Attendees will get a closer look at the Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) machine from Cincinnati Incorporated (CI) during Fabtech, happening November 9-12 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. The machine, known for printing a full-sized car at IMTS 2014, will be on display in booth N-9000.

The large-scale additive machine uses the chassis, drives and control of CI’s laser cutting system as the base, and extrudes hot thermoplastic to build parts, layer-by-layer. The machine, developed as part of a cooperative research and development agreement between CI and Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL), introduces new manufacturing capabilities to a range of industries including automotive, aerospace, marine, furniture and much more. SABIC Innovative Plastics purchased the first BAAM machine and provided the carbon fiber ABS plastic for the IMTS car and will be providing material for BAAM at the Fabtech show.
