Sweden Coil Center uses 3D printers to increase efficiency

Sweden Coil Center AB (SCC) uses custom-made tools, known as coil shaping templates, to achieve the highest level of precision when winding perfectly shaped coils for electrical generators. These tools used to be carved from solid wood due to their complex shape and have traditionally been limited to skilled craftsmen with years of experience. However, as these craftsmen are no longer available, SCC turned to 3D printing expert Sculptur for future solutions.

By using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology, Swedish-based Sculptur managed to recreate the tools using a robot 3D printer, with even higher precision and using less material.

”By creating a digital tool in the computer, we have been able to refine the products. We have managed to reduce weight, the amount of material, and even production time,” says Mario Markovic, site manager at Sculptur.

After two years of development, the second generation of 3D-printed solutions has been brought to the market. The partners have now decided to deepen their cooperation.

”We are very satisfied with the result and happy to be pioneers using 3D printing,” says Johan Öhrner, manager at SCC.

Both Sculptur and SCC are dedicated to creating a circular solution by using materials that can be recycled after use.

The shaping templates are used only once, or a maximum of a few times, because the generators are often custom-made. The old, wooden-based tools sometimes had to be destroyed after usage, creating unnecessary waste. With the help of Sculptur, the future templates will be able to be recycled.

Let your table come to life

Some time ago, we 3D printed a foundation for a conference table designed by MER Arkitektbyrå.

Here’s a glimpse of it. The end result is amazing.

Sculptur nominerad till hållbarhetspris

Sculptur är nominerad till Hållbara Blekinges Guldeken för sitt arbete inom hållbarhet.

De nominerade är, förutom Sculptur, Johannishus Gods och Celsa Recycling. Det är sjunde året Länsförsäkringar Blekinge delar ut priset Hållbara Blekinge till personer eller företag som utmärkt sig lite extra i länet.

Vinnaren koras den 6 oktober.

Sculptur is nominated for the Sustainable Blekinge Gold Medal for its work in sustainability.

The nominees are, in addition to Sculptur, Johannishus Gods and Celsa Recycling. It is the seventh year that Länsförsäkringar Blekinge has awarded the Sustainable Blekinge award to people or companies that excelled a little extra in the county.

The winner will be announced on October 6.

Get creative!

3D printing is evolving rapidly. We love to be in the front, developing new designs, recycling processes, and manufacturing tools for the future. Like these radiator covers individually designed to fit the different windows of an old house. Challenge us! 

Material: UPM Formi 3D

Design on demand

What to do when you can’t find the perfect terrace table on the market? Roger Berliat in Switzerland made a simple sketch for Sculptur and described what he wanted. In just a few days later, the table was printed! That is design on demand

New material from old Volvo and VW bumpers

Together with Volvo Cars, Volkswagen Group, and several entities in the automotive industry, Sculptur has managed to transform obsolete bumpers into design furniture using large-scale 3D technology!

A car consists of about 20% plastic. Every year, around 200,000 end-of-life cars are sent to a scrapyard in Sweden. In addition, approximately 600,000 cars are involved in accidents, which means that car parts must be replaced. All in all, a lot of plastic material from cars is only recycled through energy recovery, ie through incineration where the energy is recovered.

Each piece of furniture is provided with a QR code making it easy to tell the story, but also find information about how to recycle the 100% recyclable furniture.

Design: Rutger Design.

Design made easy

3D printing gives the world a new way of creating beauty. Design student Annie Hedlund from Oslo Met has created a beautiful standing table during her bachelor thesis at Sculptur. Her task was to come up with a design suitable for weak, recycled materials. The soft shapes make it stronger and by avoiding sharp edges Annie made it possible to use recycled materials that would have been incinerated.

Printing time: 4 h.

Material: Recycled polypropene

How to reform the furniture industry

Another order of the Reform chair completed! With additive manufacturing, you simply print what you have designed – without using any molds. If you are not satisfied, redesign your CAD and print again. The first product from Sculptur was the REFORM chair. This masterpiece was designed by Jurij Rahimkulov and catches the eye with its beautiful curves. 
It became such a success that we decided to spin off a company dedicated to market the furniture collection:
Reform Design Lab

Nowadays we have come up with a simple way to color our base materials cheap and in pretty much any color.

Material: UPM FORMI + black pigment and natural colored Stora Enso Duransense.

And the winner is…


We love challenges. When leading technology company ABB ask us to create a price for their yearly announcement of best-performing partners, we came up with a 3D printed loving cup made of recyclable material. But, we don´t expect the price back for recycling. It´s too beautiful.

Material: Stora Enso Durasense

Bringing new value to the world using large scale 3D printing and circular innovation.
