Robots “print” steel bridge in Amsterdam
A complex curved steel bridge was finished to be installed on a canal in Amsterdam’s red-light district, capital of the Netherlands. The 12.5 m and over 4-ton structure is being tested before being installed in the location, what will take place in 2019.
The stainless-steel bridge was developed by the startup MX3D. The company believes that this work will make 3D printing real in large-scale functional objects and sustainable materials a fact. In general terms, the welding machine has been connected to robotic arms and, by means of an intelligent software, they can print very complex metal shapes.
