At the request of Dura Vermeer, CyBe Construction has printed a series of 5 concrete city benches in Haarlem, the Netherlands. The benches were printed at Cybe’s R&Do lab, and then moved to the city. This off-site production is an example of how we assume prefab factories will work in the future.
3D Concrete Benches
CyBe Construction has designed, engineered, and printed the benches using our 3D concrete printing technique. We are therefore responsible for their whole cycle. We can print multiple concrete benches in a process of serial printing. An interesting development, given the fact that this might be the way in which precast factories will work in the future. We have challenged ourselves to optimize the overall printing process, in order to be able to print up to ten benches in less than a workday, including installing and moving. The print-time of one bench is 35 minutes.
The benches were printed at CyBe’s print facility
We print 10 concrete benches in less than one working day.
Easy adaptable design
One of the advantages of the software CyBe develops is the easily adaptable design. This allowed us to improve the design of the newly printed benches, as compared to the first bench in Haarlem. Not only the printing phase, but also the design and engineering phase are improved. This holistic view gives us a great benefit in perfectioning the process.
The various applications that can be done with the same printer are yet another advantage of our innovative technology. The printing of these benches has been conducted with the same CyBe RC 3D printer as we used within projects like the R&Drone Laboratory, de Vergaderfabriek, 3D housing, and more. This proves that our printer serves various markets.
