The present paper focuses on the use of several additive manufacturing (AM) techniques for tooling manufacturing for composite parts production. A geometry that prevents mandrel removal is selected and it is analyzed in a real industrial environment for composites production using autoclave molding. The use of two different AM mandrels is evaluated: fused deposition modeling and liquid crystal display. The results are analyzed in terms of composites part quality, processing time and final part cost.

Abstract

The present paper focuses on the use of several additive manufacturing (AM) techniques for tooling manufacturing for composite parts production. A geometry that prevents mandrel removal is selected and it is analyzed in a real industrial environment for composites production using autoclave molding. The use of two different AM mandrels is evaluated: fused deposition modeling and liquid crystal display. The results are analyzed in terms of composites part quality, processing time and final part cost.
