Massivit 3D Printing Technologies Ltd., a provider of large-scale 3D printing systems based on unique gel dispensing technology, will unveil the Massivit 10000 additive manufacturing tooling system to the European public at the upcoming JEC World 2022 event in Paris from May 3-5.

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 stand (Hall 5, M46). The event will 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, May 3rd 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 winner of the prestigious ACE Award for Composites Excellence by the American Composites Manufacturers Association at the CAMX 2021 event in Dallas, TX. 17 pre-orders 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 CEO, 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 knowhow, 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.
