BAAM – BIG AREA ADDITIVE MAUFACTURING

BAAM technology allows creating 3D large-scale products in a matter of hours.

BAAM (Big Area Additive Manufacturing) is an industrial sized, additive machine. The machine uses the proven design and technology from our laser platform, including the machine frame, motion system, and control, and has been adapted with an extruder and feeding system. BAAM was designed to allow 3-D printing to be used for production manufacturing. The size and speed allow large parts to be made quickly. The ability to use commodity thermoplastic materials means that the cost per part will be reasonable. By designing a system with an open architecture for material vendors, material costs will be kept lower and with more options.
