Composite-Based Additive Manufacturing (CBAM): What It Is, And How The Process Is Enabling Amazing New Material Combinations (3D Printing USA 2018)

Eric Povitz, Vice President of Sales
Impossible Objects
United States

Presentation Summary

IO has developed an entirely new approach to additive manufacturing called CBAM or composite-based additive manufacturing. This presentation will briefly explain how the process works and introduce you to a matrix of high-performance material possibilities that can be used, such as carbon fiber or fiber glass paired with PEEK, nylon or TPU, among other combinations. Learn how it's possible to mix and match fiber types that are strong or hard or tough or flexible or conductive or non-conductive, with polymers that are temperature resistant, chemically resistant or elastic, to achieve desired material properties, performance characteristics and costs. Come see why IO is one of the fastest emerging technologies in additive manufacturing.

Speaker Biography (Eric Povitz)

Eric Povitz is the vice president of sales at Impossible Objects, and is highly successful implementing strategies that drive new business growth. He has previously held positions with companies such as 3M, Stratasys, Carbon, and Tennant Company working on new and innovative ways to unlock value for their client partners. Eric understands that additive technologies can vary wildly and that one technology does not fit every application. He has used this knowledge to help large and small companies from around the world develop their own additive strategies that are unique to their specific industries and applications.

Company Profile (Impossible Objects)

Impossible Objects logo
Impossible Objects (IO) has pioneered a new, industrial additive manufacturing process called "CBAM" for rapid production of functional parts made from fiber-reinforced composites. The advantages are faster build speed, superior strength-to-weight ratio properties, and a large palette of high-performance materials including carbon fiber, aramid and fiberglass. CBAM parts are stronger than other polymeric AM technologies, and are ideal for applications in the automotive, aviation, aerospace, defense, energy, and other industries.
