Moi recognized for 3D printing with continuous fiber
Moi composites is the overall winner of the Italian National Innovation Award (Premio Nazionale Innovazione) for its additive manufacturing technology.
Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy) spin-off moi composites (Lomazzo, Italy), has announced that it is the overall winner of the Italian National Innovation Award (Premio Nazionale Innovazione – PNI) for its additive manufacturing technology, which is reportedly able to realize high-performance products using thermosetting composites materials.
"It's an innovative system that uses a numerically controlled machine able to deposit continuous fibers impregnated with thermosetting resin in order to create high-performance objects orienting fibers towards the maximum direction of stress they are going to sustain,” says moi co-founder Gabriel Natale.
The PNI is the widest and extensive Italian innovation competition, hosted this year by the University of Verona in partnership with Verona's Chamber of Commerce.
