Composite printing company Impossible Objects has announced that it will present its latest innovation, the CBAM 25 press, at the RAPID + TCT trade show in Chicago next month.
The CBAM 25 is fifteen times faster than the closest competitor, making it possible to use 3D printing in mass production. The high-performance composite materials used in CBAM 25 allow engineers to design stronger, lighter and more durable parts, such as those needed in the aerospace, defense and transportation industries.
In particular, the carbon fiber PEEK suite of materials has superior mechanical properties and chemical and temperature resistance, making it an ideal alternative to aluminum for tools, spares, repair and end-use parts.
“With a fifteen-fold speed improvement over existing 3D printers, our new CBAM 25 completes the transition of 3D printing from its roots in prototyping to the heart of manufacturing,” said Steeve Hoover, CEO of Impossible. Objects.
“It’s hard to really imagine what fifteen times faster means. For comparison, this is also the speed difference between the fastest human running the mile and a Formula racing car on a straightaway. That is the same difference that our new CBAM 25 has compared to previous technologies. We believe this is a huge step forward not only for our company, but also for our industry as it brings 3D printing to volume manufacturing.”
The development of the CBAM 25 represents a significant step forward for Impossible Objects and the industry as a whole as it moves towards the goal of true mass production speeds in 3D printing.
