Anisoprint is known for its 3D printing systems for manufacturing continuous fiber-reinforced plastic parts that can substitute metal ones in aerospace and engineering. In collaboration with Jacobs University, Anisoprint will establish a research environment centered around the brand’s proprietary Continuous Fiber Coextrusion (CFC) technology on the campus in Bremen, Germany. Founded in 2001, Jacobs University is a private, English-language campus university and part of the global Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) ecosystem.
Creating meaningful connections with universities by providing a leading-edge research infrastructure is central to Anisoprint’s mission. As part of this agreement Anisoprint will relocate its research and development (R&D) team to Bremen and set up a lab with state-of-the-art equipment on the campus of Jacobs University. Along with developing new materials, improving processes, and design methods, the team will also contribute to educational activities and technology training for students, both from Jacobs University and SIT.
The collaboration will facilitate cross-learning, knowledge sharing, and best practice exchange in multiple research fields. Jacobs University and SIT students will get the opportunity to explore educational resources, participate in training programs and experiment with cutting edge 3D printing technology through access to the lab. With Anisoprint hosting different thesis projects and internships, students will also benefit from new career opportunities within a fast-growing technology area.
“This agreement marks the beginning of a long-term collaboration in research, teaching, and knowledge transfer in a highly innovative and disruptive technology environment”, said Jacobs University President Professor Fabio Pammolli. “It is a milestone in the path of Jacobs University in its ambition to become one of the Top 15 global young universities with a focus in key areas such as Data Science for Business, Quantum Computing and Technologies, Advanced Materials, and Modeling of Complex Systems. Additionally to the educational benefits, it brings great value to the whole economic area of Bremen.”
Commenting on the agreement, Fedor Antonov, CEO at Anisoprint, said: “Our goal has always been to bring the cutting edge of research to the market. The City of Bremen is a globally well-known hotspot for aerospace and polymer science. We’re at the right place and the right time. Becoming a part of Jacobs University`s excellent research ecosystem will catalyze our future research activities.”
Anisoprint is a Luxembourg-based hardware start-up producing 3D Printers that allow to manufacture continuous fiber reinforced plastic parts that can substitute metal ones in aerospace, engineering and many other areas along with cutting costs and increasing productivity.
Continuous Fiber Coextrusion (CFC), the technology that was developed and patented by the company, allows to create lattice structures, which is the key for multimaterial optimization and production. Such parts are lighter, stronger and cheaper than their metal analogs.
