Track motion

The track motion transports the BIG 3D-Printer along the U-axis from one job to another. The cutting unit for the reinforcement is being pulled along, the concrete pumps are stationary.

Cartesian system

The Cartesian System is a development consisting of a three- and four strap carbon rod truss with aluminium nodes.

It is mounted on the track motion and moves the print head with the upmost precision in the X- and Y-axes.

Advancement of material

The reinforcement is being transported to the Cartesian System via a conveyor system. The concrete material is being transported with concrete pumps to the print head.
