Printing process

The print head which is attached to the Cartesian System stacks the concrete layer by layer. The required reinforcements for static loads are inserted to the robot between the printings of the individual layers. In order to give the concrete the necessary setting time, the printer moves to the next manufacturing sector, while the previously manufactured component grows numb.

The U-axis along the track motion is divided into different production sectors. With this system, finished components may already be outsourced while the printer is still creating the next components.

When the printer has printed the first component part in the last sector, it starts again in sector 1 with the printing of the second layer.

This process ensures that the existing layer withstands the pressure of the new layer.
