Pilot project: Investigate the feasibility of a large scale 3D printing project together with CEAD

The implementation of large scale 3D printing often enables groundbreaking improvements of production processes. Since the technology behind industrial 3D printing is being improved and updated constantly, the options and benefits of this solution could be uncertain when applied to specific business cases. Before investing in a solution for 3D printing, our customers would like to know whether a project is commercially and [...]

Selecting the right large scale additive manufacturing solution for your company

The complete package of CEAD solutions for industrial 3D printing consists of seemingly similar products. However, the unique characteristics of our three types of large scale 3D printers ensure that the various solutions fit distinct applications. This blog provides insight into the selection between our robot extruders, robot based solutions and gantry based solutions for large scale 3D printing by highlighting their specifications. [...]

Thermoplastic pellets for large scale 3d printing explained

CEAD’s large scale 3D printing technology uses thermoplastics. Thermoplastics are plastics that, after applying a specific heat, melt and can be reformed. The thermoplastic material for large scale 3D printing comes in “pellets” or also called “granules”. These pellets typically have somewhat the same shape. However, how the pellets are manufactured determines largely how they look and whether they can be processed. By [...]

The benefits and weaknesses of 3 commonly used thermoplastic materials for large scale 3D printing

CEAD’s large scale 3D printing technology uses thermoplastics. Thermoplastics are plastics that, after applying a specific heat, melt and can be reformed. These thermoplastics are used to a great extent in other processes such as injection molding, plastic extrusion, rotational molding, vacuum forming and in small scale printing such as FDM (extrusion based process) and SLS (laser Sintering process). In this blog we [...]

CEAD launches a new model of the Robot Extruder: the E50

More than two years ago, the first robot extruders of CEAD were installed in the Netherlands. That first model, the E25, is a custom designed, high-temperature stand alone print head dedicated for large scale 3D printing with a maximum output of 12 kg/hr .The E25 is currently installed world wide: many universities such as ETH Zurich, University of Stuttgart and Tampere University integrated the [...]

Two problem solving insights to prevent deformation while large scale 3D printing

CEAD’s large scale 3D printing technology uses thermoplastics. Thermoplastics are plastics that, after applying a specific heat, melt and can be reformed. These thermoplastics are used to a great extent in other processes such as injection moulding, plastic extrusion, rotational moulding, vacuum forming and in small scale printing such as FDM (extrusion based process) and SLS (laser Sintering process). For larger parts, thermoplastics [...]

How thermoplastics increase sustainability in composite production

More and more companies are focusing on sustainability and circularity. In the composite production branche, this equals a shift from the use of thermoset materials to thermoplastic materials. Thermoplastic materials bring benefits for both the environment and your company, and are more sustainable and circulair than other materials. Read on to find out more about the research and what the benefits are for [...]
