About us

Swiss Innovation

Spectroplast is an award winning Spinoff from the renowned Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The team has successfully bridged the gap between cutting-edge research and technology transfer to meet a longstanding demand on the market: Silicone 3D Printing



3d manufacturing technology

About us

With SAMT, industry standard Silicones can be 3D printed at highest precision and performance, without the use of moulds - saving costs and time - all at zero waste.

We provide our SAMT Service for Silicones in a Shore hardness from A0 - A80. In all colours and transparent.

Now available:

A0, A10, A20, A30, A40, A50, A60, A70, A80

About our amazing team
of experts

We believe that 3D printing has the potential to shift focus from rapid prototyping to mass customization of functional products. With the world’s first SLA silicone printing technology, we can expand the range of printable materials from rigid to stretchable materials, such as silicones. Conventionally, silicone components are fabricated in millions by injection molding or casting that require molds. This is both, lengthy and expensive. We believe that it is time to revolutionize silicone production and move from mass production to mass customization. Our materials are compatible with convential Additive Manufacturing technologies, meaning that silicone parts can now be directly fabricated straight out of a printer.
