WEBINAR ON-DEMAND:
Exploring the Possibilities for Tooling and Printing Composites

 

The advanced manufacturing capabilities of 3D printing opens the door for new applications to support composite fabrication. During this webinar, you’ll hear from a panel of composite leaders from Dassault Falcon Jet, Orbital ATK, SSL, and Santa Cruz Bicycles who will discuss how additive is making an impact in the area of composites and why FDM specifically is filling an important role in their work.

Duration: 25 minutes

FDM Ancillary Tooling for Composite Fabrication

FDM® has been proven to be a valuable and disruptive solution for composite fabrication tooling. In addition to layup mould tools, FDM technology offers significant advantages for ancillary tools used in secondary operations such as trimming, drilling, assembly, bonding and inspection. The benefits include reduced lead time and cost, design simplification, and ease of fabrication and use.
