A fundamental shift in composites manufacturing.
CF3D® combines high-performing composite materials with rapid curing thermoset resins to create complex parts on demand. With the ability to print both structural and functional fibers, Continuous Composites presents a new future for additive manufacturing with composites.
As the additive manufacturing landscape continues to expand, CF3D® shifts the standard by making 3D printing a viable, end-part manufacturing solution. CF3D® is fully automated, scalable, efficient, and tailorable to the user’s applications.
Prints fibers in all three dimensions with continuous anisotropic material, enabling complex geometries.
Fully automated, affordable raw materials, high material yield, and elimination of extensive labor resulting in lower manufacturing costs.
Build volume of machines can be increased or decreased for part application.
Tailorable fiber + library of resins to create endless material combinations specific to user’s application.
Strategic partners Continuous Composites and Arkema/Sartomer are developing a library of photocurable resins for use in a variety of OOA, high-speed, high-performance composite applications.
“It’s extremely important for us to show the world what our technology is capable of.” This is the conclusion Tyler Alvarado, the CEO of Continuous Composites, made when carrying a complex carbon fiber 3D printed sample part across the RAPID + TCT trade show floor in 2017. He was met with a tonne of questions about a technology, Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D), that was still in development, still operating behind the curtain, and perhaps better demonstrated than explained.
Continuous Composites is opening a 7,500 square foot facility for research, development, and additive manufacturing in Idaho. The new building demonstrates their patented Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D) technology at the largest scale to date, increasing their previous build volume by 25 times.
The 25+5 event, hosted by Ignite Northwest and the Spokane Journal of Business, celebrates 25 of the most compelling startups and five companies to watch in the future. Coeur d’Alene-based Continuous Composites won an award for the “most radical product or service.”
