CRP Technology’s Windform carbon composite materials have been used to manufacture the Tundra-M 3D-printed drone prototype.
Tundra-M, created by Hexadrone, is a customisable drone for defence and rescue applications. Hexadrone has carried out the testing needed for the completion of the R&D phase of the drone, including flight, assembly/disassembly and landing tests.
Tundra-M is Hexadrone’s first fully modular, easy-to-use drone for multi-purpose tasks, suited for extreme weather conditions thanks to rugged, waterproof design. The rapidly detachable arms make the Tundra-M extremely flexible. The drone’s body was manufactured using CRP Technology’s Windform SP and its arms with Windform XT 2.0 carbon fibre reinforced composite 3D printing materials.
Tundra-M will be showcased at Eurosatory 2018 defence exhibition in Paris on 11-15 June.

At the 2019 JEC Composites show, 12-14 March 2019 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, CGTech will demonstrate how advanced programming strategies and simulation can lead to better composite parts.
Researchers from Defence Science and Technology (DST) and USQ are working on a three-year collaborative project to develop next-generation repairs for composite aircraft structures.
Accepting challenges and creating solutions - these are the goals of NETZSCH Research Partnerships.
