SCA


Selective Cement Activation

Top Speed with High Precision

To keep costs down, we had to achieve an intense performance goal.
Our system today can fabricate a volume of 10m³ (one printing job) in 6 hours, which is by far the most high-performance 3D-printer in the world, without even considering the resolution of up to 1 millimeter.
Downtime between jobs is almost nullified, as build platforms are changed in an instant.

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.

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.
