Boston-based additive manufacturing start-up and leader in Digital Composite Manufacturing, Fortify has announced recently a seed round of USD 2.5M with strategic funding from Neotribe Ventures, Prelude Ventures, Mainspring Capital, Ocean Azul Partners, and McCune Capital.
Fortify’s patented Fluxprint technology combines magnetics and digital light processing (DLP) 3D printing to produce composite parts with ideal mechanical properties, tailored reinforcement and geometric freedom. The company has established itself as an innovator in Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM). Recently they have developed the first ever high-resolution, fiber-reinforced DLP additive manufacturing platform, which includes the patented Fluxprint hardware, innovative materials and INFORM generative design software. With this latest funding round, the team has also more than doubled in size, enabling new capabilities for innovation and partnership development.
In addition, Fortify’s team has launched two resins, with one being the strongest resin available on the market. By pairing high-performance engineering resins with specialty additives, Fortify utilizes DCM to produce the strongest resin available on the market. Fortify’s patented hardware and software processes allow control over the alignment within each printed part – leading to better performance without sacrificing cost or design flexibility.
