The environment around manufacturing technology is dynamic and ever-changing. In order to streamline current processes and enable new frontiers within advanced materials, Fortify (Boston, Mass., U.S.) set out on a mission to enable quick and seamless fabrication of production quality composites. Built on top of decades of advanced materials research, Fortify has invented a process for magnetically optimized 3D printing called Fluxprint. Today, the Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM) Platform has found success in tooling, aerospace, and automotive applications, impacting innovative businesses across the country.
At the Additive Manufacturing Workshop at this year’s CAMX, Josh Martin, CEO & Co-Founder of Fortify will discuss the research and development of DCM & Fluxprint in his presentation “Manufacturing Performance Materials Using Magnetic 3D Printing”, while outlining real-world examples putting these applications to the test. Attendees will learn key sets of applications and use cases in additive composite manufacturing as well as the big challenges and next steps for the industry.
Martin is a mechanical engineer and materials scientist by training. He received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Delaware, where he was first exposed to composite materials. Josh worked as a materials scientist at the Army Research Labs before moving to Boston to pursue his Ph.D. at Northeastern University under a National Science Foundation Fellowship. His research spun out into Fortify, where he operates as CEO.
The session will take place on Wednesday September 25 from 1:15 p.m – 01:45 p.m.

Powerhouse manufacturer’s high-pressure compression molding process forms prepregged CFRP components with forged-metal properties.
There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.
Applications aren't as demanding as airframe composites, but requirements are still exacting — passenger safety is key.
