Setforge presents its Epither process
On 6, 7 and 8 April, Setforge participated in the first VIRTUAL AIR SHOW organised by the Aerospace cluster Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.
During this virtual show, an exclusive webinar was presented on the EPITHER process, an innovative solution for shaping long fibre and thermoplastic composites.
Combining 3D printing and hot compression, EPITHER allows to obtain "massive" composite parts with superior mechanical characteristics and with a very important weight saving compared to steel, aluminium or titanium solutions. This process opens up the possibility of large-scale use of composite parts for critical applications.
During this Webinair, Damien Félix, EPITHER project manager, presents the characteristics and possibilities of the process as well as the different applications for the aeronautical sector.
