Composite-based additive manufacturing technology is the only process that combines long-fibre fabrics of carbon with high performance polymer powders to make long fibre composite parts.

How does powder-based composite 3D printing work?

The technology uses high-speed inkjet printing methods to produce high-performance composite parts without tooling or messy resins.
