Ohio-based metallic fabrication gear producer Cincinnati Integrated has introduced it should showcase its Small Space Additive Manufacturing (SAAM) system at EASTEC 2019 in West Springfield, Massachusetts. The SAAM system from Cincinnati Integrated is a 3D printer using FFF know-how, designed to function alongside the corporate’s Large Space Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) and Medium Space Additive Manufacturing (MAAM) programs.
EASTEC is a producing commerce present devoted to superior manufacturing know-how within the Northeastern United States in a wide range of industries, resembling aerospace, medical units, automotive, industrial gear and protection.

Meet BAAM, MAAM and SAAM
Cincinnati Integrated’s BAAM and MAAM programs are industrial sized machines created with the intention of bringing some great benefits of 3D printing to manufacturing manufacturing. The programs are designed to supply cost-effective strategies of manufacturing giant components rapidly with 3D printing, utilizing an open structure for materials distributors.
The SAAM was developed by Cincinnati Integrated particularly as a complement to the BAAM and MAAM machines. Whereas the BAAM and MAAM are targeted on full-scale manufacturing, the SAAM is a smaller machine targeted on prototyping components and concepts earlier than getting used on the bigger machines. A key function of the SAAM system is its capacity to hold out 3D prints repeatedly and unattended, utilizing the corporate’s Automated Ejection System know-how. Cincinnati Integrated additionally supply an upgraded model of the SAAM, the SAAM HT, which offers the extra capacity of 3D printing in ULTEM, PEEK, polycarbonate or different thermoplastics as much as 500°C, permitting for the manufacturing of stronger components.
You’ll be capable of see the SAAM system from Cincinnati Integrated in motion at EASTEC 2019 from 14th Could by to the 16th Could 2019, in Sales space #1844.
Massive 3D printing with BAAM
Because of the large-scale 3D printing potential of the SAAM’s larger counterpart, the BAAM from Cincinnati Integrated, developed in partnership with Oak Ridge Nationwide Laboratory (ORNL), has been used for a wide range of purposes with the intention to create distinctive, giant 3D printed components.
Beforehand, the BAAM system was featured within the Guinness World Data in 2016 for producing the largest 3D printed half on the planet. Native Motors, a floor mobility firm, has used the capabilities of BAAM know-how the 3D print a whole automobile generally known as the Strati in 44 hours again in 2014. The system has additionally been utlized to 3D print the hull of a submarine for the U.S. Navy in 2017.
Not too long ago nonetheless, BAAM has been employed to assist run the 2019 Flying Pig Marathon, a charity occasion established by non-profit group Cincinnati Marathon, Inc. The BAAM 3D printer was used to provide a “13.1” signal (representing half the 26.2 miles of the marathon) for the charity run, which Cincinnati Integrated in sponsoring.
