HP3D - Additive manufacturing of large parts

Production system for large plastic parts
© Fraunhofer IFF

A high production system that additively manufactures large parts out of a wide range of plastics is being developed in the ongoing project HP3D funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (funding code: 02P14A025).

The system additively manufactures large parts with dimensions of up to 2000 x 2000 x 1000 mm.

Build rates of up to 5 kg/h makes additive manufacturing of models and molds productive and cost effective, especially in model, tool and die making.

A buoyant kayak and a sailboat helm wheel were the first demonstrators designed and manufactured.
