Brightlands Materials Center is developing Continuous Fiber Additive Manufacturing technology for production of structural, lightweight and freeform parts for aerospace and other mobility markets. The technology manufactures thermoplastic composite parts with a high strength versus weight ratio in complex shapes. Unique design optimalization and parts integration allows for further weight savings compared to parts that are traditionally manufactured.
