CEAD at FUTURE COMPOSITE MANUFACTURING – AFP & AM symposium
AM Flexbot including CNC milling, DFC and increased build volume
In September the Chair of Carbon Composites (LCC) at Technical Universyty of Munich (TUM) hosted the virtual symposium “FUTURE COMPOSITE MANUFACTURING – AFP & AM”. The symposium reviewed composites R&D capabilities at both TUM and ANU, as well as completed and ongoing projects with industrial partners including AFPT, Airbus, BMW, CEAD, DLR, Fraunhofer, GKN Aerospace, INOMETA, SGL Carbon and Victrex.
CEAD and large-scale 3D printing
Maarten Logtenberg, executive director of CEAD (Delft, Netherlands) gave a presentation about the large-scale 3D printing solutions CEAD offers.
Highlights from Logtenberg’s presentation included CEAD’s development of hybrid solutions that integrate CNC milling, large heated print beds (1.2m x 3m and 1.2m x 2m) and heated rotary print beds. It is also pursuing even larger cells and 45-degree printing, as well as printing of fiber-reinforced tools for serial autoclave production of commercial aircraft parts.
