COSMED

COSMED is a 3D printer for printing paste-like materials such as food, waxes, glues, silicones, etc. It is generally used in the agri-food, cosmetic or medical  fields.

The syringes can be standard (medical, cartridges) or custom made from 304L or 316L stainless steel.

The nozzles can be easily swapped and therefore it is possible to adapt the extrusion diameter. Syringes between 2mL and 200mL have already been made.

The extrusion mode can be by piston mechanical compression, or else by
compressed air, depending on the extrusion constraints of the material.

It is possible to design machines for integration in a clean room environment with air treatment system.
