CEAD officially launches industrial-scale continuous fiber CFAM Prime 3D printer

Some 3D printing stories take place over extended periods, such as the month-long 3D printing of a bridge . Other times, research and development can take even longer. In those cases, we try to keep readers apprised of major developments as they occur. Today, we bring updates on the CEAD large-scale CFAM Prime 3D printer designed for shipbuilding, infrastructure work, and industrial projects. CFAM stands for Continuous Fiber Additive Manufacturing and involves infusing continuous strands of carbon fiber or glass into 3D printed thermoplastics. After settling into their new Delft location and printing various materials for a couple months, CEAD hosted an event to officially launch and show off the capabilities of the CFAM Prime. They 3D printed parts with their continuous fiber and with short fibers so attendees could feel the mechanical properties differences between them. There was also a live demonstration of a CFAM Prime adding a […]
