Armadillo White

When developing new 3D printing materials and applications, you don’t want hardware or software to be the limiting factor. When our founders experienced the restrictions of the tools available on the market, they founded CONCR3DE - and developed their own. Armadillo White is a fully open binder jetting 3D printer that has both customizable hardware, an open material platform and accessible software.

For researchers, by researchers

Armadillo White was designed to help material researchers and scientists explore the full potential of additive manufacturing. This modular, accessible platform can use any available CONCR3DE powder or binder - but invites you to create new standards and novel applications. Every single setting, from speed to saturation and from the binder droplet size and shape to UV- or infrared curing options – Armadillo White gives you full control over the 3D printing process and results.

From prototyping to production

Reduction Insert
The Reduction Insert is an add-on that shrinks the minimum print size. This means you can start printing with less than 1 liter of powder, reducing your waste, preparation time and costs. Once you progress, simply take it out to print full-scale, all in one versatile printer.
Labjet LFR Binder Supply
When testing new formulations, you want to start with small batches, with optimal stability and repeatability. The Labjet LFR Binder Supply allows you to apply tiny, measured binder volumes with a syringe. This add-on is excellent for volatile or expensive binders.
Extra Large (Optional)
This add-on increases the Armadillo printing dimensions to 440 x 440 x 250 mm. This increases the options to perform research at a larger scale, prototype, and run production on a single printer, without further investments or R&D transfer issues.

Unprecedented Versatility

UV Curing
For printing polymer or composite materials, the UV Curing add-on is indispensable. It adds the possibility to cure the material with a 395 nm (+/- 5) light engine with a typical radiation of 5,5 W/cm2 and optical output power of 31 W, and UV power of 4,2 W/cm.
Integrated NOAH control
Armadillo White includes an integrated control station with our custom and fully open NOAH software pre-installed on optimized hardware. NOAH offers full access to all parameters of the printing process and controls the add-ons.
Infrared Heater
Certain powders require high-temperature curing or bind faster at higher temperatures. The Infrared Heater is based on a powerful infrared curing lamp and allows you to control the print bed temperature. The Infrared Heater enables heating the print bed up to 80°C.

Thanks to our fully accessible binder jetting platform, material scientists and researchers can explore the full potential of 3D printing novel materials. Our versatile research & development product range supports your goals.
Custom Materials
The highly versatile CONCR3DE binder jetting technology offers unprecedented material opportunities, for example in terms of upcycling waste streams to create new products. The below compounds have all been tested by our team and verified for use in our printers.
Binder jetting 3D printing is based on two key elements: a powder and a binder. The powder can be a concrete, metal, ceramic, or other material you want to bond in powder form. The binder is a liquid, which acts as an adhesive between powder layers.
