This week I welcome Joshua Martin, CEO of Fortify on the showto discuss his company and some of the work they are doing in the world of Digital Composite Manufacturing.
Fortify is a company that was founded on research by Randall Erb and Joshua Martin at Northeastern University. Their goal was to enable quick and seamless fabrication of composites with optimized microstructures.
Through their research, they invented magnetic 3D printing, or Fluxprint. They established Fortify to bring optimized composites to engineers across the globe.
Today, Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM) has found success in tooling, aerospace, and automotive applications. Now, Fortify is a leader in optimized composites. DCM has transformed the DNA of materials, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in engineering.
Fluxprint is a patented magnetic 3D printing process that creates optimized composites. It combines magnetics and digital light processing (DLP) 3D printing to produce composite parts with ideal mechanical properties. As a part is additively manufactured, fibers are magnetically aligned voxel by voxel to optimize the microstructure. High-performance components are created significantly faster and at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional manufacturing.
