Customized formwork

Shuttering units from the concrete printer offer many advantages:

less work, less cost, hardly any waste.
Why is that?

Conventional formwork bodies are cut to size and assembled on site. After concreting, they are dismantled; the formwork material accumulates as waste. In contrast, 3D formwork from our printer is prefabricated to the centimeter and is permanently embedded in concrete. They are easy to assemble: during installation, only one steel angle is needed for fixation, which can be reused – there is almost no waste. Once the recess bodies have been recorded and programmed, they can be reordered easily and quickly. Special shapes are also possible and can be used as an architectural element.

This is how an integrated formwork from the 3D printer works:

  • You provide us with the dimensions of the required formwork(s).
  • We will provide you with an individual offer.
  • After order, we print the recess body(ies) required for this purpose.
  • We deliver the elements directly to your construction site.
  • A short explanatory video shows how the 3D-printed integrated formwork is integrated into the cast-in-place concrete formwork.
  • After concreting, the few assembly materials are disassembled for further use.
  • The formwork body remains in the cast-in-place concrete and ensures an exact recess in the concrete component.

Simple, fast, inexpensive

Advantages of our 3D printed integrated formwork:
The installation time on the construction site is significantly reduced due to prefabrication.
There is no time for stripping the formwork, as the component remains in the cast-in-place concrete element.
The special surface structure of the 3D formwork creates a strong bond with the cast-in-place concrete component.
When installing the printed formwork, only one steel angle is needed for fixing, which can be reused – there is almost no waste.
The total cost of the 3D body is much lower than for the production of a wooden formwork on site, because the time required for creating the formwork and stripping is eliminated.
Once formwork bodies have been entered and programmed, they can be reordered quickly and easily.
Formwork elements are also possible in unusual shapes and can be used as an architectural element.

Our integrated formwork replaces the sometimes very costly formwork for, among other things:

recesses, supports of any cross-section, wall elements
The integrated formwork from the EIGNER Betonmanufaktur 3D printer can take on dimensions of up to 1.50 x 2.50 meters. However, by printing out modules and assembling them on site, even larger elements can be assembled from several individual parts.
By the way, EIGNER Betonmanufaktur’s 3D formwork can also be integrated into your BIM (Building Information Modeling) project. This makes them part of the planning process from the very beginning.
