Our company gets calls every week from people and companies that are interested in knowing more about the new industry of 3D Concrete Printing. People are intrigued by the possibilities, but the industry is so new. They have lots of questions; and the more questions that are answered, the more new ones they discover.
The truth is that concrete printing is going to revolutionize construction in a way that we havent seen since the invention of the tractor. Our parent company manufactures robotics so we understand as well as most the changes before us. Automation is coming and those who embrace it will discover distinct advantages over their competition. These are the pioneers that are on the forefront of technology and their companies will lead the day moving forward. The opportunities are endless. From printing fountains and statues, to decorative dencing, monuments, and of course homes and warehouses. This is a new industry but it will evolve very quickly in numerous directions.
The increase in the demand for more housing is due to the increasing population. Another factor is the result of a natural calamity like fire or hurricane. Construction 3D printing seems to hold the solution to the housing problem every country faces. Looking for a3D house printer for saleto address these problems? Youre on the right place!
With 3D printer home construction, the process is guaranteed to be fast and efficient without sacrificing the quality of the structure. Whats more, the 3D printed house cost is substantially lower compared to the cost of manually constructing one. What used to be a long and laborious procedure, now seems to be able to achieve the same, or arguably better, results in a shorter amount of time.
From printing fountains and statues, to decorative fencing, monuments, and of course homes and warehouses. This is a new industry but it will evolve very quickly in numerous directions.
We recommend that before giving us a call, you take a moment and read some of the history and information below that you should find helpful.
Concrete Printing Is it a new industry?
As the world is slowly learning about 3D Printed Castles, and similar videos that are beginning to go viral. Entrepreneurs all over the world are both fascinated and enamored with thoughts of potential possibilities. There is no doubt that this technology will change construction forever, but as thousands of curious prospects begin to come in its becoming obvious that the cost to educate the public is going to be extensive. Everyone has so many questions but no one is really talking.
At first glance the idea of printing concrete seems easy, after all everyone has seen a 3D printer or CNC router tables; so where is the real mystery? As hundreds are anxious to simulate what theyve seen on YouTube, they do so with a very naive approach.
The idea of moving concrete with a computer controller isnt hard at all. Anyone with a CNC router table can rig up a funnel and some sprinkler pipe to simulate most of the that videos were beginning to see. And 90% quickly discover that the real mystery is in controlling and finishing the mud. Most of the people we speak to are fascinated by the idea, but nearly everyone dislikes the layer by layer look of the finished product. Even still, the idea of plastering the finished product is a viable solution, but the preference would be the ability to finish as you go and eliminate even more expense in an unnecessary step.
So while many CNC companies are just getting around to pouring their first bucket of mud through a funnel connected to a CNC table, and discovering the challenges of working with material that changes every minute. The real players are already working to engineer a way to provide a finish that doesnt require a crew of plasterers to come behind and make the finished product look good.
So even if you have a thousand hours to waste on figuring out the formula for mixing the right mud that will support itself without turning into a flat mess or falling over when trying to cantilever the third and fourth pass. The next step requires a team of engineers to design a troweling feature that can follow the printed path and rotate with every turn. This is where others generally lose interest because it requires a competent group of software and mechanical engineers that understand the dynamics of 5-axis robotics as well as the structural characteristics of building with mortar.
The Germans lead the pack right now in the industry, but they arent interested in selling what they have already built. Their business model is to provide services rather than sell their printing machine. Several Chinese companies are trying to cash in also, but to date; they havent shown anything more than pushing some mortar out of a 2-axis CNC table. All they have accomplished is linear printing rather than 3D printing as evidenced by their videos. The group that started most of this with the 3D printed castle is ahead of most, but still, have no solution for the undesirable finish that everyone is concerned about
Those that are a year or two into this know enough to recognize the challenges of managing a mechanical device that can rotate every corner and move in a manner that does not knock down the work that has been done in an attempt to trowel as-you-go; this is the real goal.
So now that weve shared a view of where this industry is at, lets take a look at who we are.
Our parent company,ITbotics, produces and pick and place robotics for industrial manufacturing as well as custom automation assembly systems for companies all around the world.
A year ago a client commissioned us to build a 3D mortar printer for printing statues and monuments. Our core competency was in building large-format XYZ systems as well as multi axis robotics automation so the contract didnt seem that out of line. However, printing mortar proved to be much more different than printing plastics, which we soon discovered.
A year later, weve discovered that companies are as far along as they say, but with the advent of our trowel as-you-go finishing system, we lead the market in 3D mortar printing.
We are currently under contract for three different types of concrete printing machines. We do not pre-build because so far, everyone has specific needs, and with the size of these machines, it would be impossible to show them. We approach each contract as we do our custom automation contracts.
Tell us what you want, the size you need, and any other special requests such as continual mixing batch plants, and we will quote the job. If you accept, we provide a production agreement and schedule your contract. A deposit of 35% is required at signing, 35% at mid-mark and the remaining balance upon completion.
So from here, the first thing to do is torequesta scope of work questionnaire. Once we get the answers back, we will be able to give you a formal quote.
Feel free tocontact usby phone if you have additional questions that we havent covered. We look forward to talking with you soon.
Technology is rapidly developing, and the future of 3D printing may already be assured within some areas of the construction industry. By increasing efficiency and reducing pollution and waste, and offer new made housing solutions worldwide, concrete printing could transform construction. It could also play a significant role in the quick build of low-cost housing in poor areas and those affected by disasters.
One of the most distinctive design features of the concrete printed houses is its portability that it can be moved anywhere you want. The key design benefit of 3D modeling and printing in the building industry, is the ability to print complicated/detailed designs and custom-designed homes would become more accessible. Our vision is that we bring houses to the ordinary people and to make houses more affordable. We know the need for houses, more people dont have a proper place where they can sleep, even the victims of typhoon, earthquake and fire, they cant afford to make house instantly. 3D Printing Technology has enormous potential, because it requires no wages and no rest periods, and can produce identical designs in a very short time frame. This could help government and construction companies to rapidly build cheap houses, leading to a possible decrease of homeless people.
