Strangpresse's Model 19 polymer extruder is designed for pellet-to-print applications. It is rated at 20 lbs/hr. and can be integrated with a robotic arm. According to the company, the extruder offers good melt quality over a full range of outputs, with low fiber breakage, shut-off and drooling control when printing in multi-axis directions. It also provides unit mass-to-output ratio for inertia considerations. 

According to Strangpresse, the use of polymer pellets for additive manufacturing provides economic benefits as bulk pellets are open-sourced and more cost-effective than filament. Pellet-to-print builds also mean that the polymer chemistry remains largely unchained, the company says.
