PERI GmbH, one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of formwork and scaffold systems, has marked a milestone in its pursuit of advancing construction additive manufacturing. The German company has sold its first BOD2 construction 3D printer (made by COBOD) to German concrete specialist Röser GmbH.

PERI GmbH has been an active supporter of construction AM for a couple of years now: the company invested in Denmark-based COBOD back in 2018 and last April became an official distributor of COBOD’s BOD2 printer. The sale to Röser marks its first successful transaction since this announcement.

Röser installed the 3D printer earlier this month with the help of a dedicated team of engineers from PERI. It will use the BOD2 system to manufacture prefabricated concrete elements at its new facility in Laupheim, Germany. With construction 3D printing added to its capabilities, the company aims to exploit the freedom of design that AM enables to create concrete parts for the open space planning sector, as well as special-purpose parts for the road construction and civil engineering sectors, creative pieces for building construction and stylish concrete products.

“At PERI, we are convinced that 3D construction printing offers great potential,” commented Thomas Imbacher, Managing Director Innovation & Marketing at PERI Group. “Right now, a number of universities and companies are working on developing and industrialising this technology for various market segments such as, for example, residential construction. The construction printing team at PERI is working non-stop on this topic and we are confident that we will be able to report more success stories before long. Selling the first 3D construction printer to our partner and client Röser GmbH is an important first step for PERI. This is the first step of many.”

The BOD2 system developed by COBOD is a gantry-based printer with a build speed of up to 1 meter per second. The rapid system is also designed to require minimal operator involvement: only two people are needed to successfully run the printer. In terms of scale, the BOD2 is modular and comes in many sizes, from 1.9 x 2.1 x 1.5 m to 7 x 34.9 x 5.6 m. The dimensions of the system sold to Röser were not disclosed.

“We have monitored the development and potential of 3D construction printers in various industries and we are convinced that they will also have a huge role to play in the precast concrete industry over the long term,” added Maximilian Röser, Managing Partner of Röser GmbH. “Röser GmbH has always been a highly innovative company that is open to new ideas. For that reason, we are embarking on this venture of further developing and promoting 3D construction printing technology with conviction, with PERI as our partner. We hope that the business relationship between PERI and Röser GmbH proves to be a long and fruitful one.”
