Traditional Composite Manufacturing
Composites are stronger, lighter, and stiffer than traditional manufacturing materials. With all the added benefits of composites and seemingly endless applications, they are replacing traditional manufacturing materials in a wide range of applications across industries.
One key factor limiting growth, is the manufacturing of composites relies on labor-intensive and artisanal methods, a heavy investment of time and resources. This limits the number of materials that can be manufactured, the geometries of parts, and stifles the potential applications in which they can be utilized.
While composite materials are far superior, the required manufacturing processes are too complicated and expensive to scale. Fortify’s DCM platform was developed to address this cost/performance gap and combines the speed and flexibility of additive manufacturing with the performance of composites.
