Mambo (Motor Additive Manufacturing Boat), from the young Italian company Moi Composites Srl, shows a new and uniquely shaped boat that cannot be achieved with traditional manufacturing. It was digitally produced in patented 3D printing technology, Continuous Fiber Manufacturing (CFM), an innovative system that, thanks to the use of robots guided by experts by generative algorithms, allows 3D printing of continuous fiber composite materials.
CFM technology involves the use of robotic machines, capable of depositing continuous fibers impregnated with thermosetting resin to create products with optimized performance, based on a three-dimensional model of the object. This allows the creation of fiber-reinforced products with mechanical characteristics comparable to unidirectional fiberglass, without the aid of models, molds, and other tooling equipment. In this way, it is possible to obtain not only prototypes, but real products in small batches or unique pieces, efficiently and profitably.
Mambo is 6.5 meters long by 2.5 meters wide, has a dry weight of approximately 800 kg and is equipped with a real navigation system, cork flooring, white leather seats and a 115 hp engine.
Mambo represents not only the first ship made with innovative three-dimensional production techniques to be used in real sailing, but also a window to a new sea of possibilities and an invitation to reflect on the way we judge the realization of possible or impossible ideas. .
