CARACOL S.R.L.

CARACOL S.R.L.

Following a research project held by our founders in 2015, Caracol was founded in 2017 to overcome the limits of existing AM technologies. Combining technological innovation with an industrial vision, we aim at providing a new manufacturing paradigm to respond to client’s needs for efficiency and sustainability in production. Our team grows fast and is composed of unique, talented individuals who’ll be disrupting the future of industrial production, matching their skills in generative design and AM with an extensive knowledge of industrial goods industries.

HERON AM is our Large-Format Additive Manufacturing system, developed to evolve the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing on scale, shape, and materials. It is composed by a robotized extrusion head, with direct and continuous feeding of composites and polymers, a dedicated software platform for the most complex tool paths, and many more features fully integrated to manufacture advanced industrial parts. HERON AM is one of the best robotic LFAM systems globally: an integrated hardware and software, turnkey solution able to maximize flexibility, process control, and performance to produce advanced components for high-performing industrial sectors, both on-demand and in-situ. Following the “application-first” approach, the system can be customized for different manufacturing requirements and applications in the Aerospace, Automotive, Energy, Marine, Architecture and Design sectors.

Today, HERON AM is helping customers achieve their productivity, efficiency, and sustainability goals. We offer our clients a broad range of solutions to accompany them throughout their production process and to promote knowledge of Additive Manufacturing: from design and concept development, engineering of components for AM production, manufacturing prototypes, pre-series and final parts with no limit in scale, to support in internalizing 3D printing technologies for line production of finished parts, and 3D printing training and workshops. Being on our clients’ side fosters our daily commitment to innovate and evolve production systems, looking for more cost-effective, performing, faster, and environmentally conscious manufacturing solution.

ROLE IN THE PROJECT

Caracol is partner of the DeremCo project as a use case leader. The demo case is on the industrial exploitation of fibers obtained from reprocessed end-of-life wind blades that can be used in combination with recycled polymer matrices to produce FRP-based tools for the manufacturing industry and other goods.
