The Continuous Fibre Injection Process (CFIP) is the first technology based on reinforcing the part after the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process instead of during it. It consists on injecting the continuous fibres simultaneously with liquid resin inside tubular cavities in the part. After this, the part is cured so that the resin, once solidified, finally acts as a mechanical interface between the fibers and the rest of the part. This breakthrough approach provides the following disruptive advantages:
It allows to place the fibers in all directions following complex trajectories (also between printing layers).
It can reinforce parts made by any existing AM technology and material, including plastics, metals and ceramics.
It enables to integrally join different parts with fiber continuity between them, achieving an ultrahigh joining performance.
It allows the efficient manufacturing of large, multi-material and multi-process structures.
The CFIP Technology can add high value to products and structures through the following fields:
