MarkForged (Cambridge, MA, US) will return to CAMX with the Mark One Composite 3D Printer and an assortment of ultra-strong fiber-reinforced 3D-printed parts and applications. MarkForged notes that this new approach using additive manufacturing technology to automate the composite layup process with thermoplastics relieves the laborious tasks normally associated with traditional composite layup. Manufacturers are no longer limited to sheets of composite, long-lead time tooling, clamshell designs, and manual labor. The Mark One can turn complex assemblies into one printed part. As the world’s first 3D printer capable of printing continuous strand carbon fiber, Kevlar, and fiberglass, the Mark One Composite 3D Printer uses a patented Continuous Filament Fabrication (CFF) print head alongside a FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) printhead to create tough and functional parts. MarkForged says the system allows designers and engineers to 3D-print reinforced plastic parts that are up to 30 times stronger and 30 times stiffer than conventional 3D-printed parts made from ABS plastic.
