Mantis Composites

Mantis Composites
Unlike other technologies, our process uses continuous carbon fiber to produce the strongest parts possible. By combining the full strength of carbon fiber with the geometric optimization attainable with our multi-axis printing capability, we can make parts far lighter than the best existing alternatives.

Profile Description

Carbon fiber’s amazing properties only work when the fibers are aligned in the direction a part is taking load in. By using a custom designed 5-axis machine we can use this property to produce parts that are individually optimized. By running carbon fiber only along load paths, we can create lighter, stiffer parts, minimize waste, and even introduce novel material properties for parts with specialized applications.

With an 17 inch diameter and 15 inch height*, our build volume can accommodate a majority of the parts that are currently difficult to make with composites. Our machine is capable of maintaining a dimensional accuracy of +/- .1mm (.004in), and features can be post-machined to even better tolerances.
*The maximum size of fully 5-axis reinforced parts is smaller by 2-3 inches in each dimension

GEOMETRIC OPTIMIZATION

At Mantis, we are creating an suite of tools that allow customers to upload, customize, and order parts in one simple step. Of course, we are always available for consultation on specialty orders.

Creating a high performance part is about more than just the geometry and the material. At Mantis, we are developing software that allows us to both predict and verify final part performance before the part ever leaves our facility. Each part is individually developed and qualified for its specific high-performance application. When your business is on the line, you can count on the performance of Mantis parts.
