Continuous Composites got its start with a stab wound. When a strand of fiberglass punctured Ken Tyler’s skin, the North Idaho inventor started thinking about the strength of the lightweight material. “It’s an amazing technology, and it’s going to change how things are built,” said Tyler Alvarado, the company’s Chief Executive Officer.
Coeur d'Alene is widely known for its resort atmosphere, beautiful beaches, and outdoor living. However, less than one block from its historic and touristy main street, and a stone's throw from the lake, is something few would expect to see - Continuous Composites, one of the world's top innovators in Continuous Fiber 3D Printing (CF3D™)
As the state’s premier business innovation awards program, the Idaho Innovation Awards recognize groundbreaking accomplishments in five categories. Five winners and 10 finalists were recognized at the awards ceremony, a segment of the ITC’s ninth annual Hall of Fame celebration, held at Boise Centre.
Finalists have been selected in the 13th Annual Idaho Innovation Awards. The Idaho Innovation Awards spotlight innovations, innovative professionals and innovative companies statewide.
The future of manufacturing is right here in Coeur d’Alene. That’s what Tyler Alvarado believes. Alvarado is the CEO of Continuous Composites, a Coeur d’Alene-based 3D printing company. “We’re ready to start telling the story of our technology,”
Continuous Composites teams up with robotics giant Comau and software giant Autodesk to demonstrate a real-time digital manufacturing cell.
In material science, strength alone is often found to have its limitations so that a combination of hard and soft, rigid and flexible is an area of increasing interest for a wide range of applications from building, to sports equipment, to protective apparel.
Generative design replicates nature’s evolutionary approach by combining artificial intelligence (AI) — specifically advanced optimization algorithms — and cloud computing to provide thousands of solutions to one engineering problem.
Comau has teamed with Autodesk and Continuous Composites at Automatica to demonstrate a real-time digital manufacturing cell that combines virtual sensors, intelligent design software and Continuous Composites’ patented Continuous Fiber 3D Printing Technology (CF3D™).
Continuous Composites is a company that’s been working on a rather different process for 3D printing that should prove extremely attractive for certain types of manufacturing.
New composite manufacturing technology for multi-material, multifunctional composite structures. There is a company that has been printing in continuous composites since 2012.
At the RadTech 2016 awards dinner, creative users of UV/EB technologies were honored with Emerging Technology Awards.
The additive manufacturing field is crammed with numerous start-ups vying to establish their niches and differentiate themselves from peers.
Even as resin development takes a step forward, 3D-printed objects still have inherent structural flaws because of the layered building steps of the traditional additive manufacturing process.
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho-based company Continuous Composites has introduced a novel process, known as Continuous Scaled Manufacturing (CSM), that some believe could revolutionize 3D printing.
Imagine 3D printing a car, the wall of a building, an aircraft wing or some similarly complicated structure all in one step.
When explaining 3D printing concepts to the uninitiated, there’s always that moment of disappointment when they find out that you can’t actually 3D print functional objects...
The world of 3D printing holds so much promise for many industries, and there are new technologies that are improving the 3D printing process.
3D printed objects are usually built up in horizontal layers by a printer head, light or heater passing across the printing plate horizontally, but what about printing the entire part vertically in one go?
