FabricThermoPrint Technology

FABTHEP aims to realise thermal fabric printing for PEEK reinforced carbon composites where individual shape is determined late in the production chain.

The challenge is

  • use Additive Manufacturing (FDM)
  • 3D print patterns of PEEK material onto Carbon Fabrics at a layer thickness of 10 microns.

The aim of the experiment is to Increase the mechanical performance of Carbon Fiber Composites by enhancing the interlaminar fracture toughness.
