For this first 3dpbm Pulse Podcast of 2022, our guest is Pir Arkam, Founder & CEO of Proto21.
For those who are not familiar with it, Proto21 is a 3D printing service based in Dubai which is behind some of the most fascinating and interesting application and volume production cases for the use of 3D printing across a multitude of industrial segments.
The company was founded in 2018 by Arkam, a mechatronics professional with 9 years of expertise and industry knowledge in additive manufacturing. Thanks to his hard work, determination, and commitment, Proto21 has rapidly become a leader and one of the fastest-growing companies in 3D printing for the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region.
In this episode of the 3dpbm Pulse Podcast, we speak with Pir Arkam about how he built a successful 3D printing company in such a short time, the importance of building a great team, choosing the right AM technology and his outlook is for the growth of 3D printing in MENA and beyond.
Among several great projects, 3D Printing Media Network recently covered one of the largest ever carried out by Pir Arkam and his Proto21 team (or by any 3D printing service provider): a 32-meter long modular facade for the adidas flagship store in Dubai, built on Proto21’s farm of modified Prusa 3D printers.
Below are just a few of the impressive 3D printing jobs completed by Proto21 in the past couple of months.
