. Special features include the pressure sensor and the cloud connection, which allows all further process steps (cooling, diameter regulation and winding) to be monitored and adjusted in an app.

Cooling filament

The Jarvis Airpath is our easy-to-use cooling unit that ensures an consistent temperature of the filament for spooling. This temperature is very crucial: filament that is too hot can stick together on the spool and filament that is too cold may not bend enough to fit tightly.

Measure the diameter

The JARVIS DRE is our solution for monitoring the filament diameter during production. The right diameter is elementary for high-quality prints and thanks to the modular design, our measuring unit is compatible with almost every extrusion line.

Winding filament onto spools

With our Pro Winder you can easily wind or rewind filament. The intelligent speed control detects whether the filament is under tension and adjusts the winding speed based on this. So your filament rolls are always perfectly wound after production.

Use recycled filament

We also offer the recycled filament as a refill or with our reusable spools made from bottle caps.

We use production waste from large factories in the region as a basis and then recycle it into new filament using our own machines.

Buy our filament

We deliver our machines personally!

We deliver our filament line personally to you, help with the set-up and do a test run on site together with the responsible persons!

The beginnings of QiTech

QiTech originally started as a student project.

We wanted to make our own filament for our 3D printers and built small machines for this in the garage.

All of a sudden, people wrote to us and wanted to buy our machines. So we started QiTech Industries and started mass producing our machines.

Renting a 2500m² REWE store as an 18-year-old

With time and the progress made since then, QiTech Industries has developed into much more of a real company than just a small student project.

Ever since we realised that our developments were actually needed, we have continued to scale up more and more.
And after delivering over 70 machines to 14 different countries, we moved into an empty REWE building in Oppenheim, Germany.

Our new factory building in Darmstadt

We have now moved to our new factory building in Darmstadt. In the middle of the Schenk Industrial Park and 10 minutes from the University, we are now building and developing our 3D printing filament production equipment.

Our goal: Nothing less than to build the best machines in the world to help further advance the manufacturing and research of 3D printing filaments.
