- New 3D printer prints parts fifteen times faster than the nearest competitor with the superior material properties demanded for industrial-grade end-use parts
Impossible Objects, announces the CBAM 25 composite 3D printer, which will be unveiled at the RAPID +TCT tradeshow in Chicago next month, taking its revolutionary CBAM composite process to the next level. The CBAM 25 brings 3D printing into mass production by printing fifteen times faster than the competition.
The CBAM 25 will be commercially available in early 2024, breaking the 3D printing speed barrier while using advanced materials for superior mechanical properties and tolerances.
“The world is made out of things and with the CBAM 25 we are changing the way they are made. The CBAM 25 is the world’s fastest printer, and we are entering a new era of 3D printing with nearly unlimited material options at the speed of true mass production. This is a Moore’s law moment for 3D printing, and this is just the first step.”– Robert Swartz, Founder and Chairman of the Board at Impossible Objects
CBAM 25 Composite 3D Printer
Engineers can design stronger, lighter, and more durable parts using the CBAM 25 high-performance composite materials. Most notably, the Carbon Fibre PEEK material set outperforms most engineering plastics in terms of chemical and temperature resistance, as well as mechanical properties. Carbon Fibre PEEK parts are an excellent replacement for aluminium, tooling, spares, repairs, and end-of-life parts.
Impossible Objects is currently manufacturing and selling parts in untapped 3D markets such as electronic tooling and for a wide range of applications such as aerospace, defence, and transportation. It is also replacing CNC machining by providing more geometric freedom.
Impossible Objects’ CEO, Steve Hoover, emphasizes 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.”
About Impossible Objects: Impossible Objects, a 3D printer and materials company, was founded on the belief that advances in materials science would allow 3D printing to revolutionise the world in the same way that computers and the internet have revolutionised the way we live, work, and play.
