Massivit 3D Printing Technologies, a provider of large-scale 3D printing systems, has announced the launch of the Massivit 10000 additive manufacturing tooling system to be unveiled at the upcoming Jec World 2022 event in Paris from 3-5 May.

Visitors to Jec World can reserve a live demonstration of the Massivit 10000 and see a range of molds and parts at the Massivit 3D Hall 5, M46. The event will also provide an opportunity to secure limited-time pre-orders of the Massivit 10000. A press conference will be held at the Massivit 3D stand on Tuesday 3 May at 3 pm.

Designed to overcome recognized tooling bottlenecks in composites manufacturing, the Massivit 10000 automates and shortens conventional composites tooling processes that are slow, costly, wasteful, and heavily reliant on manual skilled labor. The 10000 leverages the company’s new cast-in-motion technology that enables complex molds, masters, mandrels, and prototypes to be directly 3D printed. It provides geometry freedom for highly efficient designs as well as digital accuracy. The technology is designed to serve a range of industries including marine, rail, automotive, defense, and aerospace as well as sporting goods, bath-ware, 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, TX. 17 preorders have been made to date – two of which include beta agreements with Israel-based company Kanfit (manufacturers of composite material parts for key players in the global aviation market) and US-based company
Lyons (specialists in luxury bath ware). Massivit 3D will deliver Massivit 10000 systems to customers starting in H2, 2022.

Massivit 3D’s cast-in-motion technology enables composites fabricators to shorten their tooling workflows from the traditional 19 steps down to 4 steps. It eliminates the need to produce an initial plug or master by directly printing and casting the mold using ultra-fast additive manufacturing combined with industrial-grade casting materials. This
cutting edge process shortens tooling time by 80% and offers a myriad of business benefits including a reduction of manual labor, a 90% decrease in labor-associated costs, a reduction of associated inventory and transportation, and a significant decrease in waste of expensive materials.

The Massivit 10000 brings to market the first 3D printed isotropic mold for composites manufacturing. As opposed to existing thermoplastic additive tooling systems, the Massivit 10000 utilizes high-performance thermoset-based materials to produce a single, uniform cast that results in a true isotropic mold. In addition, it provides molders with
casting materials that have highly predictable mechanical and thermal properties, a low coefficient of thermal expansion, and a high heat deflection temperature.
Massivit 3D’s chief executive officer, Erez Zimerman, stated, “We eagerly await this momentous occasion, marking a significant company milestone and injecting innovation into the composites manufacturing market. The composites tooling arena has long been held back by antiquated processes and technologies. It’s 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.”

The company’s second-generation technology, cast-in-motion, is based on its successful gel dispensing printing technology that has provided a new league of high-speed, large-scale 3D printing to customers across more than 40 countries.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
