Thermwood will be LIVE printing end product furniture from SABIC’s LNP™ ELCRIN™ WF006NiQ resin, a 30 percent glass-fiber PBT material on an LSAM Additive Printer 510 LIVE at RAPID + TCT 2023 in Chicago, IL May 2nd-4th, Booth #2148. This material contains a 25 percent loading of chemically upcycled post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) water bottles. LSAM Research Laboratory at Purdue ADDITIVE3D Software will be on display as well, with Purdue representatives on site for demonstrations. This promises to be an exciting demonstration of the LSAM Additive Printer Large Scale Additive System. The LSAM Additive Printer features a single fixed gantry, 5’x10’ moving table, 4’ maximum print height and a maximum print temperature of 450°.
The LSAM Additive Printer systems are single gantry, moving table configurations and are available in two table sizes, 5’x5’ and 5’x10’. The 5’x10’ table is available in two configurations, 5’ wide with 10’ of front to back motion and 10’ wide with 5’ of front to back motion. Choice of configuration depends on several factors, fitting it existing factory floor space is one factor.
The specially designed, highly rigid tab and slot, structural steel gantry also incorporates a fume extraction system that pulls print fumes through specially designed activated charcoal filters to remove them and “sweeten” the air.
LSAM additive Printers use the exact same print head mechanism as all the others, including the largest LSAM Systems which means that they produce the same amazing print quality that has made LSAM the leader in large scale additive printing. They also use the same highly advanced Ultra 6 control with all its exclusive, patented print features and capability.
The systems come standard with a single hopper polymer dryer for applications that don’t change print material very often. For installations that print a wider variety of materials, a dual hopper dryer is available as an option.
An enclosure that surrounds the machine is also available. The machine with the full enclosure can also be built to meet European CE standards.
This promises to be an exciting demonstration of the LSAM Additive Printer Large Scale Additive System in Booth #2418.
