3D printing for the construction industry

The Vicat group has applied its extensive technical and scientific know-how to develop the Lithosys offering in order not just to meet today’s extensive requirements but also to carry the use of concrete into uncharted territory. Its expertise covers the entire value chain of concrete 3D printing. Lithosys provides support consistent with every project :

  • - design of objects for 3D printing: the desired shapes are broken down into successive layers of controlled width and thickness, taking full account of the limits of this manufacturing process;
  • - design of customized concrete inks: Lithosys 3D inks are specially designed to meet the requirements of additive manufacturing while ensuring the requisite performance of the material itself;
  • - creation and installation of concrete 3D printing systems in workshops or on construction sites;
  • - manufacture of printed concrete products: special precast double-wall panels, manhole covers, street furniture, external decoration, systems for fostering biodiversity, etc.
