The Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park (SRTI Park) seeks to become the region’s largest and most advanced 3D printing technology platform.
SRTI Park is working with major international companies to establish an additive manufacturing unit that features large multidisciplinary laboratories.
Such laboratories offer cutting edge technologies and the most advanced industrial machines in the field of 3D printing.
SRTI Park has recently attracted several international companies leading in 3D printing, including General Electric (GE) that is working within the Park’s additive manufacturing unit through advanced 3D printing devices.
Also, 3DTIV Tech, a division at Modest Company Group, has been providing a wide range of products and services to companies in the Middle East and North Africa for decades, including clients in oil, gas and construction industries.
3DTIV Tech organizes with innovation park workshops for students and specialists to gain unique practical experience about latest 3D printing technologies.
Engineer Abdulqader Attia told A24 News Agency that the 3D printing method is used to turn a drawing or sketch on the computer into a real object.
– Soundbite (Abdulqader Attia – Engineer):
“We in Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park cooperate with international companies to develop and provide these devices and technologies to university students and international companies. We provide 3D printing services for iron and plastic printing to companies and medical, aviation and petroleum sectors. The printing method is that we take a drawing or sketch on the computer and turn it into a real object. We also organize workshops and training courses on 3D printing as well as exhibitions for 3D printing devices to foster future engineers in this field.”
– Soundbite (Kholud Al-Zarouni – Engineer):
“The laboratory consists of different departments, including electronics, laser cutting and 3D printing, which attracts most advanced companies, medium-sized project owners and entrepreneurs. The 3D printing department also attracts children through different programs and workshops to develop their skills and ability to keep pace with future technology.”
