3D Concrete Printing – LIVE Demonstration (small scale)
Date & Time: Thursday Feb 07, 2019
Sika Canada is proud to demonstrate a live 3D concrete printing activity at the CCE Show. Come and see for yourself how we can now print with an extreme efficiency a flowable ink which is pumped and can be rapidly hardened when placed with maximum precision. We will show you amongst others the speed of the printing process, reaching an application of the concrete at a continuous rate up to 4t/h with printing speed far above of 1m/s.
