The large-format Continuous Fiber Additive Manufacturing (CFAM) Prime machine from Dutch system manufacturer CEAD has officially launched with the support of two industry partners.
Marine engineering company Royal Roos, based in Rotterdam, and fiberglass reinforcement specialist Poly Products, headquartered in the Southern Netherlands, have become the first two customers of the new system.

Fulko Roos, founder of Royal Roos, comments “Fast and accurate 3D printing of large and strong (ship) parts was so far not possible,”
“WITH THIS NEW 3D PRINTER THIS WILL WORK.”
CFAM - Prime - Volume - M - M
The CFAM Prime has a volume of 2 m x 4m x 1.5 m, which CEAD believes makes it the “largest commercially available 3D printer in Europe.”
It is an FFF technology based system, capable of processing PP, PET, ABS and high temperature PEEK, with either glass or carbon fiber reinforcement. On average, the machine is capable of print speeds of up to 15 kg/hr, and is designed to run for 24 hours without operator intervention.
Demonstration - CFAM - Prime - Capabilities - Royal
As a demonstration of the CFAM Prime’s capabilities, Royal Roos 3D printed a lifesize cabin on the the machine in a 50-hour build. Sanded and painted this cabin, a prototype for a crane, was presented on the system’s official...
