In 2018, CMS, a leader in industrial CNC machines for composite processing, began a collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute, to develop an original LFAM solution, for improving the competitiveness of composite and their applications across various industries. Now the company is ready to present the result of that collaboration, the Kreator hybrid LFAM composites system.

CMS presents Kreator hybrid LFAM system Featuring a patented single screw extruder, which was designed for 3D printing using different materials, the current model has a maximum mass flow of 7 Kg/h, with a more powerful 20 Kg/h model on the way. Like other large-format hybrid systems, the Kreator was designed to integrate a machine tool and a large format 3D printer in one system, and the company assures significant materials savings compared to current manufacturing technologies, using up to 5 times less material than competitors, to print the same part.

CMS (acronym of Costruzioni Macchine Speciali) was established in 1969 from the sharp strategic vision of its founder: its mission was to offer customized and cutting-edge solutions, based on the deep knowledge of the customer’s manufacturing process. Today CMS SpA manufactures CNC machines and systems for advanced materials (composite, carbon fiber, aluminum, light alloys), plastic, glass, stone and metals processing.

Substantial investments in research and development have allowed the brand to always be at the forefront of cutting-edge design, with machines that ensure best-in-class performance in terms of accuracy, speed of execution, and reliability; meeting the needs of customers operating in the most demanding divisions. Since the early 2000s, CMS Advanced Materials Technology has established itself as a technology partner in areas of excellence such as aerospace, aviation, automotive, race boating, Formula 1, and some of the most advanced railway industry companies.
