Cincinnati Inc. (Harrison, OH, US) has released a new carbon fiber-reinforced material for its SAAM (Small Area Additive Manufacturing) 3D printing system. The new material, comprising chopped carbon fiber in a PA matrix resin, is said to be impact-resistant, lightweight and has a very high strength-to-weight ratio. Carbon fiber reinforcement makes the material stiff, durable and low warping. Cincinnati Inc. says advanced interlayer adhesion results in accurate parts with good dimensions. The material’s high-quality surface finish makes it well-suited for custom tooling applications, as well as assembly, CMM, welding and CNC fixtures.
