Project title: Innovative system for the production of caste-sized, large-scale components meeting the assumptions of a closed-loop economy
Project objective: The objective is to develop an autonomous, incremental manufacturing technology (3D printing and milling) for the production of caster large-size objects together with a control and quality control system. The material (similar to XPS) will be used to create moulds, spatial elements and moulds for filling with materials such as concrete. One of the key print products could be prefabricated walls with a concrete core in lost formwork, where the extruded material will be the form and insulation of the wall.
Planned effects: The solution being developed as part of the project will be a large-scale 3D printer moulder capable of printing XPS formwork with a high degree of freedom of shape and the properties of the building material itself. The system will enable both single-unit and batch production at the same time enabling easy and effective customisation of the manufactured range - on-demand production. Production will be assumed to be waste-free production, where the material that is temporarily wasted from machining will be reused in incremental manufacturing.
The solution will be targeted at construction companies, primarily those involved in the creation of prefabricated walls using the lost-cladding technology, but also other products such as architectural sculptures, composite products.
The result of the project will be an innovative (worldwide) technology enabling automation of building reinforced concrete structures and a prototype 3DCP printer with two systems - concrete printing and reinforcement.
- Stage 1. Innovative concrete 3D printing head (patent pending), with hopper, internal mixer, vibrator and stamping screw, which will significantly increase the efficiency of work and quality of prints.
- Stage 2. A system (also pending patent protection) for the automatic manufacture and placement of composite continuous reinforcement in a print.
- Stage 3. Development and integration of a prototype 3DCP printer for real-world operation with the ability to operate both heads - the first of its kind in the world.
- Stage 4. Certification of products and products planned for implementation.
As a result of the implementation of the new 3DCP printer, the printing of small-batch structural, utilitarian and decorative components will be cheaper and faster, with more freedom to design their shapes available. The customer groups will be architects, urban planners, construction companies, prefabrication companies and retail customers. Implementation will be through the sale/rental of equipment and provision of 3DCP printing services.
