Vertico has signed a partnership agreement with MAI International to distribute its construction 3D printers along with a range of 3D concrete printing specific accessories Both companies have worked hard over the past years to innovate in the field of 3D concrete printing and have established highly complementary positions
MAI International brings long-standing technical expertise in concrete material handling and continues to expand its product range to innovative applications. Vertico has expertise in robotic fabrication and aims to install turn-key solutions while developing PMC’s in concrete 3D printing. The Austrian company offers high-quality industrial products in the fields of 3D concrete printing, foam mortar production, mixing, grouting and conveying technology.
Like many other companies active in this area, Vertico has been growing rapidly. The Dutch company offers concrete printing solutions, including robots, pumps and accessories combined with proprietary software and material mix for a turnkey solution to concrete printing. Both of Vertico’s concrete printers are available for production, along with the company’s full range of services including 3D design, construction calculations, programming, realization, and transport.
The deal is particularly interesting as MAI has been specializing in creating equipment for modern construction projects specifically based on 3D concrete printing. While many startups have been focusing on building the 3D printers and many large construction companies have been developing the materials, MAI is one of the very first companies to focus on providing all the accessory process equipment that is necessary for any construction 3D printing project. This technology is revolutionizing the construction industry and quickly becoming an integral part of modern building projects.
MAI International GmbH has been at the forefront of developing equipment for use in 3D concrete printing applications. MAI’s range of 3D concrete printing accessories includes two main products. The MAI MULTIMIX-3D is a special purpose mortar mixing pump that sets new standards in process security thanks to its innovative water and dry material management system. This mobile mixing pump for 3D concrete printing offers a permanent and dependable material consistency flow rate that is adjustable from 2 to 30 l/min via an external interface. The MAI 2PUMP PICTOR-3D is a handy and powerful mortar pump with an external port for 3D concrete printing applications. It can cope with a maximum particle size of 2 mm and has a delivery rate of 0.5 to 5 liters per minute.
