Fortify is a Boston-based 3D printing company that has the goal to enable fabrication of composites with optimized microstructures

Fortify is a 3D printing company that has the goal to enable fabrication of composites with optimized micro-structures. The company was founded by Randall Erb, and Joshua Martin at Northeastern University, in Boston, Massachusetts, United States.

The company was established to bring optimized composites to engineers across the globe. They look to provide tooling, aerospace, and automotive applications. The company has patented a magnetic 3D printing process that creates optimized composites, and combines magnetics and digital light processing 3D printing to produce composite parts with ideal mechanical properties.

Fluxprint Technology is known for their additive manufacturing, and their method includes fibers that are magnetically aligned voxel by voxel to optimize the microstructure. The company decided to utilize 3D printing as a manufacturing tool as it allows faster lead times and is due to machined soft tooling. 3D printed mold tools enable designers to print and mold multiple iterations of a part and allows them to explore design until deciding on a final design.

There's been quite a bit of movement in the additive manufacturing space in recent months. If I had to pinpoint a reason, I would say that -- much like robotics (another space I follow fairly closely) -- the category has gotten a boost in interest from the pandemic. Medical applications are understandably of interest lately, [...]
