ETHEREAL CONCRETE 3D PRINTER

Ethereal Machines is proud to announce its latest creation, India’s first automated concrete laying machine – a Concrete 3D printer (Patent filed). Concrete 3D printing technology has the potential to enable housing for millions of people.

A drastic pivot in the construction industry is long overdue as traditional methods of infrastructure construction have a few drawbacks. The current processes are expensive, slow, labor-intensive, generate a lot of construction waste, difficult to implement in remote areas, and do not allow for complex shape creation. These methods create economic and logistical hurdles for low-cost housing, rapid and emergency relief construction.

We strongly believe that every Indian family is entitled to a stable abode. Better infrastructure is the harbinger of a bright prospective future for our country. Automating the construction industry is the only approach towards achieving that goal, as it will lead to faster and cheaper construction techniques. It also enables in reaching out to hinterlands where building structures is cumbersome.

Our initial attempts will be on the lines of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan to 3D print toilets across India. India has an estimated urban housing shortage of 18.8 million dwelling units and a rural housing shortage of 47.4 million units. With the Ethereal Concrete 3D printing technology, we hope to cater to this lacuna. We will also be targeting low-cost housing, remote location construction, and emergency relief constructions.

At present, we are testing out formulations of the concrete mixture to optimize build time and enhance the durability of the printed structure. In-depth details of our technology, materials used, and projects are undertaken will be released soon.

Why Choose Ethereal Concrete Laying 3D-Printer?

Product Highlights

The term “5-axis” refers to a machine’s ability to simultaneously move a tool or a part in five different axes. On a 5-Axis CNC machining center, the tool moves across the Z linear axe and the table rotates simultaneously on the X and Y linear axis and A and B rotary axes. You process a part from 5 directions in a single setup.

Ethereal Machines continues to improve its products with its customer in mind. Our 5-Axis CNC machining solutions help in the cost-effective manufacturing of complex designs. Investing in a CNC machine like Ethereal Halo will make an enormous difference to your business’s efficiency, productivity, and most importantly to your bottom line profits.
