Maire Tecnimont | Material Characterization

Year: 2019 – On going

Material: Recycled PP

Industry: Design&Architecture

We stared a collaboration with Maire Tecnimont to enable them progress towards more sustainable production methods and future. Using the recovered plastic waste coming from their MyReplast Industries  plants, we characterized for them a special material blend for the 3D printing of many different applications.

A solution which is not only sustainable for he environment but also leading to much cheaper solutions when manufacturing custom, one-single components for their offices. This blend of recycled plastic pellets  is directlt transformed into filament by  our proprietary robotic 3D Printing technology , allowing us to manufacture many different furnishing pieces for their offices, as well as other applications.

For Maire Tecnimont’s “Beyond Digital” event, we designed and printed a custom and personalized desk, which served as a welcome station for the attendees: the desk featured a 3D printed relief of Maire Tecnimont’s company logo, and was manufactured using the recycled plastic pellets  from Maire Tecnimont’s MyReplast Industries Plant.

Another application of this custom material can be found in the company’s HQ’s entrance in Milano, for which we designed and printed a custom booth for their security team. The booth  manufactured with our proprietary robotic system, allowing the manufacturing of such large scale installation.

Also, we used this same material  in the production of modular furnishing pieces to provided a simple way to ensure safety measures in the eopening of the Maire ecnimont’s offices after the lockdown caused by Covid-19 emergency. These modules enabled Maire Tecnimont to indicate safe pathwas inside their HQ, and can be easily   arranged according to need, patterns, and signage can be easily reproduced, customized, and extended to spaces where necessary.

Our technology goes beyond the limits of traditional 3D printing to provide clients with customized pieces, large size prints, high performing products and the opportunity to successfully pursue circular economy. These custom furnishing we 3D printed for Maire Tecnimont embody  all of these aspects allowing for significant savings in costs, raw materials and giving waste a second life.
