“This award is a testament to the advancement of additive manufacturing in the composites industry. Fortify is on the way to democratizing composites for a number of different application spaces,” said Fortify CEO Josh Martin. “We are honored to be recognized for the role that Fortify is playing to integrate these two growing verticals. There is tremendous opportunity for the composites industry to capitalize on additive, and we are excited to continue breaking ground in tooling and production applications.”

According to the ACMA, the award is given to the equipment, tooling, production aid, or software that is designed to improve manufacturing production, environmental sustainability or product quality and performance in composites manufacturing. This year, the award went to Fortify for its DCM (Digital Composite Manufacturing) platform. The technology platform improves performance by aligning fibers optimally throughout parts.

Fortify was also a finalist for two additional categories including the CAMX Unsurpassed Innovation Award and the CAMX Combined Strength Award.

Fortify is currently validating applications with leaders in the automotive and aerospace industries and will launch its beta program for machine hardware in the first half of 2020. For more information visit

About Fortify

Fortify is transforming the 3D printing industry with its patented DCM (Digital Composite Manufacturing) platform. DCM delivers new levels of additively manufactured part performance by introducing aligned reinforcing fibers. The platform combines magnetics and DLP (digital light processing) to produce custom microstructures in high-resolution 3D printed composite parts. This allows engineers to design and print parts with material properties that are optimized for specific functionality. The company is currently focused on applications from injection mold tooling to high performance end-use parts. Founded in 2016 and based in Boston, Fortify delivers faster lead times, lower costs and superior materials compared to traditional manufacturing processes. For more information, visit
