Massivit 3D Printing Technologies won 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 is the third award granted for the Massivit 10000 to date, having been selected as winner for the 2021 ACE Award for Composites Excellence by the American Composites Manufacturers Association in the category “Manufacturing: Equipment and Tooling Innovation.” The system was also Highly Commended in the “3D Printing Hardware” category at the TCT 3Sixty Awards in the UK in June 2022.
According to the company, 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.
IBEX, the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference, is the largest exhibition in North America for marine manufacturers. The annual IBEX Innovation Awards are managed by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in conjunction with the IBEX show. Ten companies were selected as winners for specific marine categories from a total 70 competing companies.
The Massivit 10000 is Massivit 3D’s second-generation line of printers. The printer operates using Cast-In-Motion (CIM) technology, designed to directly print molds for composite material components as well as mandrels, plugs, tools, jigs and fixtures that serve industrial manufacturing companies.
The Massivit 10000 technology delivers full-scale parts within a few days. In addition to widespread use of our first-generation Gel Dispensing Printing technology across various industries, the Massivit 10000 aptly serves the maritime industry as one of the first arenas to benefit from this new technology.”
