Enclosed LSAM
Thermwood recently introduced the LSAM MT, a lower cost moving table version of its LSAM (Large Scale Additive Manufacturing). Several Thermwood customers requested an enclosed machine configuration that is the same size as the MT, but configured like the larger LSAM high wall systems.

To address this request Thermwood has announced the LSAM 1010. This system uses the walls from the larger LSAM systems with the gantry, control and sub-systems from the MT. It features a fixed 10’ x 10’ table. A single moving gantry carries both the print and trim heads and, like the MT, it can both print and trim (but not at the same time). The print and trim heads on all Thermwood LSAMs can process virtually any reinforced composite thermoplastic material available today.

The LSAM 1010 is slightly wider than the larger LSAMs but the overall footprint of the 1010 is slightly smaller than required for the MT. And, like the MT, the 1010 can be purchased as a print only machine.

Thermwood believes that, since it is enclosed like the larger LSAMs, the LSAM 1010 can be built to meet European CE requirements, just like the larger machines.
