COMPOSITE PARTS ROBUST ENOUGH TO REPLACE MACHINED METAL
Continuous Filament Fabrication (CFF) is the method with which fiber reinforced
composites are 3D printed. Continuous fibers are extruded layer-by-layer similarly to
FFF processes. The end result being stronger end-use parts.

Continuous Fiber Fabrication (CFF) is a term for the material and 3D printing process used to make composite parts.
CFF operates in this way. The printer uses two print nozzles. One nozzle operates like a typical extrusion process; it lays down a plastic filament that forms the outer shell and the internal matrix of the part. The second nozzle deposits a continuous strand of composite fiber (made with carbon, fiberglass, or Kevlar) on every layer. This continuous strands of composite fibers inside 3D printed parts adds strength to the built object that is comparable to parts made of metal.
Reliable composite materials for every stage in the production cycle.
