VLAIO (Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship) supports REIN4CED in its search towards optimalisation of 3D-printed parts with composite materials.
Standard carbon fibre tubes offer a weight saving of ±60% compared to aluminium tubes. They are widely available and hence a cost-effective solution to reduce the weight of components. REIN4CED can 3D-print carbon fibre connections for these tube, which are both cost-effective and offer an additional weight-saving when connecting those tubes!
Our 3D print technology can be used to produce light and strong components which can be easily connected to other components through through the use of inserts.
