ACCIONA Participates in 3DSTEP Event with its Large-Scale 3D Printing in Concrete

 

ACCIONA was present at the 3DSTEP International Conference and Exhibition held in Tampere (Finland) on 4 and 5 October. This is the biggest industrial event in Scandinavia in the area of large-scale 3D printing technologies and it brought together more than 1,000 professionals from the sector while showcasing the latest international innovations and experiences using additive manufacturing.

Representing ACCIONA as part of the Conference's Future Constructions workshop were José Daniel García Espinel, Director of Technology Transfer at ACCIONA S.A; Carlos Gustavo García Jarabo, Director of Innovation at ACCIONA Ingeniería; and Luis Clemente Ortega, Technology Transfer Manager at ACCIONA S.A. They delivered two presentations showcasing, on the one hand, the versatility offered by large-scale 3D printing technologies in producing concrete elements without the use of moulds and, on the other, the engineering challenges faced in manufacturing pieces using this new technology.

ACCIONA is experienced in the area of additive manufacturing as demonstrated a number of months ago with the public presentation of its piece called the Modulated Wall, a 1.35 metre-tall section of concrete wall designed by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and in which ACCIONA Ingeniería developed the structural calculation of the manufactured construction elements.

Our Company's participation in this event reflects how our commitment to developing innovation and sustainability has become a hallmark of ACCIONA's identity.
