Titomic appoints permanent CEO
Australian metal 3D printer manufacturer Titomic has announced the appointment of Herbert Koeck as its new Chief Executive Officer. Set to take up his role on July 1, 2021, Koeck will succeed the company’s current interim CEO Norbert Schulze, who will remain at the firm, albeit taking up a different role.
Koeck joins from the U.S-based 3D Systems, where he has been part of its executive management team for over five years, managing its sales and global orders as well as contributing to product R&D, and prior to that, he was Managing Director, EMEA at Hewlett Packard and Senior Vice-President for the PC and Printing Solution Group.
“Herbert is a proven leader with deep AM experience, hardcore marketing skills, business vision and the ability to bring people together,” said Titomic Chairman Dr Andreas Schwer. “During this exciting time of transformation, Herbert is the right leader at the right time for Titomic. The new leadership team, employees, partners, customers and shareholders will all benefit under Herbert’s leadership.”
3D Metalforge leases 3D printing facility
3D printing service provider 3D Metalforge has leased a 1,858 sq meter factory in Texas as a means of expanding its reach within the growing U.S. additive manufacturing market. Once in operation, the new complex will become the company’s flagship production facility and regional HQ, housing its core marketing, operations and design teams.
The facility is also set to be equipped with several large-format industrial 3D printers, materials and related software, enabling it to rapidly fulfill client demand for services such as in-house part design, production and training when it opens in full, which is expected to happen by September 2021.
“Houston is the global centre for oil and gas and the most important corporate location for us to target decision makers and high-value engineering groups who service that sector,” said 3D Metalforge’s MD Matthew Waterhouse. “Having the ability to produce metal parts near to their end point of use improves the robustness and flexibility of our supply chains and allows penetration into [other] sectors.”
NatureWorks makes PLA plant progress
Eco-friendly 3D printing material manufacturer NatureWorks has announced that it has been given the go-ahead to build a new biopolymer production facility in Thailand by local authorities. Still subject to board approval, the upcoming PLA plant is set to have an annual capacity of 75,000 tons, and will produce its full portfolio of Ingeo grades.
Having gained approval from the Thailand Board of Investment, the firm’s complex will be built at the Nakhon Sawan Biocomplex (NBC) in Nakhon Sawan province, with the site due to open by 2024. Recently, NatureWorks also finished the plant’s front-end engineering design work with Jacobs, and it now expects to announce further details about the project later this year.
“We are pleased to share these significant accomplishments as part of our next phase for global manufacturing expansion,” said Rich Altice, President and CEO of NatureWorks. “The approval and support from the Thailand Board of Investment was a critical milestone on our path toward opening our new facility in Thailand.”
Xaar and BNI to set up joint AM lab
Inkjet printing specialist Xaar has agreed to partner with the Beijing National Innovation Institute of Lightweight (BNI) to establish a ‘Joint Digital Printing Laboratory.’ The deal between the firms, which was signed during a formal meeting of leaders from both sides, cements their long-running partnership, and Xaar’s commitment to continue providing BNI with technical support and advice.
Built around the joint expertise and technologies of the two companies, the new facility is set to focus on the development of new digital inkjet applications, such as printing 3D objects, glass, electronics and automotive spray painting.
“We are delighted to be partnering with BNI in establishing our Joint Laboratory in Beijing,” said John Mills, CEO of Xaar. “This important new facility will maximize our complementary advantages and strengthen our collaboration in the future development of digital inkjet technologies.”
Alstom expands 3D printing hub
French multinational Alstom has finished expanding the facilities of its dedicated 3D printing hub. Located at the firm’s Santa Perpètua Industrial Center in Barcelona, the revised complex now features a 3D scanner, ten industrial FDM machines and three SLA-DLP resin systems, effectively enabling its engineers to create 3D printed tooling and prototypes.
Between April 2020 and March 2021, engineers at the company’s complex were able to manufacture 13,978 individual parts, and following its expansion, Alstom anticipates that the center will be able to play a much bigger role within reverse engineering tasks, as well as providing support to other areas of its business.
“This new enlarged hub will allow us to increase the number of components generated by 3D printing,” said Jaume Altesa, head of Alstom’s 3D printing hub, “including structural, functional and safety elements; incorporating new materials and techniques that improve Alstom’s manufacturing processes.”
EIT opens “state-of-the-art” facility
Finally, the Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT) has announced the opening of a new “state-of-the-art” Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Development Laboratory at its campus in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. The facility doubles the capacity of its original lab, which had become too small to accommodate demand for its BCS Intelligent Systems major.
At the site’s opening, EIT partnered with Omron to showcase its ‘Cobot,’ which is designed to operate in scenarios where robots work alongside humans, to Hawke’s Bay industries. During future courses at the facility, students will use the Cobot to develop their skills, by programming the robot to recognise objects of a particular shape and size.
“We are privileged to have this sort of equipment that can do these sorts of things here at EIT,” said Fred Koenders, EIT’s Executive Dean, Faculty of Commerce and Technology. “It makes sure that EIT is relevant, up to date and progressive when it comes to our teaching and student learning. But the added advantage is that Hawke’s Bay industry will also get the benefits of this sort of technology.”
