DXR series

Direct extrusion with industrial robots

In addition to the DX series, WEBER Additive offers a robotic system (DXR) for additive manufacturing.
Here a high-quality WEBER extruder is moved by a precise 6-axis industrial robot.


DXR machines

3D Printing robotic cell

Our DXR systems work with various industrial robots that move our specially developed AE series extruders with the highest precision. They are highly modular and adaptable according to the requirements of our customers.

Your advantages when printing with robots using CAM systems

  • Optimised printing strategies with 6-axis kinematics
  • Variable angle of the print head
  • Printing on already existing parts
  • Force-optimised layer direction

AE series

Our AE series extruders for direct extrusion

Designed for dynamics: light weight, optimised for variable output, with powerful servo motor and compact material feeder.

The right configuration and size of the pellet extruder depends on many factors:

  • Typically required extrusion speed
  • Desired layer and wall thickness
  • Material and material composition

We are able to process a broad range of thermoplastic materials (up to 450°C process temperature) through the
open process recipe system of our machines.

Get in touch with our experts and find your personal machine configuration!

The most important features of our AE series extruders:

  • Controlled via the central machine control
  • Optimal screw geometry for a linear output characteristic
  • Interchangeable nozzle
  • Tempered feeding zone with water cooling


  • Up to 450 °C processing temperature
  • Wear protection solutions for the processing of fibre reinforced materials
  • Workpiece cooling on the extruder
