Massivit 10000

Flam3D member Massivit 3D launches its Massivit 10000 in Paris

Massivit 3D aims to transform composite molding production with the launch of its Massivit 10000 Additive Tooling System

Flam3D member Massivit 3D Printing Technologies, a provider of large-scale 3D printing systems, has announced the launch of the Massivit 10000 additive manufacturing tooling system which will be unveiled at the upcoming JEC World 2022 event in Paris from 3-5 May. Visitors to JEC World can book a live demonstration of the Massivit 10000 and view a range of moulds and parts at the Massivit 3D stand (Hall 5, M46) at the show.

What is the Massivit 10000?

Designed to solve recognised bottlenecks in composite manufacturing, the Massivit 10000 automates and shortens conventional composite tooling processes that are slow, expensive, often wasteful and also rely heavily on skilled manual labour. The 10000 uses the company’s new Cast-In-Motion technology, which allows complex moulds, dies, mandrels and prototypes to be 3D printed directly. It offers geometry freedom for highly efficient designs and digital accuracy. The technology is designed for a wide range of industries, including marine, rail, automotive, defence and aerospace, as well as sports equipment, bath products and furniture.

The Massivit 10000 additive tooling system was selected as a winner of the prestigious ACE Award for Composites Excellence by the American Composites Manufacturers Association at the CAMX 2021 event in Dallas. To date, 17 pre-orders have been made – two of which include beta agreements with Israel-based Kanfit (manufacturers of composite parts for key players in the global aerospace market) and US-based Lyons (specialists in luxury bath products). Massivit 3D will deliver Massivit 10000 systems to customers starting in quarter 2, 2022.

Casting Between Sacrificial Walls

Efficiency of Cast-In-Motion technology

Massivit 3D’s Cast-In-Motion technology enables composite manufacturers to shorten their tooling workflows from the traditional 19 steps to 4 steps. It eliminates the need to produce an initial plug or master by printing and casting the mould directly using high-speed additive manufacturing combined with industrial-grade casting materials. This advanced process cuts tooling time by 80% and offers a host of business benefits, including a reduction in manual labour, a 90% drop in labour-related costs, a reduction in associated inventory and transport, and a significant reduction in the waste of expensive materials.

The Massivit 10000 brings to market the first 3D printed isotropic mould for composite production. Unlike existing thermoplastic additive tooling systems, the printer uses high-quality thermoset materials to produce a single, uniform mould that results in a truly isotropic mould. In addition, it provides moulders with casting materials with highly predictable mechanical and thermal properties, a low coefficient of thermal expansion and a high heat deflection temperature.

Launch at JEC World 2022

Massivit 3D’s CEO, Erez Zimerman, said, “We are eagerly anticipating this momentous occasion, which marks an important milestone for the company and injects innovation into the composites manufacturing market. The composite tooling market has long been held back by outdated processes and technologies. It is high time to facilitate digital transformation in this market and we are proud to bring the relevant know-how, expertise and innovation to the table for that purpose.”
