Filament Spools: Packaging-Friendly and Sustainable Solutions

Axjo's filament spools are made from 100% recycled plastic.

A filament spool should be packaging-friendly to ensure the filament is wound up neatly, resulting in sleek and functional packaging for the product. At Axjo, we have spent many years developing and fine-tuning filament spools that are not only functional for sensitive filament but also user-friendly and compatible with winding machines, as well as being sustainable in several ways.


Sustainability in Multiple Ways

How can a spool be sustainable in several ways? Axjo filament spools are made from 100% recycled material. This means the material has already had a previous life, and after recycling, it is compounded in our in-house lab to become technically stable recycled material for manufacturing new filament spools. Our products made from our recycled material have up to 78% lower climate impact compared to those made from new materials.


The Case for Plastic Filament Spools

Why use plastic filament spools when there are other environmentally friendly alternatives? Products made from recycled plastic material that are used, recycled, and reused multiple times have a lower CO2 footprint than equivalent products made from other materials. At Axjo, we promote reuse by upcycling materials to create products with the lowest possible environmental impact. In our Swedish production facility, 95% of our products are made from 100% recycled material, and in our USA facility, we exclusively manufacture using 100% recycled material. With our in-house expertise, we repurpose plastic that would otherwise burden other companies, giving it new life in products designed with sustainability in mind. 


Circulate solutions today and tomorrow

An important complement to our production and products is our offering of various circular solutions. Currently, we provide circular solutions in Sweden and Finland for our cable drums, reels, and spools, including those manufactured by our competitors. We are continually exploring new opportunities and are eager to develop a simple recycling system for filament spools. For now, you can recycle your filament spool at a regular plastic recycling station. However, keep an eye on our website as we are constantly working to develop new circular solutions.
