Cementos Progreso is leading the way for 3D concrete printing in Latin America with the installation of the first COBOD International 3D construction printer in Guatemala.
“COBOD is the world leader in 3D construction printing solutions. We are confident that it is the best technology on the market. We have watched with our own eyes the buildings printed with the technology. That gives us certainty that Cementos Progreso has chosen a globally leading ally in implementing the technology in our country,” said Plinio Estuardo Herrera, head of concrete at Cementos Progreso.
Cementos Progreso’s R&D team has been working for more than three years to research, develop and implement a 3D printable cementitious material. Last week, the company confirmed its firm commitment to the 3D construction printing technology with the official opening of the new Center for Innovation and Development aimed at contributing to the development of the construction printing industry in Latin America.
Cementos Progreso is currently working with 3D modeling for urban and habitable projects that it plans to manufacture with the 3D construction printer from COBOD International.
