Solutions for Additive Manufacturing - Solutions for Additive Manufacturing - CMS Kreator

Hybrid system for additive manufacturing and milling

CMS Advanced Materials Technology, leader in CNC machines for composite processing, started in 2018, in cooperation with the prestigious german Fraunhofer Institut, to develop an original LFAM (Large Format Additive Manufacturing) solution, for improving the competitiveness of composite and other industries.

The Additive Manufacturing technology adopted is Screw Extrusion Additive Manufacturing (SEAM) 

  • Thermoplastic polymer, in granulated form is the material used.
  • The polymer is almost always reinforced (discontinuous fibres of carbon or glass) and the reinforcement is inside the granules.
  • The extrusion is done by a single screw extruder that melts the granules.
  • The extruder is moved by the tool machine’s axes.
  • The melted polymer exiting the extruder is deposited in layers that plasticize and form a single piece.
Advantages

Unique solution, designed to integrate completely a machine tool and a large format 3D printer.

Material saving, compared to current manufacturing technologies: more than 5.

Up to 5 times less material than competitors, to print the same part.

Less subparts, less manufacturing timesless costs than large sized FDM.
