According to Thermwood, “LSAM is intended for industrial production. It is not a lab, evaluation or demonstration machine, but is instead a full-fledged industrial additive manufacturing system intended for the production of large scale components.
Thermwood has already applied for 19 separate patents on various aspects of this new technology. LSAM is true “state of the art” in this exciting new world of Large Scale Additive Manufacturing.
LSAM produces superior printed parts”.
