Working with a wide range of advanced tech solutions: from state-of-the-art industrial printers to our robotic AM system, to manufacture parts with no limits in size.
Integrating all core competences across the value chain, starting from know-how on materials and a network of partnerships with suppliers, as well as on hardware, software and on our client’s industries.
We use the most advanced design for additive manufacturing techniques – working with generative and parametric design, and topological optimization of parts to improve geometries.
We accompany clients starting with identifying their needs and opportunities, and we customize our solutions to provide the most out of their adoption of additive manufacturing, addressing the most demanding requirement of the most advanced industries.
HERON AM, our LFAM platform, was developed to provide several benefits
Large Scale Components
Caracol’s robotic system prints advanced parts with no scale limits, up to 12 m.
Caracol’s software algorithms and use of a 6-axis robotic arm allow to manufacture a higher number of applications and more complex geometries.
Lower Operating Costs & Flexibility
A highly flexible that adapts to productive needs, it works efficiently with low operating costs without compromising on quality and performance.
Lower Raw Material Costs
Works with a wide range of composites: from advanced techno polymers blended with fibers (e.g., carbon, glass) to recycled material shreds.
Drastically Cuts Material Waste
Can reduce up to 60% raw material used in production, using only material needed and printing without supports, it can also manufacture using recycled material.

HIGH ACCURACY (HA)
Designed to be lightweight and compact. The small size ensures greater agility, limiting the risks of the extruder colliding with the printed parts. Making it ideal for printing at high speed while ensuring high quality material processing.
|1 to 7mm
HIGH FLOW (HF)
Built to provide high throughput and temperature to process an extensive range of technical polymers and composites. Designed to drastically reduce printing time, its fusion chamber with thermal control sections allows process monitoring, ensuring materials’ properties are kept during print.
|2 to 12mm
Some examples of the wide range of polymers and composites we process
Lightweight with good mechanical properties, it can replace glass fiber and aluminum in marine structural parts or aerospace molds and tools.
Stiff, flame-retardant, and lightweight. PA CF is suitable for high mechanical performance, light structures exposed to medium heat environments.
With great thermal and mechanical properties. It has been qualified for mid-temperature autoclave processes.
A high-strength and flexibility elastomer, ideal for large-scale rubber-like parts – such as topologically optimized pliable structures, like cushions and seating.
This high impact, chemical and UV resistant polymer is ideal for PVC-like, exterior structures and prototyping applications.
We work a wide variety of recycled materials from grinding waste or parts at the end of their life, client’s waste, or by purchasing upcycled material.
We provide several benefits to their manufacturing processes
- Up to 70% PRODUCT COST SAVINGS
- Up to 60% RAW MATERIAL SAVED
- Up to 50% WEIGHT DECREASED
- Up to 2X LEAD TIME REDUCTION
- FULL CUSTOMIZATION at single unit level
- RECYCLE WASTE from production
- INVENTORY & LOGISTICS COSTS reduction
