Massivit 3D Printing Technologies, the leading provider of large-scale 3D printing systems announced that the Massivit 10000 additive manufacturing system, has been selected as winner of the 2022 IBEX Innovation Award in the category of ‘Boatbuilding Methods and Materials’. The Massivit 10000 is designed to manufacture molds for composite material components. This industry accolade reflects the marine sector’s demand for more advanced, automated manufacturing technologies that can significantly reduce the current two to four-week manual processes required to produce large molds and parts.
The Massivit 10000 dramatically simplifies and shortens the process for producing complex custom molds. By combining multiple cutting-edge technologies, they have created a tool that will significantly benefit any marine manufacturer working with composites. IBEX, The International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference, is the largest exhibition in North America for marine manufacturers, established almost 30 years ago. The Massivit 10000 is Massivit 3D’s second-generation line of printers. The printer operates using Cast in Motion technology, designed to directly print molds for composite material components as well as mandrels.
