Selective Cement Activation

SCA

The novel SCA process is similar to binder jetting in the manufacturing process. A layer of ECONIT powder is applied in the building chamber via a roller. An activator is sprayed onto the powder from a bar with fine nozzles, which binds the material along the object cross-section. Then the next powder layer is applied and the process is repeated. The thickness of the layer is 2 mm. After completion of the construction process, all the material must rest for 24 hours to harden. The ECONIT base material can bind a wide variety of aggregates, even in large quantities, and gains different material properties from each material admixture.

Closing the Digital Chain

Designs are transferred to reality by the press of a button. By using powder bed technology, we achieve real freedom of form, exactly like planned.
This is the basis for innovative design solutions that can make a real difference for our built environment.

0-waste production

The powder bed gets reused for later batches, while finished parts can be used in the raw or undergo surface treatment.

A Hungry Beast

The faster the system – the more food it needs. Our machine can devour the volume of our 12 silos easily in 10 days.

Material Magic

Econit is a novel sustainable material system at the intersection of additive manufacturing and building construction.
As a base material, econit can bind a wide variety of aggregates, even in large quantities, and through targeted admixing gains a variety of aesthetic, functional, and technical properties.
Examples of aggregates are sand, brick chippings, expanded clay and expanded glass granulate, fireclay, recycled earth, and natural materials such as wood chips.
