Construction 3D printing in India is seeing a rapid upswing as more and more Startups are entering the market. Deltasys E-Forming, a Belgaum-based Developer and manufacturer of 3D printing machines, revealed that it has delivered an indigenously developed concrete 3D printer to Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB). The 3D printer will be under the administration of the Structural Evaluation and Materials Technologies (SEMT) Lab Department of Civil Engineering.

The concrete 3D printer has a maximum build volume of 1 cubic meter and is capable of building strong and resilient concrete structures.

Deltasys E-Forming is working with all major research institutions of India to develop indigenous 3D printing technology in India. It has also worked with multiple IIT’s in India for its concrete 3D printer. With IIT Bombay, it developed a gantry style concrete 3D printer. This concrete 3D printer was delivered to the institute just last week and will be installed at its SEMT Lab Department of Civil Engineering. This is a major boost for construction 3D printing in India as we see more and more technical institutes researching on the technology.

This concrete 3D printer has a build volume of 1 cubic meter and will be able to build strong concrete structures. IIT Bombay itself will formulate the material as per their own research applications. The Deltasys machine is able to process any third party material and can process up to 8mm aggregate concrete including all kinds of plasters, cement paste, mud, etc.

The aim of the lab is to use this printer to study the technology, research & develop compatible and sustainable materials. This printer will be utilised for material research applications.

The concrete 3D printer will be highly useful for the advancement of the technology in India. By partnering with a Startup, IIT Bombay is not only encouraging the Startup culture in India but also sending out a strong message to the technology manufacturers.

“We have already sold more than five concrete 3D printers in India and right now, we have orders for 12 plus concrete 3D printers. For one of our customers, we are also developing our largest concrete 3D printer (possibly the largest in India) that will be capable of constructing a four-story structure.”

– Virendra Kadam, Founder & CEO at DELTASYS E-FORMING

Deltasys E-Forming is a rapidly expanding company that has already delivered over 500 3D printers across India. It is currently working on multiple concrete 3D printing projects, and is on track to deliver many more such printers in the near future.

Construction 3D Printing in India

Lately, we are seeing a lot of buzz towards construction 3D printing in India. More and more Startups are engaging indigenously developing concrete 3D printers. The reason for this sudden rise in popularity can be because of the impending housing crisis facing the world. The situation at home is similar and more so in the metro cities. Concrete 3D printing seems to be the way out of this crisis.

Concrete 3D printing , also called as Construction 3D printing is seeing a rapid growth and acceptance across the world. A lot of Startups are now engaging in the design and development of concrete 3D printers that are capable of building strong structures and even 2-storey buildings and higher.

Some of the leading construction 3D printing companies are building varied infrastructure projects like 3D printed houses, school buildings, offices, bridge, military barracks, and many others. All these projects are quite successful which highlights the benefits and superiorities of the 3D printing technology.
