9T Labs advances lightweight design by simplifying the use of high-performance materials

Engineers that push the boundaries of lightweight design in satellites, medical prosthetics, drones, automotive and other areas love working with carbon fiber materials because of its extraordinary high strength to weight ratio. However, they currently face two problems:

1. Prototyping and low volume production is time-consuming and extremely expensive;

2. Conventional manufacturing methods strongly restrict geometric complexity of a design.

9T Labs solves these problems by introducing a 3d printer that processes continuously reinforced carbon fiber composites. Our product combines a new material process with latest sensor technology and learning techniques to give engineers manufacturing flexibility, while maintaining high finished part quality.
