A series of concrete casting techniques have been revived with the aid of large format 3D printing.

Fahmi Al-Shawwa, CEO of Immensa Technology Labs, said, “This breakthrough signals the immense potential that 3D printed formwork offers companies to significantly shorten and simplify their studio to site process.”

Ready to be used without additional certification, 3D printed formwork enables resolutions that cannot be achieved by 3D printing concrete, allowing companies to produce parts on a grand scale.

“This fulfils Immensa’s mission to drive innovation in the 3D printing industry and highlight the unique benefits of this manufacturing method to show how it can benefit companies in the construction sector,” Fahmi added.

Immensa’s state-of-the-art facility now houses 10 3D printing systems and offers more than 30 materials for production.

Aref Boualwan, manager, MIS and business process re-engineering, added, “The age of construction and engineering is dramatically changing and we are ready at the forefront, working with leading organisations to seize opportunities that will truly transform our industry and society in coming years.”

It is equipped to build and manufacture production quality parts, components and one-off prototypes for customers across a variety of industries using a wide range of advanced technologies including selective laser sintering (SLS), stereo lithography (SLA), extrusion (FDM), and material jetting.
