New com­pany for 3D print­ing will be based at new fa­cil­ity in Dubai’s Jebel Ali

Channel Middle East - - Front Line -

Jumbo Group has launched a new com­pany and fa­cil­ity ded­i­cated to 3D print­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing.

The new Jumbo 3D Man­u­fac­tur­ing Ltd was of­fi­cially launched at an event at­tended by Saeed Al Ger­gawi, Di­rec­tor of Dubai Fu­ture Academy.

The launch in­cluded the open­ing of the 3D FARM, which has been opened in the Jebel Ali In­dus­trial Area.

The state-of-the-art fa­cil­ity utilises HP 3D Print­ing So­lu­tions based on its Multi

Jet Fu­sion tech­nol­ogy as well as sev­eral other 3D prod­ucts aimed at Den­tal, Ar­chi­tec­tural and var­i­ous other ap­pli­ca­tions. The fa­cil­ity will pave the way for easy adop­tion of 3D print­ing tech­nol­ogy for var­i­ous en­trepreneurs in UAE who are in­ter­ested in launch­ing busi­ness ven­tures with this tech­nol­ogy but are lim­ited due to the lack of fi­nanc­ing, tech­ni­cal know-how, or busi­ness planning sup­port. The fa­cil­ity also houses equip­ment for post pro­cess­ing, fin­ish­ing and paint­ing of fin­ished prod­ucts.

The fa­cil­ity will also of­fer a range of ser­vices in­clud­ing train­ing, busi­ness con­sult­ing for young en­trepreneurs, proof of con­cept de­vel­op­ment, prod­uct de­sign as­sis­tance as well as fi­nanc­ing op­tions for de­vel­op­ing a busi­ness around 3D man­u­fac­tur­ing.

In the com­ing months, Jumbo will ex­pand its range of 3D print­ers to in­clude the lat­est tech­nolo­gies for colour, metal and con­crete to fur­ther en­hance its lead­er­ship po­si­tion in the 3D print­ing-based man­u­fac­tur­ing in the re­gion.

Arvind Agrawal, Head of Jumbo Group said: “Jumbo’s 3D FARM will not only serve as a proof of con­cept for early adopters but will also act as an ini­tia­tive to de­velop a com­mu­nity of col­lab­o­rat­ing pro­fes­sion­als in­volved in 3D Man­u­fac­tur­ing in the UAE.”
