Euroscatola is partner for Caracol’s “Beluga” project

September 28 2021

Euroscatola as a partner is pleased to present the innovative “Beluga” project.

Caracol AM and NextChem collaborated on this joint research project that resulted in the creation of the world’s first prototype of a 3D printed monocoque sailboat using recycled MyReplast(TM) material.

“Beluga” is in fact the worldwide first boat made with recycled materials and demonstrates how these can be effectively exploited even in the creation of advanced components with high performance requirements.

The official presentation of “Beluga” took place during the Milan Design Week (5-10 September 2021), where several guests also attended during the meetings concerning the topic of large 3D printing and the possibilities that the circularity of materials can offer. During the event the project was exhibited at Isola Design District in Via Angelo della Pergola in Milan.

Caracol AM is an Italian brand that aims to overcome the limits of manufacturing and find more efficient and sustainable alternatives. It works with a proprietary Additive Manufacturing technology, with significant advantages in terms of costs, sustainability, performance and production times.
