New R&D Project – Building Structures with 3D Machine
Sarawak Consolidated Industries Bhd (SCIB) held a site visit to its factory located in Kuching to showcase its 3D constructions printer, which will be utilised in the company’s constructions projects.
The site visit was attended by the Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia (CIDB) deputy chief executive, Datuk Ir Elias Ismail and representatives from CIDB and its subsidiary, the Akademi Binaan Malaysia Wilayah Sarawak (ABM).
The 3D constructions printer arrived in Malaysia in September this year, and SCIB is working together with CIDB to carry out research and development (R&D) in the area of establishing standards and regulations for 3D printing buildings or structures in the country.
SCIB group managing director and chief executive officer Rosland Othman said the company plans to utilise the 3D constructions printer as part of its expansion plan.
“We believe that having the 3D constructions printer at our disposal will allow us to reduce the construction period for our projects, therefore allowing us to complete the projects in a shorter period.
“SCIB is actively collaborating with CIDB to promote this technology to the Malaysian Public Works Department (JKR) and many other relevant authorities, as we believe that will improve the Malaysian construction industry’s efficiency and productivity,” he said in a statement.
Earlier in 2021, SCIB purchased the 3D constructions printer and the design software from Denmark-based COBOD International A/S (COBOD), which is responsible for constructing one of the first 3D printed buildings in Europe.
“Currently, our engineering team is carrying out the installation and commissioning of the 3D constructions printer with assistance through visual communication with COBOD side.
“After successfully commissioning the 3D constructions printer, we will be able to demonstrate this latest technology by building a mockup 3D printed house at CIDB Sarawak’s headquarters site, with the demonstration to take place sometime in November 2021,” Rosland said.
