  • Publication number: 20210260821
    Abstract: An additive manufacturing system is disclosed for use in fabricating a structure. The additive manufacturing system may include a support, and a print head operatively connected to and moveable by the support. The print head may include a housing, a supply module operatively mounted to the housing and configured to hold a supply of continuous reinforcement, an impregnation module operatively mounted to the housing and configured to wet the continuous reinforcement with a matrix, and a clamping module operatively mounted to the housing downstream of the supply module relative to movement of a reinforcement through the print head. The clamping module may be configured to selectively clamp the continuous reinforcement. The additive manufacturing system may also include a controller in communication with the support and the print head and configured to coordinate operations of the support and the print head to fabricate a three-dimensional structure.

  • Publication number: 20210086444
    Abstract: A system is disclosed for us in additively manufacturing a structure. The system may include a chamber, a support, and a print head connected to and moveable by the support. The print head may be configured to discharge a structural material into the chamber to form a structure. The system may also include a supply device configured to direct a support material into the chamber around the structure.

  • Publication number: 20200376759
    Abstract: A print head is disclosed for use in an additive manufacturing system. The print head may include an outlet configured to discharge a material, and a compacting device mounted to trail behind the outlet during movement of the print head in a normal direction. The print head may also include a spring configured to bias the compacting device against the material and to allow movement of the compacting device in a direction parallel with a discharge direction of the material through the outlet, and a locker configured to selectively lock a position of the compacting device relative to the outlet.

  • Publication number: 20200376758
    Abstract: An additive manufacturing system is disclosed for use in fabricating a structure. The additive manufacturing system may include a support, and a print head configured to wet a continuous reinforcement with a liquid matrix and discharge the wetted continuous reinforcement. The print head may be operatively connected to and moveable by the support during discharge. The additive manufacturing system may also include a matrix control mechanism configured to selectively adjust an amount of matrix on the continuous reinforcement being discharged from the print head.

  • Publication number: 20200238619
    Abstract: An additive manufacturing system is disclosed for use in fabricating a structure. The additive manufacturing system may include a support, and a print head configured to discharge a material and being operatively connected to and moveable by the support in a normal travel direction during material discharge. The print head may include a module located at a trailing side of the discharging material relative to the normal travel direction and being configured to compact the material and expose the material to a cure energy at a tool center point.

  • Publication number: 20200130296
    Abstract: A system is disclosed for additively manufacturing a composite structure. The system may include a support, and a print head connected to and moveable by the support. The print head may have a first tool center point associated with discharge of a first material, and a second tool center point associated with discharge of a second material that is a type different than the first material.
