Clinical AM forum: Advances in Patient-Specific 3D Printed Metal Implants – From Design to Clinical Use

Koln 3D, HKUMed, and Microcity are pleased to announce our joint collaboration in hosting a comprehensive 3-day course on "Advances in Patient-Specific 3D Printed Metal Implants – From Design to Clinical Use." The course will take place from 7th to 9th March 2024 in Grindelwald, Switzerland.

The congress will be covering a range of topics, including materials selection, production and post-processing techniques in additive manufacturing (AM). Esteemed colleagues from the University of Twente, Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, and the University of Hong Kong will serve as the course chairs. The course features presentations highlighting applied cases across different disciplines, including the optimized use of customized cages and fixation plates, TMJ and joint revision prosthesis, and etc., as well as discussions on some of the controversies and challenges associated with AM.

We cordially invite you to join us at this event, where medical and engineering professionals will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with leading experts in the field. We look forward to welcoming you in Grindelwald.

Hong Kong Laureate Forum: Exploring New Horizons 2024

Koln 3D is proud to be a partner of the Council of the Hong Kong Laureate Forum's (#HKLF) "Exploring New Horizons 2024" initiative. As part of this programme, high school students have the opportunity to visit local laboratories and innovative manufacturers, where they can engage in discussions with scientists, engineers and researchers.

This week, we had the pleasure of hosting students from Diocesan Girls' School (DGS) and Tsuen Wan Government Secondary School (TWGSS). By offering these students firsthand exposure to the world of medical 3D-printing, we aim to ignite their curiosity and foster a genuine passion for scientific exploration.

Hong Kong Innovation & Technology Fair

Last Saturday, Koln 3D took part in the Hong Kong Innovation & Technology Fair, alongside the Hong Kong 3D Printing Association (HK3DPA).

It was a refreshing experience for us to exhibit at a local sports ground, openly accessible to the general public, rather than the usual air-conditioned halls. It has been a great opportunity to connect with the community and showcase the practical applications of 3D printing in medicine and everyday life.


Innotech Industry x School Network Visit

Over the past week, we were happy to host students from the Tuen Mun Children and Youth Integrated Services Centre and Hong Kong Chinese Women's Club College for their field trips, organized as part of the Innotech Industry x School Network Visit programme.

The students explored our manufacturing site, gaining a glimpse into the field of orthopaedics and its applications in 3D printing, while our colleagues shared some their own educational journeys and work experiences, providing unique perspectives in career planning.

Koln 3D is incredibly grateful to take part in the programme and collaborate with other esteemed organizations and educational institutions. Together, we are committed to fostering innovation, and shaping a brighter future for our next generation.


CDIA Y-We ceremony

Koln 3D is delighted to continue being part of the Y-We work placement programme created by the Career Development Initiative Alliance (CDIA) in the upcoming year.

We are grateful for the tremendous support from CDIA and the Labour and Welfare Bureau (LWB) and will continue to contribute to this valuable initiative, empowering young individuals hailing from underprivileged backgrounds.
