Project Announcement: Improving Thermoset Composite Processes to Enhance Mechanical Performance of Additive Manufactured (AM) Parts
The U.S. Army is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to develop and demonstrate a process and system for inserting continuous fibers into a UV curable liquid resin and/or Additive Reactive Extrusion liquid resin while the part is printing during the AM process. The goal is to provide both commercial and military maintenance groups the roadmap for producing higher quality, more durable, and more readily available AM parts, closer to the point of need in austere and harsh environments.
