The first UK based high temperature polymer additive manufacturing machine (EOS P800) at the University of Exeter.

Equipment, facilities, and capabilities

The Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing has already established an impressive array of leading-edge machinery including 3D printing, Laser Sintering, Laser Melting, and deposition/extrusion processes.

Of particular interest is CALM’s acquisition of a high temperature additive manufacturing system from EOS (EOSINT P800) – the only system in the UK capable of additive manufacturing with high temperature plastics. Please contact CALM to discuss opportunities to see this machine operating and talk with our experts about potential new areas of research and product development.

X-AT facilities

Working closely with X-AT at the University of Exeter, CALM has access to a wide range of research grade analytical equipment including mechanical testing, microscopy, and thermal analysis.
