HKPC and HP launch joint technology centre in Hong Kong on advanced 3D printing 

Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) and HP has signed a collaboration agreement to establish the HKPC-HP 3D Printing Technology Centre in Hong Kong for application research development on additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing. The centre aims to become a pilot transformation base, applying advanced 3D printing technologies to empower various industries, sharpen their competitive edge, and foster the development of high-value strategic industrial chains. It will also accelerate Hong Kong’s pioneering effort in micro-factory and new industrialisation development, offering important references and inspiration worldwide in the pursuit of innovative and sustainable development. 

Clean, digitally powered 3D printing generates minimal waste and a minimal carbon footprint. This aligns with global goals of achieving green and sustainable development, while also promoting long-term economic growth through sustainable industries.  

In the future, the Centre, with its focus on customisation and precision, can be a game-changer in meeting the demand for hard-to-source parts, complex structures, patient-specific implants and other tools. This will enable enterprises, especially small and medium enterprises, to leverage advanced 3D printing technology and produce high-value, customised goods that can respond to market-specific demands in real-time, offering new levels of flexibility and efficiency that conventional factories are unable to meet. 

In the ceremony, Professor Dong SUN, JP, Secretary for Innovation, Technology and Industry, HKSAR Government, said: “The establishment of this 3D printing technology centre is undoubtedly a good answer to show how we make use of state-of-the-art technology to promote advanced manufacturing and new industrialisation in Hong Kong. I am confident that Hong Kong’s manufacturing industry will reach new heights, and ‘Made in Hong Kong’ will continue to be a reputable and brilliant international brand.”
