GrapheneCA, a commercial scale graphene producer and developer of graphene-based technology for industries and consumers, announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Apis Cor to develop a 3D printing system capable of printing graphene materials. GrapheneCA and its partner Apis Cor, a developer of specialized concrete 3D printing equipment, are discussing a future co-operation in which GrapheneCA will design an extruder and mixing system that can be embedded into Apis Cor’s 3D printer. Together, the two companies are expecting to develop a 3D printing system capable of printing graphene material. The ability to 3D print graphene material could lead to a breakthrough in the construction industry as printers are expected to locally produce materials such as cement, cut the associated labor costs and significantly reduce construction times.

Mobile 3D printers capable of locally manufacturing graphene are expected to greatly simplify the process of building in any remote location such as high-risk natural disaster areas or on islands. 3D printers could allow developers to construct buildings able to withhold hurricanes and earthquakes in a matter of days. These advancements are anticipated to bring affordable housing one step closer to becoming a reality.
