“We were inundated with visitors to our stand, interested not only in TIM, but all the personalized products and services developed by PRECISE. Seasoned buyers and entertainment executives were fascinated that such advanced technology applications had been developed in the UAE, and are now being rolled out internationally from our Dubai base. We were pleased with the decision to take a team of 6 people to the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2012, as we were all busy throughout the show.”
Hohmann continued “whilst there are various exciting 3D printing applications being developed around the world, PRECISE is the first to offer competitively priced technology ready for use by retail outlets worldwide. A TIM business is very simple to operate because the retail outlet does the scanning and PRECISE takes care of the rest.”
PRECISE continues to develop the technology, investing considerable time in R&D, and anticipates being able to offer previously unseen 3D printing solutions for a wide range of industrial applications within the near future.
