Materialise Malaysia 3D Printing Centre of Excellence.
Materialise has announced the opening of a new 3D Printing Centre of Excellence in Malaysia which is set to become a competence centre for DLP 3D printing technologies.
This facility will become a knowledge centre for Materialise’s DLP activity and will see local research teams developing and preparing 3D printing applications for the market. The Belgium-founded company believes the centre will enhance Malaysia’s role as a driver behind 3D printing in Asia.
The teams will investigate 3D printing anatomical models and other medical devices with DLP technology to further enhance the functionality of Materialise’s 3D printing software suites for the benefit of end-users working with DLP 3D printers. Many 3D printer OEMs who currently have software partnerships with Materialise will also play a role in the new Centre of Excellence.
Wim Michiels, General Manager of Materialise Malaysia.
“We are delighted to open this competence centre in Malaysia today,” Wim Michiels, General Manager of Materialise Malaysia, commented. “It provides the missing link between our existing engineering and software development in Malaysia, and our actual knowledge of the 3D printing process. This will benefit our customers and partners enormously, as it brings us closer together –in knowledge, technology and even proximity. It will also benefit Malaysia, as it will build local knowledge and develop applications well suited for the region.”
