ADVANCE IN LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN
25. September 2018 -
Automotive, (aero)space, medical and other industries are restricted in their use of carbon composites for lightweight construction because of the expensive and time-consuming manufacturing process. 9T Labs, founded by ETH Zürich graduates, simplifies the process by bringing to market a 3D printer that processes carbon composites. This drastically reduces the production costs and also offers additional degrees of freedom for the design process. Areas of application include satellites, drones and prosthetics. 9T Labs is supported by the European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre.
