Eastman and Korean University 3D Print Prosthetic Hands for Children

Chemical company Eastman, who has been providing their Amphora materials for filaments of manufacturers colorFabb and taulman3D, has collaborated with students at Chung-Ang University to 3D print prosthetic hands for children in need.

The collaborative project involves students on Seoul campus to 3D print prosthetic hands using the Amphora 3D polymer. Introduced in 2014, the material offers superior strength but also enables the production of detailed items, with low odour and low emissions.

The agreement was signed at the university’s new “Creative Factory” in Seoul, where faculty members and students will soon print and assemble the prosthetic hands.

Dante Rutstrom, vice president and managing director of Eastman Asia Pacific said: “Eastman is committed to making a difference in the communities where we operate and improving the well-being of the people who live in those communities. That’s why this opportunity to work with Chung-Ang University is so exciting. We look forward to the day when children will have their lives empowered through the work that will be done at the Creative Factory.”
