2019 veski innovation fellow - Victoria’s new secret weapon in the war on waste

3 December

Victoria has a new secret weapon to fight the war on waste and improve manufacturing opportunities with the arrival of the 2019 veski innovation fellow Associate Professor Timothy Scott and his breakthrough 3D printing technology, developed in partnership with colleagues at the University of Michigan. 

Returning to Victoria to work at Monash University, Associate Professor Timothy Scott was officially welcomed to the State’s innovation community on Tuesday, 19 November by Victoria’s Minister for Jobs, Innovation and Trade the Hon. Martin Pakula MP, along with members of the broader Victorian community.  Click here to read the media release. 

His ultra-rapid method of 3D printing uses two beams of light, and light-sensitive resin, to enable high speed, continuous production, which could support agile manufacturing of low to moderate volume parts quickly and inexpensively.

Scott’s research is also focused on improving the quality of resins for these new generation of 3D printers, which can help reduce waste by improving the durability of products produced using the additive manufacturing (AM) process and offering a wider range of uses.

veski MD & chief executive Julia Page says Victorians should be excited about the increased speed of the new 3D printing technology as well as how quickly this new technology could be available for industry. She also highlighted the startup that Timothy has brought to Victoria with the support of the Victorian Government.

“We are excited by the early interest shown from industry in Timothy’s research, and veski believes that within the next two to three years Victoria will see this technology brought to market and a range of new commercial opportunities emerge,” Ms Page said.

“Timothy joins an impressive group of veski innovation fellows who are contributing to the development of game changing research, and I am particularly excited by how industry will take this new technology and use it to boost manufacturing in Australia,” Ms Page said.

The veski innovation fellowships attract talented Australian and international scientists who are working overseas, to work in Australia. The goal being to further build research excellence in Victoria as well as promoting local, national and international academic collaborations and industry partnerships.
