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.
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
Patent WO2017085649A1 "Apparatus and method for three-dimensional printing of continuous fibre composite materials" is granted at Politecnico di Milano University.
The first object in the world has been realised with Additive Manufacturing and thermosetting continuous fiber fiber composite.
First continuous fiber hand made test
