To complete the laboratories facilities and also following the development and advancement of manufacturing technology, Department of Industrial Engineering Universitas Brawijaya (TI-UB) brought da Vinci Pro 3-in-1, 3D Printers, for student practicum.

The printer of Taiwan XYZ Printing is placed in the Laboratory Manufacturing System (Sisman). Together with the first installation process, TI-UB held a limited training for lecturers and lab assistants, Wednesday, February 21, 2018.

The training with the theme of “The First Step to Learn a 3D Printer” is bringing expert trainer of product design from PT. Datascrip (3D printer distributor and office supplies), Arief Santoso Setiawan.

In his presentation, the alumni of one of Product Design campus in Jakarta revealed that the existence of 3D printer bring industrial revolution entered a new phase. The reason is that 3D printers are faster and more efficient than conventional machines.

“The features are different from the previous conventional machines. But it still can not replace the role completely, conventional machines still needed in the production system,” he said.

When producing a prototype, most manufacturers submit designs to vendors or partners, this process can take months for the required revisions.

Arief exemplifies the process of making a prototype of soft drink bottles. Coincidentally, Arief is a bottle packaging designer of one of the beverage products circulating in Indonesia.

“With 3D printers, we can speed up developing a new product or prototype. We can do it only in one day,” he said.

The training begins with a theoretical session at the TIUB Building Auditorium. Then the installation and trial session of the printer is done after the afternoon break at the Laboratory Manufacturing System.

Meanwhile, Head of TIUB Department, Oyong Novareza, ST., MT., Ph.D., hope that this 3D printer can be used for all academic community. This alumnus of the University of Wollongong Australia also hope for TIUB to be the center of 3D printing technology research in UB.

“Hope it can be useful for all of us, not just Sisman labs, but may also be used for integrated practicum,” he added. (and/mic)
