Cellular Fabrication: A New Framework for Construction-Scale Composite 3D Printing
Branch Technology has invented Cellular Fabrication, or C-Fab®, which combines industrial robotics, geometric gridding algorithms, and a novel "Freeform" extrusion technology that allows printed material to solidify in free space without supports. Branch prints ultralight and strong construction components of any geometry with this technique.
Growth Based Design Optimization of 3D Printed Quasi-Isotropic Chopped & Continuous Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic Composites
Desktop Metal’s “Fiber” product is a commercially available 3D printer of chopped and continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite materials. Our proposed solution is to leverage material advancements that provide more isotropic material properties, as well as software advancements that enable design optimization of 3D printed composite parts.
Automated Fiber Optic Connector Inspection and Cleaning
Inspection and cleaning of optical devices, from single ferrules to connectors such as VITA and D38999. Flexible, highly automated systems, with multiple types optimized for both production and field use. Currently used in manufacturing, assembly, depot and operational sustainment applications for MIL-Aero and commercial aerospace, Telecom and Datacom markets.
Catalyst for Improved Pot Life and Cure Time
Addition of 2,4-pentanedione to metal catalyzed 2-component polyurethane coating systems is a proven method to increase pot life. The level of pot life extension varies depending on the metal catalyst. A unique aluminum-based catalyst was designed to provide optimized pot life and cure properties when used with 2,4-pentanedione.
