Swedish 3D printing production provider Lostboyslab invests in two Delta WASP 4070 industrial 3D printers from Italian manufacturer WASP to be installed in the Lostboyslab Alpha Zero 3D printing farm in Malmö, Sweden. Lostboyslab is now Scandinavia’s largest 3D printing farm and with in-house design, production and software engineering, the focus is on circular design and sustainable manufacturing.

The three new WASP delta industrial 3D printers will join the farm, which already has more than 200 printers in use, on a single site. WASP is based outside of Bologna in Italy and has been developing 3D printers since 2012. WASP works with the same key values ​​and mantra as Lostboyslab, the local powerhouse to manufacture, reuse and recycle materials to build a better and safer world. the circularity of resources. WASP has successfully built many printers over the years and is now mainly based on circulars and biomaterials with delta technology for 3D printing, a fast and reliable solution.

“The three WASP systems will be a great addition to our lab where we are increasingly doing research and printability testing with new circular and sustainable materials. This will allow us to print the same design in the same size but with three different extrusions of recycled materials. We believe that WASP can be a great partner for the future of nano and micro factories and allow us to manufacture with recycled pellets, our own 3D filament recycled as ceramics”, said Stefan Larsson, CEO and founder of Lostboyslab.

Lostboyslab is investing in two Delta WASP 4070 3D printers to add to more than 200 3D printers currently found in additive production facilities.

The decision to invest in WASP printers was made after Formnext in 2021 and will now be delivered in April this year. The Wasp 4070 ZX, Wasp 4070 HDP and Delta Wasp 40100 Clay high-performance delta printers will all be installed in the Lostboyslab micro-factory on the south coast of Sweden. All three delta printers have a similar print size of 400 x 700mm and similar technology, but are individually tuned to print with pellet, filament and clay respectively. The WASP system will be used for research and testing with various new recycled materials, currently under development based on hybrid blends between thermoplastics like rPETG and fiber/rubber components. WASP systems will also be available as a print service for external customers as part of the normal 3D print farm.

“2,300 years ago, the wise man said: ‘little light thoughts take shape by settling’. OK BOYS, thank you for choosing us! Let’s imagine together a magnificent World and embody the dream in matter to build the Paradise that will come! commented WASP founder Massimo Moretti.
