Riley Reese, cofounder of Arevo Labs, will speak about additive manufacturing with composites during the Carbon Fiber 2015 conference, happening December 8-10 in Knoxville, Tennessee. The event focuses on new developments in carbon fiber and its applications in the aerospace, medical and other industries.

Arevo Labs, based in San Francisco, California, has developed an additive manufacturing method it calls reinforced filament fusion. This process involves 3D printing with high-performance polymers that are reinforced with carbon fiber, glass fiber or carbon nanotubes. Using the company’s custom software, it is possible to control the orientation of the fibers during deposition. This capability, in combination with a robotic five-axis platform, enables continuous printing even along curved surfaces. See the video above for a quick overview of this technology (part of a longer talk on medical AM delivered by Reese at the SME: Silicon Valley Annual Conference 2015).

The talk will take place Thursday, December 10, at 11:30 a.m. Click here to register for the conference, and use code AMDEAL at check out for $150 off registration.
