Thermwood Corporation, located in Southern Indiana and established in 1969, 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 also offers a Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) system for 3D printing reinforced thermoplastic composite materials for producing industrial tooling, molds, patterns, masters, plugs and fixtures for various industries.  The LSAM can perform both the “additive” and “subtractive” functions on the same machine. This approach, called “near net shape”, uses a high volume thermoplastic printer to quickly create a part that is nearly, but not exactly, the final net shape. The “subtractive” function then machines the part to the exact final net shape. In its final form, Thermwood’s system will perform both the “Additive” and “Subtractive” functions on the same machine. Thermwood is a US based company with dealers and distributors worldwide.  In addition to machine manufacturing and software development, Thermwood has a technical service organization that provides support, machine installation, training, retrofits, custom programming and production assistance.

  • Thermwood Corporation has developed a new product for the Additive Manufacturing industry.  The LSAM (Large Scale Additive Manufacturing) system is used for 3D printing reinforced thermoplastic composite materials for producing industrial tooling, molds, patterns, masters, plugs and fixtures for various industries.  The LSAM can perform both the “additive” and “subtractive” functions on the same machine. This approach uses a two-step process, near net shape production process.  The part is first 3D printed layer by layer to slightly larger than the final size.  Then the subtractive function machines the part to the exact final net shape.  This process starts with our LSAM Print 3D software which operates within Mastercam.  The LSAM can grow a part 10ft Wide by 10ft Long (Up to 100ft Long) by 5ft Tall.  The LSAM can print anywhere from 100 .lbs/hour up to 500 .lbs/hour depending on which Melt Core is used.
