Simple printing technologies have been turned into powerful manufacturing tools that are already being used to make products that were previously only imaginable. Electrophotography has been developed and applied together with unique powder materials to manufacture controlled gradient optical components including waveguides and lenses and to enable dry powder printing for node lines in the manufacture of honeycomb airframe structures. The equipment, materials and processes to stabilize carbon fiber composite webs for other composite applications.
