DUBAI, 11th February, 2023 (WAM) – Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has announced the registration of a new patent for an adhesive device for 3D printers. The device distributes the adhesive material on the 3D printing plate, ensuring that the printed material sticks securely to the build plate. This is the seventh patent registered by DEWA’s Research and Development Centre (R&D).

The R&D Centre is responsible for supporting innovation in all production and operational areas and has published 134 research papers at international scientific conferences, journals, and peer-reviewed publications.

The CEO of DEWA, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, emphasised that this achievement supports DEWA’s efforts to develop advanced infrastructure and specialised in 3D printing and additive manufacturing. The organisation uses 3D printers to produce prototypes and spare parts for its generation, transmission, and distribution divisions, and to digitize its inventory.

The R&D Centre’s efforts are part of Dubai’s 10X initiative, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, which mandates the city to be a global leader that is ten years ahead of all other cities. The initiative supports the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy, which aims to make Dubai a global hub for 3D printing technology by 2030.

Waleed Bin Salman, the Executive Vice President of Business Development and Excellence at DEWA, stated that the R&D Centre has enriched the scientific community with specialised research and developed the capabilities of its researchers. This, in turn, enhances Dubai’s position as a global hub for research and development in solar power, smart grids, water and energy efficiency, and capacity building in these areas.
