Impossible Objects, a 3D printer and materials company, will unveil the new CBAM 25 machine at RAPID +TCT, in Chicago. The CBAM 25 reportedly prints 15x faster than the fastest competition – further enabling 3D printing to reach mass production. The printer will be commercially available in early 2024, and uses advanced materials for superior mechanical properties and tolerances.

“The world is made out of things and with the CBAM 25 we are changing the way they are made,” said Robert Swartz, Founder and Chairman of the Board at Impossible Objects. “The CBAM 25 is the world’s fastest printer and we are entering a new era of 3D printing with nearly unlimited material options at the speed of true mass production. This is a Moore’s law moment for 3D printing and this is just the first step.”

The CBAM 25 high-performance composite materials enable engineers to design stronger, lighter, and more durable parts. Most notably, the Carbon Fiber PEEK material set achieves very high chemical and temperature resistance, and mechanical properties superior to most engineering plastics. Carbon Fiber PEEK parts are a suitable alternative for aluminum, tooling, spares, repairs, and end-use parts. Impossible Objects is currently producing and selling parts in untapped 3D markets such as electronic tooling, and for a broad range of applications, including aerospace, defense, and transportation industries.

“With a fifteen times speed improvement over existing 3D printers, our new CBAM 25 completes the transition of 3D printing from its roots in prototyping to the heartland of manufacturing. It’s hard to actually imagine what fifteen times faster means. For a comparison, this is also the speed difference between the fastest human running the mile and a Formula race car in a straight away. That’s the same difference that our new CBAM 25 has versus prior technologies. We believe that this is a huge step forward not only for our company, but also our industry, as it moves 3D printing into volume manufacturing,” said Steve Hoover, CEO of Impossible Objects.
