Sweden’s Goceram AB, a supplier of feedstock technology for Additive Manufacturing and Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) and of medium pressure PIM systems, has formally appointed the Smart Materials & Manufacturing Laboratory at HKPC (Hong Kong Productivity Council), Kowloon, Hong Kong, as its exclusive cooperation partner for prototyping and production development in the Asia-Pacific business region.

Dr Robert Pompe, CEO of Goceram, “Our business is nowadays mainly run from Hong Kong and we have been working with HKPC for many years, mainly in the PIM area. And they always perform excellently in developing and introducing this technology to our customers. HKPC appears, to our experience, to be the most complete resource in terms of machinery and competence, both within the PIM and AM, that we have seen, anywhere, not only in Asia.”

“They also have an advanced tooling department and some more than twenty different 3D printers for plastics, metals and ceramics – all this up to date for qualified development work,” he added. The partnership is reportedly also intended to further strengthen the partnership in order to meet the challenges in developing new customer relationships in mainland China and surrounding countries in Asia.

Goceram also stated that, by demonstrating the production efficiency of AM and PIM combined with low-cost operation on a local level, it can help to lower the entry barrier for many local companies to venture into these fields.
