Immensa opens first 3D printing facility in Dubai

DUBAI, June 20, 2017

UAE-based Immensa Technology Labs, a leading additive manufacturing (AM) company, said it has launched the country’s first 3D printing facility. It houses over eight 3D printing systems and offers more than 30 materials for production.

Immensa was established in Dubai last year with the objective of being a solution provider bridging the gap between the uses of 3D printing technologies, materials and the practical use of such technologies.

It is the first privately-owned company specialising in the development and advancement of 3D printing in the UAE, said the company in a statement.

The launch comes in line with the ‘Dubai 3D Printing Strategy’ of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

The new hi-tech facility is equipped to build and manufacture production quality parts, components and one-off prototypes for customers across a variety of industries using a wide range of advanced technologies, it added.

Speaking at the launch, Fahmi Al Shawwa, the chief executive of Immensa Technology Labs, said: "There are ample opportunities for organisations in the UAE to adopt AM to enhance their efficiencies and competitiveness, and we are focused on providing world-class and viable 3D printing solutions."

"Our team is passionate about 3D printing, design and manufacturing, and we cover the entire process to help our clients every step of the way, from design concepts and material options to technology selection, 3D printing production and post-production processing," he added.

Al Shawwa said the company was focusing on providing clients with an effective, efficient and financially viable use of 3D printing.

"We solve our customers most complex problems by providing multi-material, digital manufacturing solutions. At Immensa, we can fabricate and produce objects that were physically not possible without 3D printing," stated the top official.

Immensa’s facilities in the UAE house a wide range of technologies including selective laser sintering, stereolithography, extrusion and material jetting.-TradeArabia News Service
