KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology) has acquired a Hammer Lab35 3D printing solution from Incus. The university is the first one in the Middle East to establish the Lithography‐based metal manufacturing (LMM) workflow.
Having completed the installation and training phase, Professor Carlos Grande from Physical Science and Engineering Division is planning to test parameters for the 3D printing of different metals for high-performance heat exchanger and thermal management applications.
Installing cutting-edge technologies such as Incus’ LMM in universities is extremely important for the development of additive manufacturing. On-campus 3D printing will help students dive deeper into material science and accelerate the pace of exploration of industrial manufacturing making KAUST a hub for innovation.
