3D concrete printing with a KUKA KR QUANTEC robotic arm
BESIX Group is an innovative company active in 3D concrete printing with an industrial KUKA robotic arm.
Technological progress in the construction sector thanks to 3D concrete printing
BESIX Group first models all elements itself via the 3D software Revit and Grashopper. This software will then drive the KUKA KR 120 R3900 robot. This robot is equipped with a nozzle for 3D concrete printing. Because BESIX Group performs 3D concrete printing with a KUKA industrial robot arm, they can print an object between 30 minutes to 1 hour on average. For example, the architectural column of 2m (see picture) is printed in less than 1 hour.
