Joint Development of Hybrid System for 3D Printing of Thermoplastic Composite Parts

October 16 2017

CMS SpA and Fraunhofer IWU announced their R&D partnership, focused on the development of a new hybrid system for the 3D printing and machining of thermoplastic composite parts.

The new system, named CMS Kreator, will be available in several configurations and sizes, to cover a wide area of industrial needs, coming from different sectors (e.g. Aerospace, Automotive, Marine Industry, and Wind Energy) and related to the manufacturing of prototypes and special parts. Due to the multiple simultaneous operating units’ technology by CMS, it is also possible to provide the system with a 5-axis milling unit for the finishing and with a fiber placement unit, actually making the additive manufacturing of thermoset CFRP possible.
