Abstract

Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) manufacturing represents often an expensive, time-consuming, small-scale production due to products and components characterized by complex geometric properties. In the field of orthopedic products individual molds, usually made of metal alloys or plaster, are necessary to shape the contour of the components. The presented case study focuses on individually manufactured masks for post-operative treatment of uncomplicated midfacial fractures that are frequent and typical injuries in popular contact sports like soccer or
handball. To improve the costly process of CFRP production of individually manufactured masks, this paper describes the advantages of the combination of optical metrology (i.e. 3D-scanning) and additive manufacturing (i.e. 3D-printing). Therefore, the conventional process chain consisting of
the main process steps molding (master pattern), casting (mold), CFRP laminating, curing, cutting and final assembly is replaced by 3D-scanning (instead of master pattern), followed by the revision of the CAD-model (to prevent cutting efforts), 3D-printing (mold), CFRP laminating, curing and final assembly. Summarizing, this case study on manufacturing of carbon fiber reinforced plastic orthopedics shows that the combination of innovative manufacturing technologies opens up new possibilities to increase the efficiency in craft based manufacturing.
