Used Trucks For Sale In El Paso, 3D printing company sets up U.S. headquarters in El Paso-The new 3D printer at the University of Texas at El Paso can “print” anything from the exact replica baseball diamond, no larger than the pea bean to hunt pieces.
Printing technology is developed by German company 3D Aconity, which on Tuesday will establish its North American headquarters in El Paso through a partnership with UTEP.
“We hope this will act as a catalyst for economic development in this region,” said UTEP President Diana Natalicio. “One of our dreams at UTEP was to develop our reputation for research and doctoral education at a level that attracts companies from the 21st century.” Aconity 3D, Herzogenrath in Germany, Keck Center for 3D Innovation, which will work closely with a company in Germany.
“We hope to establish a relationship with UTEP,” said Yves Hagedorn, CEO of Aconity3D. “This is an excellent example of how research universities can work with the private sector to improve educational opportunities for students and stimulate economic development in the region.”

Keck Center Maker, Ryan Wicker, said he hoped the partnership could lead to further progress in manufacturing and technological progress.
At Keck Center, students and UTEP staff use 3D printers to research and develop advanced production technologies. Staff and students were involved in projects that use 3D printers to produce miniature satellites, large military aviation instruments, and parts for manufacturers.
“We can do a kind of research that is truly innovative,” Wicker said.
The UTEP engineering department students have access to Aconity technology and can use the tools for research and production of tools.
“This is one of the few educational institutions in the country where students can gain the practical experience of 3D printing technology,” said Syed Zia Uddin, a master student at UTEP College of Engineering.
Uddin said he went to other colleges with 3D printers and it seemed strange when he said that UTEP students could explore technology for projects and projects.
“In other places, only people are using it,” he said.
Uddin expressed hope that partnership with Aconity will bring better opportunities for UTEP students. He wants UTEP to remain the leader in 3D printing research.
Wicker said he had met the founder of Aconity before the company was founded and began speaking at a conference in Portugal in 2013. When Aconity was created, UTEP was one of the first to buy their systems, said Wicker,
3D printers, also known as the production of additives, work to create an object with tiny layers of molten material, often plastic or metal. The difference between Aconity’s 3D printing technology and the other lies in its control and precision.
Wicker said that the software system of the printer and the high performance camera system allow the user to control every detail while cutting metal. Their systems can be heated up to 1832 degrees Celsius. Natalicio said that the university is working to promote economic development in the community. Many UTEP graduates eventually went to the city looking for a job and Natalicio said that not only did he want students get high quality education but also find jobs in El Paso.
“They are students looking for $ 100,000 a year, just from school,” he said. “Think of such things as homes, cars, and everything you do to create a prosperous life and quality of life in this area.”
