Composite Based Additive Manufacturing (CBAM)

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

CBAM – delivers stronger parts, at faster speeds and from a wider range of materials. CBAM can replace expensive, time-consuming conventional techniques like machining, tooling, and injection molding, while offering greater geometric complexity.

CBAM’s completely new approach to 3D printing makes parts from fiber-reinforced composites, such as carbon, Kevlar and glass fiber fabrics bonded with thermoplastic matrix materials, ranging from nylon/ polyamide to polyethylene, PEEK, and more.These strong, lightweight composite parts are in high demand, saving energy, reducing environmental impact, and enhancing user experiences. CBAM makes functional parts and tools that have enormous advantage in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, defense, athletics, industrial, and medical device industries.

How CBAM Works

Mechanical Properties

CBAM material is up to nearly 10x stronger. CBAM material has the highest tensile modulus, while twice as strong as other material with closest modulus.

Tensile Strength (psi)
