Schunk Carbon Technology adopts Anisoprint composite 3D printing

The company is leveraging Anisoprint's Composer 3D printer, software and materials

Anisoprint, a company based in Russia and Luxembourg specializing in composite fiber 3D printing, has revealed one of its newest customers: Schunk Carbon Technology. The company, a division of the Germany-based Schunk Group, is a global leader in the development, manufacture and application of carbon and ceramic solutions.

Schunk Carbon Technology recently installed Anisoprint’s 3D printing technology, and specifically its Composer 3D printer, which is based on the company’s patented composite fiber co-extrusion (CFC) technology. The carbon and ceramic solutions company is reportedly using the composite additive manufacturing technology to accelerate the development and production of custom tools.

“We are using the Anisoprint Composer for printing demonstrators and tools for production,” commented Gotthard Nauditt, R&D Engineer Composites at Schunk Carbon Technology. “The Composer does a good job! It works precise and reliable and together with its slicing software ‘Aura’ it forms a capable tool.”

Anisoprint’s Aura software makes it easy for users to prepare 3D models for printing using its CFC technology (as well as more standard FFF processes). In short, the software preps the model by generating reinforcing fiber trajectories in each layer of the print. It also allows users to adjust and control the reinforcement scheme so that parts can meet strength and weight requirements.

In addition to the 3D printer and software, Schunk is also utilizing Anisoprint’s dedicated materials, which include CCF (Composite Carbon Fiber) and the recently released CBF (Composite Basalt Fiber). The combination of the printer, materials and software are enabling Schunk to produce custom tools that are as strong as, lighter and cheaper than their metal counterparts.

Schunk Group manufactures construction components from carbon/graphite, carbon compounds, silicon carbide and quartz for high-temperature, automotive and small motor applications.
