anisoprint | Composer A3 & A4

Additive manufacturing of continuous fiber reinforced composites for production of extremely strong and lightweight composite material parts. Anisoprinting technology is a new solution for the production of extremely strong and lightweight composite material parts and structures with the a broad range of physical and mechanical characteristics. The Anisoprint solution is based on patent pending Composite Filament Coextrusion (CFC) technology. Different thermoplastic polymers can be reinforced with continuous fibres, consolidated and cured within a single-stage fully automated process that does not require post processing or tooling.

DESKTOP DEVICES

SLICER SOFTWARE AURA

The special slicer software Anisoprint Aura is included free for the preparation of printing tasks. It allows to slice the 3D model in a given format (STL, STEP, IGES), optimize and tune the reinforcement paths and fiber volume fractions in the different zones of the model.
Aura offers the capability of defining different temperatures for plastic and composite nozzles, setting micro-layers with better thickness tolerances, defining unreinforced printing paths, break-away or dissolvable support structures to be printed with plastic nozzle.

COMPOSITE CARBON FIBER CCF

Anisoprint CCF is dual-matrix material, comprising a thermoset impregnated CCF reinforcing fiber and a thermoplastic binder matrix.

The thermoset matrix ensures good quality impregnation of a reinforcing fiber tow and good adhesion to different types of thermoplastic materials. Different thermoplastic binder materials can be used to achieved desired physical properties, thermal, chemical, environmental resistance or other properties. The material is formed in a process of coextrusion of the CCF reinforcing fiber and thermoplastic filament for insitu consolidation.

Composite fibre is used to reinforce the plastic during fabrication of the part, that makes the part lighter and harder than aluminium. The volume ratio of carbon fiber in final product is up to 25%. The Anisoprint CCF 1.5K is supplied in 750 m fiber spools which is sufficient to fabricate a fully composite 56х56х56mm cube or a fully composite A3-sized plate with a thickness of 2.9mm.
