Windform 3D printed Orthosis hand
Next week the elite of the additive manufacturing community will ascend on Orlando, Florida for the SME’s annual RAPID event. One of those companies is CRP USA, which will display its latest Windform Additive Manufacturing solutions for motorsport, space and aerospace at the Orange County Convention Centre on the 17-19th May.
On booth #563, the North Carolina-based company will be exhibiting Windform GT 3D printed orthotics, designed and developed together with medical orthopaedist staff to assist hemiplegic patients and traumas alongside solutions such as the Intake Manifold, PrintSat, CAN-SAT Dispenser.
Intake Manifold, made in Windform SP, showcases Windform being used in a high performance
motorsports application. Also shows the durability, longevity, and toughness of the material. PrintSat (small satellite composed by card cage, propulsion unit, solar panels and made from Windform XT 2.0) shows off CRP USA work in aerospace. CAN-SAT Dispenser also made in Windform XT 2.0 is a dispenser for very small satellites and it is the result of a collaborative project between CRP USA and institution.
CRP’s Windform materials are strongly used in high-performing sectors for their mechanical properties and CRP USA is considered to be the right technological partner when it comes to top level additive manufacturing.
In it’s 26th year, RAPID 2016 will feature over 200 exhibitors and explore the future of the industry through keynotes, and conference presentations from industry leaders.
Last month, SME and TCT Group announced a strategic alliance that will see the organisations team up to produce the annual 3D manufacturing event from 2017. The new event, to be named RAPID + TCT, will result in an increased impact on the U.S. manufacturing industry, combining nearly 30 years of experience to accelerate the adoption of 3D technologies in the region.
