The world of 3D printing holds so much promise for many industries, and there are new technologies that are improving the 3D printing process. Through its Continuous Scaled Manufacturing process, Continuous Composites (CC3D), located in Coeur d’Alene, ID, is helping to move the technology ahead.
Continuous Scaled Manufacturing is a new 3D printing process that prints continuous fiber with UV thermoset resin. As a result, Continuous Composites received the Emerging Innovation Award at RadTech’s 2016 UV/EB Conference in Chicago.
From its first provisional patent for Continuous Composite Three Dimensional filed in August 2012 to today, Continuous Composites is creating strong, functional, lightweight parts at a lower cost and at greater speed. Two years ago, the company pioneered its AMG (additive mechanical growth) concept, which utilizes tubular printing techniques to digitally produce advanced structures with potentially unlimited size and shape.
