9T Labs enables Carbon Fiber 3D Printing

Carbon fiber finds applications in multiple industries from high-tech aerospace to sports equipment. The high strength-to-weight ratio of carbon fiber along with the versatility of components makes it an ideal material for manufacturers. However, the drawback of using composite carbon fibers is the cost of production which seems prohibitive for many producers. With advances in material sciences and 3D printing, startups develop solutions to economically mass-produce carbon fiber composites.

9T Labs is a Swiss engineering startup that develops advanced solutions for 3D manufacturing. The startup’s products combine in-depth simulation and design software to create optimal carbon fiber composites. It also offers the 3D printing equipment needed to manufacture the designed composites. 9T Lab’s solution thus allows manufacturers to speed up time-to-market for their carbon fiber composite products.

Solerial Matusions develops a Nanoparticle Additive

The use of additives is widespread in all industries, as without them, many products simply lose multitudes of benefits, including reducing production costs. Traditionally, materials with the same properties as additives are expensive and time-consuming to manufacture. Startups are in constant competition to create efficient and stronger additives.

Swedish startup Solerial Matusions manufactures a patented carbon fiber nanoparticle additive. The startup’s additive solution aims at reducing the weight and cost of aircraft structural components, while also offering superior lightning protection.

Boston Materials provides Milled Carbon Fiber Manipulation

Recycling material is always the preferred alternative to the disposal of materials as it helps to reduce environmental pollution. One recycled by-product of carbon fiber is milled carbon fiber which is versatile in terms of its properties. Milled carbon fiber is ideal for mixing in paints, resins, etc. However, reusing it in solid composites presents a challenge as structures of fibers are not aligned thus causing structural integrity failure.

US-based startup Boston Materials develops a patented magnetic alignment process that enables the structural alignment of milled carbon fiber. The process ensures carbon fiber composites exhibit a high tolerance for stress and strain. In addition, this allows for the production of large rolls of carbon fiber, lowering the manufacturing cost.

Weav3D offers Automated Composite Weaving

The production of composites using carbon fiber is often capital intensive and time-consuming – sometimes even requiring custom equipment or development. Another limiting factor of carbon fiber composites is the scalability of production. The increase in demand for carbon fiber is met with technological improvements as startups shift their focus to developing innovative solutions.

Weav3D is a US-based startup that designs and creates an automated process for carbon fiber composite manufacturing through weaving and composite consolidation. The startup enables the processing of multiple continuous, fiber-reinforced thermoplastic tapes, providing applications across multiple industries.

Rein4ced manufactures Impact Resistant Composite

The production and development of high-performance vehicles is a clear application area for carbon fiber composites. Carbon fiber composites are used in vehicle components, involving intense pressure and stress. In such vehicles, a compromise in the structural integrity of the carbon fiber can render the vehicle inoperable and result in severe injuries for the driver. To combat this, startups develop stronger carbon fiber composites that withstand greater stress.

Belgian startup Rein4ced builds a patented carbon fiber composite material designed to handle extreme structural stress. The startup’s composite material displays improved brittleness compared to similar composites at the same weight. The solution aims to completely replace traditional metal components on small-scale vehicles without compromising traveler safety.
