Free Form Fibers  Free Form Fibers (FFF) is the sole producer of “laser-printed” Silicon Carbide, Boron, and Boron Carbide fibers, among a wide range of materials, in the world. FFF's unique process harnesses the flexibility of additive manufacturing and the purity of Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) in a highly flexible production system for hundreds of simultaneous continuous fibers. If a CVD precursor exists for a given material, it is likely that Free Form Fibers can produce fiber from it. Filaments are small diameter, homogeneous, without a dissimilar core, and can be hundreds of feet long. Diameters can be customized from 15 to 80 microns and modulated along the length. Highly uniform Pyrolytic Carbon and Boron Nitride interphase coatings have been demonstrated with subsequent coating with Silicon Carbide. As with fiber, if a CVD precursor exists for a given material, it is likely that Free Form Fibers can coat its fibers with that material. Fibers are available in tapes of parallel continuous filaments appropriately sized for CMC applications.  202
