Dubai Electrical energy and Water Authority (DEWA)’s R&D heart has registered a brand new patent for an adhesive system for 3D printers that robotically distributes adhesive materials on the printing plate – guaranteeing that the printed materials sticks adequately. That is the seventh patent registered by the R&D heart.
HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, highlighted that this achievement helps DEWA’s efforts to develop superior infrastructure and specialised software program in additive manufacturing – utilizing the expertise to beat challenges within the power sector. DEWA makes use of 3D printers to supply prototypes and spare elements for DEWA’s era, transmission, and distribution divisions, and to help the digitization of its stock.
“The R&D heart helps innovation in all manufacturing and operational areas, turning into a worldwide platform to boost the operations and providers of all utilities’ divisions. It helps DEWA’s efforts in innovation which is a key pillar of its work. 3D printing tasks launched by DEWA are well known by utilities worldwide. DEWA works to boost its manufacturing and operational capability by investing in these applied sciences. That is via its 3D printing program, which has been chosen as one of many Dubai 10X initiative tasks. The initiative was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, which mandates the Authorities of Dubai to be a worldwide chief that’s 10 years forward of all different cities. This system additionally helps the Dubai 3D Printing Technique, which is a singular world initiative to make use of expertise for the service of humanity and promote the standing of the UAE and Dubai as a worldwide hub for 3D printing expertise, by 2030,” mentioned Al Tayer.
“Along with the seven patents registered by the R&D heart to date, it has revealed 134 analysis papers at worldwide scientific conferences, journals, and peer-reviewed publications. It contains 48 researchers, together with 31 Ph.D. and grasp’s diploma holders.
