CFAM Prime: dedicated production system with thermoplastic composite materials

CFAM Prime

The CFAM Prime is especially engineered to run production. The machine focuses on printing speed and reliability. Ideal for efficient production of large parts or multiple parts in one production run. Complete turn key machines, ready to start printing your parts immediately. The CFAM Prime is the first 3D printer using CFAM technology. The patented printing head, which combines the continuous fibre with the melted thermoplastics, is distinctive from other continuous fibre 3D printing technologies.

Features

  • Pellet extrusion
  • Continuous fibres
  • Virtually all thermoplastics
  • Build volume of 4m x 2m x 1.5m
  • Fully enclosed environment
  • Average output of 15 kg/hr
  • Siemens Sinumerik

Speed

Printing with the CFAM Prime is faster than conventional production. There are shorter lead times for large complex products, and it is possible to print multiple parts on the print bed. CFAM technology enables complex geometry composite part manufacturing on an industrial level.

Dedicated Production

Especially developed for industrial use, the CFAM Prime is able to operate 24 hours a day without operator interference. The print bed also allows for easy and quick removal of the printed object and resume production.

Continuous Fibre Additive Manufacturing

This 3D printing technology adds continuous fibres to the extruder polymers at high speed. Standard granules are reinforced with pre-impregnated continuous glass or carbon fibres for optimal strength and stiffness of the material.
