UAE's Immensa deploys key solution at CCC facility

DUBAI, May 22, 2018

UAE-based Immensa Technology Labs (Immensa), a leading additive manufacturing (AM or 3D printing) company in the UAE, said it has supplied its game-changing ‘Inventory Digitisation’ solution to one of the world’s largest construction companies — the Consolidated Contracting Company (CCC).

Immensa’s state-of-the-art facility builds and manufactures production quality parts, components and one-off prototypes for customers across a variety of industries.

With Immensa’s solution, the top Greek builder CCC said it is exploring ways to create a digital inventory of its spare parts and components.

"If we can get to a point over the next few years whereby a small percentage of our inventory can be digitised the impact will be significant,” remarked Engineer Aref Boualwan, who is overseeing some of CCC’s President Initiatives within disruptive technology implementation.

"What encouraged us to embrace inventory digitisation is simplifying the supply chain and the ability to reproduce items in remote areas when and where it is most needed. Also, Immensa’s solution has significant environmental benefits as it ultimately reduce the need to transport products across the world," noted Boualwan.

"Ultimately, this contributes to reducing the industry’s carbon footprint and cuts waste by producing only the exact number of parts that are needed in close proximity to where they will be used," he added.

Immensa CEO Fahmi Al Shawwa said the company was delighted to be working with CCC, one of the most respected names in the construction world, to revolutionise the way the industry operates.

"Today, it is estimated that the world sits on inventories worth more than $10 trillion at any single point, but if only five per cent of that inventory was converted to digital format, $500 billion worth of products would immediately have a much shorter supply chain that reduces transport, logistics, inventory, and storage costs,"  noted  Al Shawwa.

"At Immensa, we believe that supply chains and logistics can be handled virtually, and that 3D printing technology will transform the traditional supply chain as well as the logistics and warehousing industries. We are pleased to be demonstrating the potential of this approach and explore its potential with CCC," he added.

Through Immensa’s ‘Inventory Digitisation’ solution, parts and components that were traditionally stored in numerous physical warehouses will be converted into a digital format and stored in ‘Virtual Warehouses’, said  Al Shawwa.

Parts will only be produced when required using 3D printing and other propriety processes that reduce the need for companies to carry inventories, he stated.

Immensa Technology Labs is at the forefront of applying additive manufacturing services on a mechanical and industrial level in the region and one of a few companies globally that is offering full ‘Inventory Digitisation’ and ‘Virtual Warehousing’ services to companies, he added.
