9T Labs AG, a leader in the digital, automated production of continuous fiber components, is set to present at CAMX 2023 from October 30th to November 2nd, in Atlanta, where the company will showcase its innovative Red Series Additive Fusion Technology (AFT) platform. Highlights include an aircraft overhead bin pin bracket, motorcycle rear suspension rocker arms, and a luxury watch case. Attendees can view 9T Labs’ advanced equipment in operation at the booth.

Additionally, 9T Labs will announce a strategic partnership with Drexel University, a respected Philadelphia-based institution known for its pioneering research and state-of-the-art facilities.

Moreover, 9T Labs and its long-term collaborator, Purdue University, will compete in CAMX 2023’s awards segment. Their collaborative project on an aerospace overhead bin pin bracket has earned notable attention.

9T Labs to unveil latest innovations at CAMX 2023, including Additive Fusion Technology (AFT), and strategic industry collaborations. “In addition to demonstrating at the show how our innovative solutions can make real and measurable impacts across many different industries, we also look forward to discussing the results of our latest important collaborations to further help the adoption of this new composites manufacturing technique,” said Yannick Willemin, Business Development Director at 9T Labs.

Sustainability

9T Labs’ Red Series AFT is designed to help clients meet sustainability goals by setting a new standard for durable, lightweight components, economically produced with reduced waste. This comprehensive manufacturing platform combines specialized software, hardware, and eco-friendly processes, outperforming conventional composite manufacturing techniques. At the exhibition, they will introduce their first Sustainability Report, highlighting their dedication to climate neutrality.

A prime example of their sustainability focus is the creation of upcycled pin brackets for commercial airplane overhead bins. Present in large quantities on airplanes, these brackets support lighter aircraft, thus decreasing fuel consumption. Through the efficient design and hybrid manufacturing using discontinuous fiber bulk molding compound (BMC) platelets, continuous fiber preforms, and AFT, the weight and cost of these parts are halved compared to machined aluminum. Furthermore, the thermoplastic composites used are more recyclable than thermoset composites, marking a greener composite manufacturing method. These brackets also exhibit increased strength, consistency, and enhanced durability.
