Press release from the 23th of July 2021
Multistation announces the signing of an agreement with AREVO for the distribution of continuous carbon fiber composite parts In France.
Multistation SAS and AREVO, a manufacturer for industrial 3D printers, agreed to the collaboration as of July 2021. Multistation will now distribute AREVO’s large-format composite parts in France.
AREVO offers a printing service for Nylon-12-with continuous Carbon Fibers (50% fiber volume content) parts. With a maximum print volume of 1000x1000x830 mm, it is now possible to print large-format composite parts in continuous fibers. AREVO uses a DED extrusion head: The filament is treated by a laser, then compressed by a roller, before being deposited on the printing bed. Thanks to this technology, the final parts have reliable mechanical properties, while ensuring a considerable mass gain compared to parts printed with metal.
AREVO’s AQUA System machine, with its patented DED printing hardware, high-performance thermoplastic materials, and proprietary software is a real feat in terms of production of composite parts. It’s capable of printing large and lightweight parts in popular verticals like aerospace, drones, automobile, e-mobility, heavy industry as well as in consumer/sporting goods.
AREVO set up a printer farm in Vietnam to ensure the mass production of composite parts. Their engineers carry out the feasibility study, development, benchmarking and production of parts in series.
Founded in 1987, Multistation is an independent provider of disruptive, advanced digital & additive manufacturing services that offers a wide range of services and 3D printers intended for research, education and industry.
AREVO is an American company that develops efficient and lightweight continuous carbon fiber parts manufactured on a large scale. With its headquarters in Silicon Valley and a production center in Vietnam, AREVO is reinventing the way composite parts are 3D printed.
