3D printed large Polypropylene 30% short glass fibers molds with 5-axis CNC machine
Rapid Prototyping mold for truck-project
Hungarian manufacturer uses CEAD Robot Extruder to cut composite tooling time and cost.
One of the first projects completed with this new 3D printing system is a fiberglass mold for a composite sleeper cab for custom truck and trailer manufacturer Krismar (Waardamme, Belgium). “This is quite a big component, measuring 2550 by 2200 by 1200 millimeters,” says Juhász. “We wanted to print the maximum thickness possible in order to avoid warping and deformation when cooling down.” The 30-millimeter thickness was printed in two layers of 15 millimeters each and used almost 400 kilograms of glass fiber-reinforced polypropylene pellets.
