KraussMaffei has launched its latest product, the powerPrint large-scale 3D printer, initially unveiled at the K trade show. The powerPrint is designed to produce products up to a volume of ten cubic meters. It is currently available for purchase and also through a print-on-demand service provided by KraussMaffei.

The powerPrint has been successfully tested with a wide variety of fiber-reinforced and compounded materials. According to Rolf Mack, Vice President of Additive Manufacturing at KraussMaffei, the powerPrint is now ready to produce custom parts directly at customer facilities while maintaining industry and quality standards.

The powerPrint uses granulated thermoplastics and extruder-based pressure buildup, ranging from 2 to 20mm nozzle areas, enabling cost-effective production. With an output rate of up to 30kg/h, it can produce components of up to 2m x 2.5m x 2m, independently, at a temperature of up to 350°C.

This large-scale printer is intended for industries requiring large-format objects with consistently high product quality, such as tool and mold makers, packaging and logistics, and the automotive industry.

KraussMaffei’s print-on-demand service allows businesses to evaluate the powerPrint. With this service, applications are designed, printed, and post-processed according to customer requirements.

According to VoxelMatters’ Polymer AM Market Opportunities and Trends 2020-2030, LFAM (large format additive manufacturing) 3D printing hardware sales alone will generate over $1.1 billion by 2030, up from about $70 million in 2022.
