Automated Tooling for Composite Materials Manufacturing

 

The Massivit 10000 is designed to overcome the bottlenecks of composite tooling by directly printing custom molds.

 

 

The Massivit 10000 empowers composites fabricators to digitally produce complex, custom molds within a matter of days, instead of weeks. Based on Massivit 3D’s Cast-In-Motion (CIM) technology, the Massivit 10000 combines ultra-fast, additive manufacturing with high-performance, thermoset casting materials to enable automated tooling for composites.

WHY THE MASSIVIT 10000?

MTB Workflow
Large tools & molds traditionally used for producing fiber-reinforced composite parts are expensive, slow-to-build, wasteful, and require extensive manual skilled labor. The Massivit 10000 brings to market enormous time- and cost-saving benefits for the manufacturing of large tooling:

  • Shorten production time of molds by 80%
  • Save up to 90% of manual labor
  • Significantly reduce tool costs
  • Simplify production, achieve higher yield
  • Simplify supply chain and reduce required stocks
  • Reduce waste of expensive materials

 

HOW THE MASSIVIT 10000 WORKS

  • An outer sacrificial shell is 3D printed with a water-breakable gel using Massivit 3D’s Gel Dispensing Printing Technology (GDP).
  • A thermoset epoxy material – that has high mechanical and thermal properties – is cast into that shell, forming an isotropic mold.
  • Once the 3D printed tool is immersed in plain water, the sacrificial shell crumbles away, leaving the desired mold, ready to use.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES

  • Design freedom allows mold production of function-oriented, intricate geometries
  • Better and faster tool design cycle – including many features – reduces iterations
  • CAD part to CAD mold design enables improved accuracy, consistency and higher reliability
  • True isotropy as well as high mechanical and thermal properties at eleated temperatures
