moi is a Politecnico di Milano's spin-off startup founded on February 2nd 2018.
moi was launched to solve a problem:
Thermosetting composites are one of the best performing class of materials available, unfortunately, traditional manufacturing is still, in these days, expensive and requires a lot of time, especially for small series or unique objects.
moi is the natural result of a research called -Atropos- born inside +LAB, the 3D printing lab of the Politecnico di Milano university focused on exploring the possibility of using thermosetting short, and continuous, fiber composite materials in additive manufacturing.
moi aims to redefine the manufacturing of composites materials exploiting all the potentialities of robotics, artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing.
PNI - Premio Nazionale Innovazione - Winners
Out of 797 companies, moi has been awarded as winner of the Italian National Innovation Prize and winner of the Industrial category.
Hello Tomorrow Top 500
moi qualified in the top 500 deeptech startups worldwide and will participate at the Hello Tomorrow global summit in Paris on 14-15 March 2019.
moi has won 2nd prize at Startcup Lombardia 2018 and qualified for the national finals of the Premio Nazionale Innovazione.
Compasso d'Oro Honourable Mention
Atropos won the honourable mention at the 2018 edition of Compasso d'Oro Award, the most prestigious Italian design Award.
Partnership with COMAU
James Dyson Award Runner-up
Atropos was named 2017 international runner up by James Dyson.
Partnership with Autodesk
In July 2017 we started a partnership with Autodesk to implement stress analysis and optimisation into the workflow. The first case study has been exhibited during Formnext 2017.
JEC Innovation Award Winners
Atropos: Smart Manufacturing of Continuous Fiber Composites, won the JEC Innovation Award 2017 in 3D Printing category, in collaboration with Owens Corning and KUKA.
Partnership with KUKA
On September 2016 we started a partnership with KUKA to liberate the deposition of fibers from the conventional planar sequence and explore a new method of placing and orienting fibers in the three-dimensional space employing custom algorithms with artificial intelligence.
3D printing continuous fiber hybrid composites
Partnership with Owens Corning
We work close with Owens Corning to find the best sizing and characteristics of continuous and short glass fibers and using them in our process.
3D printing continuous fiber composites patent deposition
Priority patent filed on November 17th 2015 "Apparatus and method for three-dimensional printing of continuous fibre composite materials" has been granted at Politecnico di Milano University on May 7th 2018.
The first object in the world has been realised with Additive Manufacturing and thermosetting continuous fiber fiber composite.
First continuous fiber hand made test
