ComposiTIC, in collaboration with Coriolis Composites, handled the thermoplastic part of the project, carrying out the following tasks:

  • Design and manufacture of thermoplastic wire dispensing heads (filament and granulated types) and installation on a 6-axis robotic arm
  • Creation of the software component for generating the triaxial trajectories required for over-moulding a curved surface
  • Development, optimisation and validation of the robotised removal process through an experimental plan including printing tests, production of prototype parts and mechanical tests.
