What our clients say about us

Quotation marks
logo referentie CEAD Poly Products

With this 3D printer we can work faster, at lower costs and we have less manual labour.

logo referentie CEAD RAPID prototyping

We are now 3D printing molds using 30% short glass fiber-reinforced polypropylene and cutting our labor time by 50%.

logo referentie CEAD Spark makers zone

We are enthusiastic about the CEAD Robot Extruder and make new applications / shapes with it, such as a lampshade, rain barrels, flower pots, and doors of a classic Jeep. Because SPARK Makers Zone is an open lab, (potential) customers of CEAD can come here to print and experiment.

Due to CEADs constructive approach and innovative ideas we always collaboratively come up with the best solutions.

logo referentie CEAD ETH Zurich

We have found the CEAD Robot Extruder to be the perfect tool for our needs. High throughput, high temperature, a wide variety of materials, 24/7 production possibilities, and relatively low weight, make it an ideal extruder for us.

The CEAD printer extends our capabilities towards larger parts, higher fiber contents and a wider range of polymers. The CEAD system was delivered very quickly — from order to installation was only 6 months.

Fiber-reinforced polymer bridges are already well known for having a longer lifetime expectancy with lower life cycle costs compared to steel bridges. What’s new here is the use of a new 3D printing technology, enabling us to print large-scale fiber reinforced thermoplastic parts.

We certainly consider CEAD as a partner. As a composite-company we have less experience with thermoplastics. We discovered CEAD has done much more research on the material than us, and that is one of the reasons why we will keep working together.

We are delighted to show an industrial solution from CEAD for multi-axis composite printing combining Comau’s robotics, CEAD’s Additive Manufacturing and our best in class CNC technology.

We will help you build your production process from start to finish.

1. Proof of Concept

We start working together on the application and make a draft of the business case. Often, the case needs further assessment. This is exactly what the Proof of Concept phase is for: we focus on both the technical and commercial feasibility.

2. Hardware solution

The Proof of Concept gives insights in technical feasibility and the business case. This has allowed us to gain insights in the exact needs, and with the broad range of machines as well as the possibility a for custom machine, the best solution is delivered.

3. Implementation

The hardware solution itself is half of the work. We are eager to help you with the complete implementation from operator training to the design guidelines and integration with other hardware such as CNC milling equipment. We can even supply operators or supply engineering support.

4. Maintenance and service

Our hardware solution in combination with our maintenance service are designed for 10+ years of non-stop operation. We have an elaborate service and maintenance program with solutions to minimize the downtime of your equipment.
