Ten times larger, 20 times cheaper and 200 times faster than similar polymer additive manufacturing technologies, Cincinnati Incorporated's Big Area Additive Manufacturing
(BAAM-CI), co-developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, enables components of arbitrary geometry to be 3-D printed.
and the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, have enlarged their original creation, the Big Area Additive Manufacturing
, or BAAM, machine, which has a build volume of 6 x 13 x 3 feet and prints as much as 40 pounds per hour.
The big area additive manufacturing
prototype printed all of the major car components with 1,100 pounds of carbon fiber reinforced ABS.
"Visitors will get a first-hand look at the future of additive manufacturing and its possibilities to transform the industry with our Big Area Additive Manufacturing
(BAAM) machine running SABIC material and printing polymer components 200-500 times faster and 10 times larger than today's additive manufacturing machines.
For Process/Prototyping we presented the Editor's Choice Award to Cincinnati Incorporated and Oak Ridge National Laboratory for their Big Area Additive Manufacturing
Sabic was also part of the Big Area Additive Manufacturing
(BAAM) printer project which yielded the 3D printed Strati car.
