About moi

Moi is the first and only European tech start-up to offer a better, efficient, and more affordable way to 3D print on-demand, advanced composite objects.

Founded in Milano early 2018 as a spinoff of Politecnico di Milano University, moi merges best-class materials, software and hardware to competitively deliver and support optimized, digital manufacturing of advanced composite parts, perfect for small lot or tailor-made objects.
Advanced composite materials provide stronger, lightweight, heat/corrosion resistant products in demanding applications.

Moi’s patented technology, Continuous Fiber Manufacturing (CFM), reduces variability and offers superior design flexibility with its unique robotics production. CFM uses smart fiber optimization algorithms to deposit material only where needed for less weight, no waste, and better cost and energy efficiency. It shortens lead times due to less parts, assembly, and logistics for greater customer value.

With technical and business expertise and over fifteen years of combined 3D printing experience, moi creates custom, high performance objects with ease and simplicity, shifting muscle power to brain power for improved, quality products that results in savings for both customers and the environment.

Moi serves a wide range of markets including medical, marine, industrial, aerospace, transportation, and energy. Thanks to its innovative technology and dedicated team of professionals, moi was recognized for international awards across several fields and obtained key partners in leading industries.

Moi provides people with the freedom to create unimaginable geometries in hyper performances, a ground-breaking way to redefine composite manufacturing.
