Massivit 10000

Nov 14, 2022

Massivit 3D Printing Technologies (Tel Aviv Stock Exchange: MSVT), the leading provider of large-scale 3D printing systems announced that the Massivit 10000 additive manufacturing system has been selected as winner of the 2022 IBEX Innovation Award in the category of “Boatbuilding Methods and Materials”. The Massivit 10000 is designed to manufacture molds for composite material components.

This industry accolade reflects the marine sector’s demand for more advanced, automated manufacturing technologies that can significantly reduce the current two-to-four-week manual processes required to produce large molds and parts.

Judge Julia Carleton said, “The Massivit 10000 dramatically simplifies and shortens the process for producing complex custom molds. By combining multiple cutting-edge technologies, they have created a tool that will significantly benefit any marine manufacturer working with composites.”

IBEX, The International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference, is the largest exhibition in North America for marine manufacturers, established almost 30 years ago. The annual IBEX Innovation Awards are managed by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in conjunction with the IBEX show. 10 companies were selected as winners for specific marine categories from a total 70 competing companies.

Erez Zimermann, Massivit CEO, stated: “The marine sector is still heavily reliant on manual, antiquated production methods. This award is testament to the industry’s thirst for technological progress. Until now, production of custom parts has taken weeks or even months. Digital fabrication enables manufacturers to produce high-quality parts with significantly reduced lead times. The Massivit 10000 technology delivers full-scale parts within a few days. In addition to widespread use of our first-generation Gel Dispensing Printing technology across various industries, the Massivit 10000 aptly serves the maritime industry as one of the first arenas to benefit from this new technology.”

The Massivit 10000 is Massivit 3D’s second-generation line of printers. The printer operates using Cast In Motion technology, designed to directly print molds for composite material components as well as mandrels, plugs, tools, jigs and fixtures that serve industrial manufacturing companies.

This is the third award granted for the Massivit 10000 to date, having been selected as winner for the 2021 ACE Award for Composites Excellence by the American Composites Manufacturers Association in the category: “Manufacturing: Equipment and Tooling Innovation”. The system was also Highly Commended in the 3D Printing Hardware category at the TCT 3Sixty Awards in the UK in June 2022.
