THERMWOOD LAUNCHES NEW 3D MANUFACTURING PROGRAM

Thermwood has launched a new 3D Additive Manufacturing System that is capable of creating large carbon graphite reinforced composite thermoplastic components.

The new system utilises a near net shape approach which is used to heat, melt and deposit, or “print”, carbon graphite filled thermoplastic material.

This process creates a structure that is almost identical to the final shape.

The new system will be based off Thermwood’s, semi-enclosed, high wall gantry machine, Model 77, offering sizes up to about 18m long.

With the addition of the second gantry, both the additive and the Subtractive process can be preformed on the same machine, with the Subtractive gantry offered as an option, as some companies may only require the additive machinery.

Nearing completion, Thermwood’s initial development machine can create parts up to approximately 3 x 3 x 1.5m high and is fitted with a 20HP, 1¾ inch diameter, 24-1 L/D extruder and support equipment capable of processing over 100 pounds of material per hour.

Thermwood CNC routers are available from Flecknoe, which manufactures and distributes a large range of machinery and tools for all aspects of thermoforming, plastic fabrication, composite fabrication, pattern making, and nested base manufacturing.
