Testimonials

It is the best tool I have been waiting for
I am very happy to use I-Extruder with my electrical hobby life. Usability of I-Extruder is best than the other competing products.

Most strong point is that possible to supply small amount of solder onto small PAD. Furthermore、it is Small, light, stable, quiet, multi function, Reasonable price.

Thank you Artline team.
Well made product that fills an old gap in the maker / hobby market
Received the i-Extruder pack last week. It was well packed with some extras already included in the base package (pick and place piston and cups). The tool was also smaller than expected. This is good news, because it makes it better suited to use under a microscope. First setup was easy, but it takes some time to find the optimal settings for the material used. It's a good idea to use the paste sold (for a reasonable price) by the designers because setup other solder paste was a bit of a hit and miss. Also the offered paste comes pre-filled in a compatible dispenser which also saves the filling chore. After finding the optimal settings the operation is pretty straight forward, altough people with large(r) hand or fingers would benefit from getting a foot pedal as the dispensing buttons are close together. All in all a good product for an affordable price that smartly fills a gap in the hobby market.
Best SMD tool on my bench.
The prospect of dabbing solder paste onto my boards with a toothpick was too much to bear, so I jumped at this Kickstarter.
Ten minutes playing with it and I was an old hand. Programming this thing is a breeze, and it feels solid in the hand with good ergonomics. I recommend the foot pedal. It allows you to lay down a really precise dab of paste right where you want it.
Solder paste placement is fast! You can do a small board in a few minutes with no mess at all. The pick and place lets you populate your board fast.
There is no downside with this product. It is quiet and feels good in the hand. There is no compressor noise since it uses a stepper motor for the drive.
This is the handiest SMD tool on my bench. If you are making your own boards then this is the must-have for your workplace, at home or on the job. Period.
That's a real "Made In France" quality product
That's a real "Made In France" quality product

I just received my I-Extruder pack with XYZ aluminum stand yesterday and I was very surprised, since I hadn't expected such a great quality of manufacturing !
That's a real "Made In France" quality, like it used to be many years ago.
Good job guys !

Impressive Product
I discovered I-Extruder via Kickstarter and was really impressed with how well designed and thought out the product was. Communication throughout the campaign was impeccable. There have been 27 updates to date, and each one provided additional information about the status of build process. The team also handled a small customer service issue for me, which was the result of a mistake I made when completing a form. It was resolved quickly and politely.

I just recently received the finished product, and I'm very impressed with its build quality and packaging. I don't do much surface mount soldering, so I'm brainstorming the perfect project to give it a more thorough test.

Hands down, one of the best Kickstarter campaigns that I've supported.
Perfect for veterinary medicine
I raise hampsters for a living and being the horny bastards they are I have to deal with their STDs on a regular basis. Using topical medicines is hard because their private parts are so sensitive and they'll claw and bite you so much so getting the exact right amount applied to their willies/coochies is an absolute must. I'm happy to say that using the I-Extruder I can handle these buggers with ease now. I don't have to look for hamster-sized condoms anymore.
Perfect Product
I really love this new tool.
Got my I-Extruder via Kickstarter.
Thank you very much, I-Extruder team.
Joy
What can i say, this tool beats my expectations. I have been using it for dispensing glue for fabricating acylic products, and it has completly revolutionalised the gluing process, no more pools of glue that suddenly happen when giving to much pressure to the syringe, which ruin the athetics of the finished product. No more reject products!!, YET :)
Well made...
I am very impressed with the quality of manufacture. Precision dies, good plastic selection, and quality machined parts. I expect to be using this very useful tool for many years. The only criticism is the size of the display and menu buttons. Ok for young guys with sharp eyes and skinny fingers but not for old workshop hacks with stubby digits.
I love things that are well made
I-Extruder dispenser is very well engineered and the build quality is simply amazing.
it's a real time-saver for PCB prototyping. The plastic tapered tips that comes with it , are easy to use for solder paste dispensing. I've already used i-extruder for 0805 and 0603 components with perfect results.
Very good product, i highly recommend it !
