3D-printed carbon fiber-filled composite components enable a robotic weeding system prototype intended to replace use of chemical herbicides.
A feasibility study demonstrated the cost- and time-saving potential of replacing a part’s current materials and processes with additive manufacturing.
The FRP profiles, manufactured by Italy-based M.M. S.r.l., allow easy fabrication and construction on-site in less than two days.
