For RAPID + TCT 2021, Thermwood will be live printing high temp autoclave aerospace tooling on our #LSAM Additive Printer 510. On Monday, September 13th we will be printing SABIC LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ AM EC004XXAR1 ULTEM compound, on Tuesday, September 14th, we will be printing TECHMER PM PESU 1810 3DP and on Wednesday, September 15th, we will be printing AIRTECH PEI DAHLTRAM I-350CF. Representatives from the Thermwood Research Laboratory at Purdue University (located in Purdue University's Composites Manufacturing Simulation Center - CSMC) will also be on hand to demonstrate their ADDITVE3D simulation software.
Stop by booth E7628 to see this exciting process in action!
Thermwood Corporation, located in Southern Indiana and established in 1969, offers Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) systems for 3D printing reinforced thermoplastic composite materials for producing large to very large industrial tools, molds, patterns, masters, plugs and fixtures for the aerospace, automotive, boating, foundry and thermoforming industries. The LSAM uses a two-step, near-net shape process which prints slightly larger than the final size, then it is shaped to its exact final size using the CNC router side of the LSAM. Thermwood also offers both three & five axis CNC machining centers ideally suited for the production, fabrication & trimming of wood, plastics, non-ferrous metals, composites and other advanced materials. These applications range from machining patterns and molds/plugs to trimming & machining production products for various industries such as woodworking, automotive, aerospace/aviation and defense industries. Thermwood is a US company with distributors worldwide and provides extensive and complete support, installation, training & ongoing service.
