“Rosti can play our part in helping battle COVID-19 as our service will enable companies to prototype and build essential products quickly and cost effectively using the revolution of 3-D printing. Not so long ago, a 4-week lead time for a prototype tool was considered world class. To be in a position now where we can 3D-print prototype moulds within 3 days truly demonstrates how technology can serve the industry, and coupled with the ability of Rosti Malaysia to engineer the final product into mass production really does set us apart from most other contract manufacturers in the region,” said Pat Williams, SVP Asia, Rosti.
