Our Latest Innovations

Automated 3d printing technology

Underground storm- and wastewater infrastructures are receiving a significant upgrade thanks to Pipelife’s unique application of high-precision production. What so far has only served to manufacture single art objects or prototypes, is for the first time in history applied in mass production. As a global pioneer, we are using automatic 3D printing technology to produce fully customized polypropylene (PP) manholes as part of our storm- and wastewater product systems. 

Precision in civil engineering is taken a step further, with formerly difficult angles and heights within manhole profiles realized to perfection, and different in-and-outlet pipe diameters combinable at the click of a button. In addition to the benefits from almost infinite customization possibilities (R&D calculated 400 quadrillion options), the third-party test laboratory Deltares confirms exceeding product performance compared to classically fabricated products. Upfront computer calculations design manhole profiles with optimal flow properties, while 3D printing precision enables 1:1 implementation with smooth and seamless interiors. Less maintenance can therefore be expected as much as overall improved service of the complete storm- or wastewater system.
