Large-Format 3D Printing

Large-Scale Thermoset Composite AM System Launched

The Reactive Additive Manufacturing (RAM) system is said to be the world’s first large-scale additive manufacturing system compatible with thermoset resins. 

Why Robots and Additive Manufacturing Go Together

3D printing and robots enable one another. We miss the possibilities of one if we do not consider the other. The combination includes AM for end effectors, robots for 3D printing parts, and different modes of metal and plastic production.

The Promise of Robotic Metal Additive Manufacturing

Addere’s robot-based laser system builds using standard weld wire. The company was spawned from a robot integrator, and that background has been valuable for both overcoming the challenges and perceiving the possibilities of using a robot for metal 3D printing.

Thermwood’s Vertical Layer Printing Turns AM on Its Side

Vertical Layer Printing (VLP) 3D prints layers perpendicular to the floor, extending Z height to the length of the print bed — as long as 40 feet.

How a Prototyping 3D Printer Became a Production 3D Printer
