IDEAL FOR HIGH PRODUCTION VOLUME

High-performance composites are ideal for serial production of end-use parts. You can profit from an optimised design as well as substantial cost savings.

Graph Icon

Up to 80% weight and 50% cost savings in series production

Wrench Icon

Design and manufacture complex parts in no time

Red Shield Icon

High reproducibility - Series production quality

Gear Icon

Print end-use parts overnight, at a fraction of the costs

Quickly come up with highly optimised designs

Fibrify® enables the user to quickly define the fibre designs and fully optimise them by directly exporting the composite parts to commercially available FEA simulation packages for verification of their structural ability.

Print Strong and Lightweight Parts

Additive Fusion Technology does not compromise part quality by combining state of the art additive manufacturing equipment (Build Module) with advanced post processing (Fusion Module) and results in parts that can be used in the most extreme conditions.

Collaborate closely

Besides advanced software and hardware, 9T Labs supports you with our application engineering team to jointly transform your series production ideas into production cases.

PRODUCE WITH ADDITIVE FUSION TECHNOLOGY™

Two things are important to produce a lightweight structural part: Optimal fiber layup and excellent consolidation. The Additive Fusion Technology (AFT) allows the automated manufacturing of optimized part designs coming from the Fibrify® software by first using the Build Module to produce a fiber layup.

At this stage, the resulting preform part does not yet fulfill the consolidation quality required of a structural composite part, which is achieved by the Fusion Module, applying heat and pressure to fuse the preform part together. This proprietary two-stage process ensures part quality, reproducibility and cost competitiveness for your series production applications.

Material Structure Before Fusion
Material Structure After Fusion

Void content representing the imperfections inside a part and the short beam strength representing the bonding between adjacent layers are two evaluation criteria used to measure the consolidation quality.

FIBRIFY® platform

Fibrify® Design Suite enables you to quickly define the fiber designs. You can fully optimise them by directly exporting the composite parts to commercially available FEA simulation packages for verification of their structural ability. Fibrify® Production lets you control, monitor and manage your equipment in real-time.
