Processing of composite materials is a fast growing field within the field of Additive Manufacturing. Today, more than 19 companies develop technology to offer solutions that enable 3D printed components made from composite materials and continuous fibers.
AMPOWER conducted the technology study to evaluate the status quo of processing composite materials with Additive Manufacturing. Following key questions were answered. What is the current status of the technology to produce composite materials with AM? What are the costs? What are the resulting material properties?
The analysis includes an evaluation of the specific process chain including the digital processing, the cost and productivity, materials properties, among others.
AMPOWER conducted the study from mid 2020 to mid 2021.
