Materialise Opens New 3D Printing Center in Malaysia

Materialise is proud to announce the opening of a new 3D Printing Center of Excellence in Malaysia. The facility aims to become a competence center within Materialise for DLP 3D printing technologies, and has the potential to enhance Malaysia’s role as a driver behind 3D Printing in Asia.

This initiative will see local research teams developing new 3D printing applications, preparing 3D Printing applications for the market, and becoming a knowledge center within Materialise for this technology. The teams will also investigate 3D printing anatomical models and other medical devices with DLP technology, thereby providing valuable input 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 already count on Materialise as a trusted software partner, will also play a role in the new Center of Excellence through their collaboration.

“We are delighted to open this competence center in Malaysia today. 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.” Wim Michiels, General Manager of Materialise Malaysia.

The inauguration was attended by Mr. Fried Vancraen, Chief Executive Officer of Materialise, Mr. Wim Michiels, General Manager of Materialise Malaysia, Dato' Wan Hashim Wan Jusoh, Deputy Chief Executive Officer III of Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), Ms. Pak Mei Yuet, Head - Technology Innovation Ecosystem of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) and H.E. Mr. Daniel Dargent, the Belgian Ambassador to Malaysia.
