Carbon composite is the best material in the world for strong and lightweight applications - easily outperforming metal. Up to 70% stronger than metal. Up to 80% more lightweight than metal
Whatever your functional requirements are — flame resistance, chemical resistance, energy absorbance, radiolucency, high stiffness- and strength-to-weight ratio — you can manufacture functional parts with 9T Labs technology.
Composite parts built from layers of thermoplastics and reinforcing fibers offer a strong, lightweight solution for aerospace parts, surgical guides, consumer products and more. But when composite material are manufactured conventionally, high cost hinder their widespread use.

We need digital, automated, cost-competitive series production methods for continuous fiber components.
Use an open and versatile 3D printing solution for high-temperature, structural continuous carbon fiber composites. Produce tailored reinforcements and preforms that can be post-processed.
High-performance composites are ideal for serial production. Easily produce end-use structural parts in high volumes, at a fraction of the cost.
You are not alone: We help you ramp up your production by offering software, hardware, materials and our engineering expertise.
We do not just sell you our printers, but we are by your side from the start till the end. It is important to us that the part you need works 100% with our technology.
We work with various partners to develop the next generation of composite applications:
Lightweight and sustainability are becoming more and more important. As an innovative company, we need to explore new technologies for the future of digital series production. With 9T Labs cost-competitive approach, we can reduce part weight and production costs.
The demand for thermoplastic composites has seen a steady increase due to their favourable processability and mechanical performance. In addition to capturing these benefits, 9T Labs technology shows that radically new, lightweight designs are made possible.
Just like in other industries, creating a digital workflow in composite manufacturing is needed to reduce design cycles and increase flexibility. Ansys works closely together with 9T Labs to establish this seamless link between design, simulation and production of end-use parts.
As a leading supplier of thermoplastic composites technologies, we are excited to contribute our materials expertise to help accelerate 9T Labs’ developments in the 3D printing space to produce structural composite parts.
9T Labs' Additive Fusion Technology leverages the benefits of printing, automated tape laying, and compression molding to deliver fully dense parts with multidirectional reinforcement. Moreover, this technology scales to the volumes of production parts needed by serial manufacturers. The end result is a solution with the potential to dramatically shift the industry away from metal and towards composite parts.
Under the CDCQ's leadership, Mawashi, an Original Equipment Manufacturer was introduced to 9T Labs' new high performance composite manufacturing technology which presents great potential for the production of their exoskeleton. This project is a good example of the CDCQ's ability to execute development projects with high impact on the enterprise as well as on the academic program of the College. Our Motto: Greater together.
I have been impressed by the company’s unique solution and am very excited to help the team to bring this technology to manufacturing companies around the world.
