Composer A4 is a continuous carbon fiber professional desktop 3D printer powered by the proprietary, patent-pending Composite Fiber Coextrusion (CFC) technology as well as standard FFF 3D printing technology. The Composer A4 features a build area of 297 x 210 x140 mm and is a more compact version of its counterpart, the Composer A3. Both models allow producing optimized composite structures characterized by high physical and mechanical properties. Final parts are stronger and lighter than parts with similar properties produced with metal, thermoplastics or non-optimized composites. They are also cheaper to produce. 

Thanks to the advanced CFC technology, the printer is capable of reinforcing, solidifying and curing a variety of fiber-reinforced plastics in a one-step automated process. It is a closed-frame machine engineered with either a dual-nozzle print head with FFF extruder and a dual-nozzle print head featuring a CFC extruder. 

The image below demonstrates a neatly-looking fiber-reinforced clevis printed with the Composer A4. By successfully integrating the additive manufacturing technologies into its manufacturing system, a dairy company reduced the manufacturing downtime of clevis fixtures from 3 months to 6 hours. In addition, this part has an extended lifespan due to its resistance to peroxide hydrogen.

Print Quality 

The Composer A4 is a professional 3D printer that can print layers at 60 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. When printing with the FFF print head, it can reach a print speed of up to 80 mm/s. When using the CFC module, it reaches up to 10 mm/s. CFC continuous carbon fiber technology can print with a variety of thermoplastics, but it provides the best results when printing with PETG filament as a matrix. 

Dmitry Pavlenko’s team used the Composer A4 to produce a special buoyancy compensation lever. The lever has been printed with a carbon fiber-reinforced PETG. As you can see, this outstandingly durable part has a really smooth surface finish.

It supports two different print heads, FFF and CFC, with a dual-nozzle system. The CFC extruder includes a reinforcing fiber cutting device.

 

Materials

Anisoprint Composer A4 3D printer can work with filaments with a melting temperature of up to 270°C and a diameter of 1.75mm. Moreover, each extruder comes with its own fan for printing with PLA-type materials. The fans cool the model during printing, which reduces warping, stringing, and other issues. It lets you print with PLA, ABS, PETG, PA(Nylon), TPU, PC, ASA SBS, and CF/GF filled filaments.

The printer comes with either a heated glass build plate and an enclosed print chamber, which makes it reliably printing with ABS, Nylon, Polycarbonate and other temperature-sensitive filaments. The removable build plate can heat up to 120°C, while the nozzles can reach a temperature of 270°C. The enclosure keeps the printing temperature stable minimizing the risk of warping or shrinkage.

The Composer A4 is compatible with 1.5k and 3k Composite Carbon Fiber (CCF) and Composite Basalt Fiber (CBF). These reinforcing fibers can be used with PLA, ABS, PETG, PA, TPU, PC, ASA, fiber-filled and glass fiber-filled filaments. 

 

Build Volume

The Composer A4 has a build area of 11.7 x 8.3 x 5.5 inches (297 x 210 x 140 mm). It is more than enough for printing a single large part or simultaneous production of several small-sized parts.

 

Printer Controls

The printer is operated via a fitted 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen with a user-friendly interface. 

The print-ready models can be transferred from a USB-tethered computer or both via a USB stick and SD card. 

The Composer A4 comes integrated with the self-developed Anisoprint Aura software for both FFF and CFC 3D printing. The device is also compatible with Cura and Slic3r slicing software solutions. The proprietary software runs on Windows 7+. It is packed with several thoughtful features for easy print management. For each layer, it generates reinforcing fiber trajectories. It lets you easily regulate the reinforcement scheme to increase the final strength of the part. In addition, it creates support structures and provides a real-time preview of the final print.
