MMS AUGUST 2018 270 IMTS 2018 Additive Manufacturing AM Machine Approach Replaces Conventional Manufacturing Impossible Objects' Model One additive manufactur- ing machine works with composite materials using a process specifically designed for volume production of functional parts at scale. This process is intended as a replacement of conventional manufacturing methods. The machine uses an approach that relies on high- speed 2D printing methods and long-fiber, reinforced sheets of carbon, Kevlar or fiberglass. The sheets are fused with Nylon 12, PEEK and other material combina- tions. The process is said to deliver strong, lightweight, functional parts at scale. | Impossible Objects Inc. | West, Level 3 & Annex, Booth 431606 Metal 3D Printer Minimizes Postprocessing Big Systems displays Mark- forged's Metal X is designed to avoid the safety risks of powder-based printers and to be easily installed on shop floors. Parts are printed with honeycomb interiors to save weight without com- promising strength, with good surface finish said to minimize postprocessing. | Big Systems | West, Level 3 & Annex, Booth 432408 SLM Solutions NA, Inc.
