3D printing company Impossible Objects, takes its CBAM composite 3D printing process to the next level with the announcement of the CBAM 25 machine, which will be unveiled at the Rapid +TCT tradeshow in Chicago. It prints fifteen times faster than the fastest competition, the manufacturer claims.
Commercially available in early 2024, the CBAM 25 from Impossible Objects will bring 3D printing to volume manufacturing, breaking the 3D printing speed barrier while using advanced materials for superior mechanical properties and tolerances. According to the company, the new 3D printer prints parts fifteen times faster than the nearest competitor with the superior material properties demanded for industrial-grade end-use parts.
The CBAM 25 high-performance composite materials enable engineers to design stronger, lighter and more durable parts. Most notably, the Carbon Fiber PEEK material set achieves very high chemical and temperature resistance, and mechanical properties superior to most engineering plastics. Carbon Fiber PEEK parts are a suitable alternative for aluminum, tooling, spares, repairs and end-use parts. Impossible Objects is currently producing and selling parts in untapped 3D markets such as electronic tooling and for a broad range of applications, including aerospace, defense, and transportation industries. It is also replacing CNC machining with greater geometric freedom.
Impossible Objects’ CEO, Steve Hoover, emphasises the importance of production speed with the new CBAM 25: “With a fifteen times speed improvement over existing 3D printers our new CBAM 25 completes the transition of 3D printing from its roots in prototyping to the heartland of manufacturing. It’s hard to actually imagine what fifteen times faster means. For a comparison, this is also the speed difference between the fastest human running the mile and a Formula race car in a straight away. That’s the same difference that our new CBAM 25 has versus prior technologies. We believe that this is a huge-step forward not only for our company, but also our industry, as it moves 3D printing into volume manufacturing.”
