Carima to Exhibit New C-CAT Tech at Formnext 2022

Seoul-based 3D printer firm Carima has been advancing printer know-how in South Korea because the yr 2000, and in that point they’ve amassed 23 granted patents and 63 pending patent functions.

They’re the oldest 3D printer producer within the nation and have obtained quite a few accolades together with the distinguished Prime Minister’s Award.

The corporate shall be showing at this yr’s Formnext 2022 occasion, and shall be exhibiting a number of of their improvements for all to see in Corridor 11.1 E21.

Their C-CAT (Carima Steady Additive Expertise) printers shall be on present, which incorporates the DM400 and IMD fashions.

As well as, guests can check out the corporate’s CL300Pro post-cure system, a number of of their resins (together with non-toxic resins), and a number of examples of prints manufactured with their methods.

For extra data, learn on!


Carima shall be demonstrating their upgraded resin-based C-CAT (Carima Steady Additive Expertise) course of, which is the world’s quickest steady AM know-how.

C-CAT is able to 3D printing at 1cm per minute, making it 20x sooner than typical resin 3D printers on the identical construct space. That’s a whopping 60cm per hour!

As an extra innovation, Carima’s R&D group has labored to attenuate launch forces required to separate prints after they’ve completed. The lowered launch power required for eradicating printed components means that there’s a considerably diminished danger of damaging the half throughout launch.

C-CAT has been developed as an open materials system, which means that competitor’s resins are printable on the C-CAT methods.

The corporate has demonstrated printing with many various resins on C-CAT methods, and have produced components for all kinds of industries. Examples embrace, clear aligners for dentistry, sneakers/midsoles in footwear, and medical objects resembling arm casts.

You may see an instance of the arm solid being printed within the video beneath, and the corporate shall be giving a reside demo of solid printing at Formnext.

Let’s now check out the printers utilizing C-CAT that shall be on show at Formnext 2022.


First up is the DM400, which is the world’s largest top-down DLP printer.

The DM400 is an industrial machine that has been designed for mass producing resin components.

With a construct space of 400 x 330 x 500mm, giant print runs of smaller components are doable, as are bigger, heavier components.

When evaluating the DM400 to similar-sized SLA printers on dental initiatives, Carima discovered the DM400 to be 5x sooner than industrial SLA 3D printers with the identical construct space.

Along with regular resins, useful resins resembling excessive viscosity rubbers (10,000 cPs) will be printed with the DM400, no drawback in any respect.


Subsequent up is the IMD, which is a flexible desktop DLP 3D printer powered by Carima’s C-CAT know-how.

The Carima IMD is specifically designed for dental and medical functions and has been extraordinarily standard with the dental market in Germany, Japan and the U.S.

The IMD is a particularly quick 3D printer with a 124 x 70 x 140 mm construct plate.

The IMD doesn’t compromise on repeatability or precision, because of its FHD display screen decision and 99% mild uniformity.


To make sure the best high quality and full curing, Carima has their very own post-curing unit, the CL300Pro. With its highly effective 300 Watts UV LEDS and curing space of 150 x 110mm, fashions will be utterly post-cured in roughly 3 minutes. And that’s not only a floor remedy, however internally as effectively.

Large Number of Resins

To enhance their printers, Carima additionally has their very own line of over 25 resins which incorporates their non-toxic CMYK coloration resins, and difficult resins. The CMYK resins are available in 5 colours permitting for graduating coloration printing and is non-toxic, making it appropriate for printing youngsters’s toys.
