Taguig City, Metro Manila– The 3D printing technologies and services of the Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMCen) is set to launch on 12 April 2021.
An additional facility of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the AMCen aims to be the first technological hub for Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing in the county.
The AMCen is a project co-implemented by the DOST-Metals Industry Research and Development Center (DOST-MIRDC) and the DOST-Industrial Technology Development Institute (DOST-ITDI). Joining the two lead agencies in the implementation of the AMCen project is Dr. Rigoberto Advincula, a Case Western Reserve University professor.
“AMCen aims to connect scientists, consultants, engineers, and other professionals from different disciplines to create a robust ecosystem that will speed up the adoption of additive manufacturing as an alternative to traditional processes,” Engr. Fred P. Liza, AMCen’s Program Leader and Chief of the DOST-MIRDC’s Materials and Process Research Division (MPRD) shared.
