Composite-Based Additive Manufacturing (â€œCBAMâ€)
Impossible Objects LLC, IL, United States
A new additive manufacturing technology for high-performing, fiber-reinforced composite (carbon, aramid, glass) parts and tooling. Advantages include faster build speed (projected to near injection molding), higher part strength (2-10 times greater than other 3DP technologies and increasing), and a large palette of usable materials (without needing specially formulated polymers).
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Commercial Product
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: An entirely new additive manufacturing process for lightweight composite parts that provides: (1) faster build speeds than other 3D printing technologies and traditional composites manufacturing; (2) significantly better material properties versus other 3D printing technologies (2x-10x improved); and (3) a wider range of usable materials without requiring special formulations.
Organization Type: Early-stage Startup (Seed)
