Did you know.... 

Once the LSAM Print 3D melt profile is is developed, it may be shared among all LSAM LFAM Large Scale Additive Manufacturing systems?
 
Commonality in components and advanced manufacturing practices enable this seamless transition.
 
This ability also makes LSAM material agnostic. LSAM owners are free to use ๐—”๐—ก๐—ฌ qualified 3D print material.
 
LSAM owners may also develop their own melt profiles by working directly with 3D polymer suppliers.
 
By the way - This makes 30 (THIRTY) qualified 3D printing polymers that are ready to run on LSAM!
 
How many can you run on your 3D printer?

About the LSAM Additive Printer

The LSAM Additive Printer systems are single gantry, moving table configurations and are available in two table sizes, 5โ€™x5โ€™ and 5โ€™x10โ€™. The 5โ€™x10โ€™ table is available in two configurations, 5โ€™ wide with 10โ€™ of front to back motion and 10โ€™ wide with 5โ€™ of front to back motion. Choice of configuration depends on several factors, fitting it existing factory floor space is one factor.

The specially designed, highly rigid tab and slot, structural steel gantry also incorporates a fume extraction system that pulls print fumes through specially designed activated charcoal filters to remove them and โ€œsweetenโ€ the air.

LSAM additive Printers use the exact same print head mechanism as all the other, including the largest LSAM Systems which means that they produce the same amazing print quality that has made LSAM the leader in large scale additive printing. They also use the same highly advanced Ultra 6 control with all its exclusive, patented print features and capability.

The systems come standard with a single hopper polymer dryer for applications that donโ€™t change print material very often. For installations that print a wider variety of materials, a dual hopper dryer is available as an option.

An enclosure that surrounds the machine is also available. The machine with the full enclosure can also be built to meet European CE standards.
