3devo will join the hundreds of companies bringing with it’s latest addition to it’s filament ecosystem, the GP20 Plastic Shredder Hybrid. The past year and a half has been busy at 3devo. 3devo has collected all the knowledge gained from the past four years of experience with the previous SHR3D IT plastic shredder, and created a smart 2-in-1 shredder and granulator. With numerous upgrades and improvements, next to autonomous settings, additional elements improved include: modular design, intelligent settings, and customizable components. The AIRID polymer dryerPrecision and Composer Filament makers, and of course the shredder, have all gone through major improvements.

What Has Changed Since 2019?

So apart from introducing a new machine to our line up, what else is different? Firstly we have grown tremendously, adding 10 valuable employees to our team this year alone, and gaining more knowledge through that. We have become better at understanding the various materials in the market and those our customers use. Furthermore, we are more committed to sustainability within our products than ever. One of our main priorities is making our solutions as eco-friendly as possible, something we are achieving through our complete circular solution for filament extrusion. 

Don’t believe us? Come see for yourself as you can throw plastic bottles and caps into our GP20 Shredder Hybrid and watch how you can make usable filament from the regrinds!
