Pam Series P
Polymer Additive Manufacturing 

The materials-based solution for a wide variety of applications.

Pam is the first 3D printing technology capable of printing raw materials as pellets, the industrial standard.
Pam Series P is the system with the best properties for parts printed with Commodity (ABS, PP, PA) and Elastomers (TPE, TPU) polymers.


Pellets
The materials already used

Thanks to its capacity of using pellets, Pam Series P is the only additive manufacturing technology using existing polymers instead of custom developped ones.
By using true materials, high diversity manufacturing becomes an economical reality.

Multi-material
Up to 4 on a single part

With 4 extruders, Pam Seris P allows unprecedented applications.
Multi-material, properties combination and advanced support enable a whole new level of creativity for demanding industries.

Use Case
Hose Clamp – ABS

Dematerialize warehouses by manufacturing spare parts with commodity material at competitve price with a technology allowing on demand and local production: Pam Series P.

Price per Pam Injection Moulding
100 $1,04 $98,94
1000 $0,94 $10,55
35 000 $0,93 $1,00

Pam allows production at lower cost than injection moulding up to 35 000 pieces for this part.

The Power of Pellets

Pam Series P is a pellet based 3D printer. This is the most widely used format in the plastic industry.
This allows access to industrial chemistries with no modification, at the price of industrial quantites.

Fine grained temperature control

With 12 temperature control points in the print head, the polymers are treated perfectly: negligeable shear forces and residence time.
This garantees a first class treatment of polymers and ensures the best properties for printed parts.

ABS – The Industry Standard
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene

Unbeatable cost

ABS is one of the most used polymer of all industries. It offers interesting mechanical properties but is also very affordable.

Pam Series P allows printting of this commodity material at 10x lower material cost than filament equivalent.

110% of mechanical properties

Thanks to its excellent thermal handling of material inside the system, Pam Series P is capable of unbeatable material performances.
In ABS, characterization showed that parts printed with Pam Series P have 110% of the mechanical properties of the same injection moulding part.

TPE – Elastomers
ThermoPlastic Elastomer

Unbeatable variety

No other 3D printing technology is capable of treating as much variety of elastomers as Pam Series P.

Once again thanks to its excellent thermal handling, with such low resident time, it produces better elastomer parts.

Isotropic Behavior

Specific propertis of elastomers are used in a wide variety of industries, especially with low shores. Pam Series P processes those with excellent inter-layer cohesion.
These participate to the isotropic behavior that has been demonstrated for TPU tensiles.

Multimaterial
At the heart of the slicing process

Slicing software

Pam Series P uses a well known open-source slicing solution.
And slicing — the parts preparation process — is the first step to produce parts, particularly multi-material parts.

With its 4 independant extruders, Pam Series P allows to produce either a single part with a single material, multiple parts with multiple materials, or a single part with different materials.

Multi-properties

Thanks to its multimaterial capabilities, Pam Series P can produce parts combining properties: soft touch with a rigid structure or mecanical part woith a sealing property.

Special mention has to be made to smart support (or PVA) which allows creation of complex parts where support can be dissolved after building by simply putting the piece in water.

Honeyprint
Custom software for demanding industrials

Autonomous system

Thanks to its web-based interface, Pam Series P and Pam Series M can ban controlled by any device, locally or remotely.

It is also completely autonomous. No dedicated additional equipment is required and one operator can control multiple systems.

Open and powerful

Honeyprint, the software at the heart of Pam series P and Pam series M has been specifically engineered from the ground up for its technology. It allows to have the most control on the system.

Plus, its API allows custom interactions and integration into existing industrial workflows.


Pam Series M
Metal Additive Manufacturing

The most affordable Metal Additive Manufacturing solution.

Any industrial looking for metal production of small and medium series parts has some obstacles to face.
Pam Series M is the right balance between functionality, scalability, rentability in order to make metal 3D printing integration successfull.


Low Machine Cost
Low Materials Cost

Additive Manufacturing has always been the solution of choice when producing highly diverse parts.
Pam Series M uses standard MIM metal feedstock pellets at industrial price. Add the fact that the machine has the most competitive price on the market, and you obtain the only solution capable of going to straight production for small and medium scale series metal parts.

Industrial materials
For industrial applications

Pollen AM has sourced the best existing MIM (Metal Injection Moulding) metal feedstock from the leading expert chemical companies. Start producing with Stainless Steel, Titanium, Tungsten and more, with the expected quality output of MIM technology.

20x less expensive than machining. 2x less expensive than other MIM-like AM technologies.

The Power of Pellets

All the qualities of the Pam technology are available in Pam Series M. By using pellets, it has access to industrial chemistries with no modification, at the price of industrial quantites.
And with its 12 points of thermal treatment, Pam Series M printhead is handling materials with refinement.

Pam Technology. Evolved.

Pam Series M is the latest evolution of the Pam technology, and the result of 5 years of Research and Development.
Tailored for metal 3D printing, it relies on an even stronger build quality, handling more challenging materials, and can be deployed « as-is ».

From metal feedstock to a fully dense metal part
Based on a well known process

By using the exact same MIM metal feedstock from the most advanced chemical companies, the process of removing the polymer matrix and sintering the part is entirely similar to Metal Injection Moulding, with 20% uniform part reduction.
In a nutshell, the core difference is that you do not rely on a mould.
Pam Series M is compatible with: 316L Stainless Steel, 17-4 Stainless Steel, Titanium and more to come.

3D printed parts — the Green Part — need to go trough a chemical debinding phase — to obtain a Brown Part — which is then sintered at high temperature to obtain a metal — or Sintered — part. The result is a fully dense metal part (>99%).

The final sintered part is 100% metal.

A competitive solution
On the whole product lifecycle

Highly cost effective

Pam Series M is the most affordable metal additive manufacturing solution on the market.
The hardware is up to 20x less expensive than existing solutions.
Materials are up to 5x less expensive.

As a result, small and medium scale production of metal parts become highly profitable.

Ready for scaling

The strengh of Pam Series M is that it uses the exact same materials already used with Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).

This allows demanding industrial to start working immediately with a well known process, backed by the most technical chemical partners. Then keep the material when scaling to Metal Injection Molding (MIM) for higher volumes.

Four different extruders
Enabling highest resolution at highest speed

The slicing process used by Pollen AM with Pam Series M allows industrials to prepare their parts using up to 4 different extruders, each with a different resolution.
Parts prepared this way can be printed at the highest speed with no compromise between speed and mechanical properties.
