After the linear unit was also delivered to the Institute of Structural Concrete (IMB) of RWTH Aachen University, the robot could be set up in the hall of IMB last week.

For stabilization, the linear unit was fixed to the floor via eight foundation plates so that the robot, with a reach of 2.70m, can move stably on it. The printing process can be controlled and executed with maximum precision via the software and an associated tablet.

With the connection of the concrete pump, the process of 3D reinforced concrete printing can now be researched in practice in the CBI by the IMB on the RWTH campus!

We hope to gain exciting insights in the research and application of this digital and innovative construction method and would like to take this opportunity to once again thank the Ministry of Regional Identity, Communities and Local Government, Building and Gender Equality of the Land of North Rhine-Westphalia, which is supporting the research by providing financial support for the creation of a corresponding equipment infrastructure.
