28 — Springa
Goliath is the first robotic CNC portable and autonomous milling machine produced by Springa, a company established in 2016 to develop robotic tools for digital manufacturing. For its first product the collective of young designers and engineers from Politecnico di Milano developed through a Kickstarter crowdfunding the project for a robotic machine tool that changes the ratio between a milling machine and worktop by reversing the point of view: from fixed to mobile. The worktop in fact becomes the panel itself that is being milled, while the most consistent part of the machine (usually a kind of cumbersome table) disappears.
