We turn design challenges into manufacturing solutions.
At La Máquina we blend craft and technology to create a new manufacturing standard. We explore new aesthetics informed by sustainable solutions, integrating advanced manufacturing technology with programmable materials.
Each piece we 3D print at La Máquina expresses the synergy between craft and advanced fabrication. Our aim is to bridge analog and digital expertise, reshaping tradition and innovation towards a new definition of manufacturing.
WHAT WE DO
La Máquina by Noumena is a cutting-edge manufacturing center scaling up novel solutions for the 3D printing industry. We develop projects that utilize a wide range of sustainable materials as well as innovative printing techniques varying from small to large scale. 3D printing is for us a medium to establish new ecological solutions for the built enviroment, integrating digital intelligence and numerical fabrication.
In our facility, equipped with cutting-edge machines, we develop projects dedicated to big-scale additive manufacturing.
Reshaping fabrication starts blending different skills and knowledge towards a novel workflow of creativity and fabrication. Our aim is to establish a new aesthetic driven by sustainability, functionality, and craft.
At La Maquina by Noumena, we believe innovation is the result of great collaborations. We work with multiple talents from designers, material experts, and manufacturing engineers, exploring and integrating solutions for custom manufacturing.
HOW WE DO IT
We use the latest 3D printing technology counting on a highly experienced team. Our facility is equipped with the best machines, challenging the production capability of an emerging industry. We can face large productions, providing economic and fast solutions. Machines, tools, and technology are an essential part of a new workflow that still circles around our highest value: a unique group of talented and passionate people.
We print with the material technology of PURE.TECH.
A special bioplastic absorbing pollution from the air.
We use WEARPURE.TECH, an advanced polymer absorbing the main greenhouse gases polluting our atmosphere. WEARPURE.TECH integrates CO2pure, a 100% natural compound, with the property to mineralize CO2, NOx, and VOCs, converting them into inert minerals. WEARPURE.TECH is specifically thought for 3d printing fabrication. Our products range from PLA and TPU pellet and filaments, guaranteeing highly manufacturing performances.
Noumena is a tech company implementing data-informed solutions for spatial analytics and strategic planning. Noumena mission is to develop metrics and instruments to empower decision-makers towards more efficient, resilient and sustainable spatial solutions. We implement spatial metrics and advanced visualizations to better understand complex spatial dynamics.
Reshape is a platform promoting research, design and production of digital ideas, exploring implications and applications of technology in our society. Representing an international community of designers, makers and customers inspired by innovation, intends to establish a new worldwide network of ideas and creativity able to shift the production paradigm.
PURE.TECH is an advanced polymer integrating CO2pure, a 100% natural mineral compound, with the property to mineralize primary greenhouse gases polluting the air we breathe. Can adsorb and neutralize CO2, NOx, and VOCs converting them into environmentally friendly minerals. It has several phases of action, by catalysis, photocatalysis, carbonation and nitrification.
