As a first step, Wipro 3D, the additive manufacturing (AM) business of Wipro Infrastructure Engineering (WIN) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) developed a native industrial grade metal additive manufacturing machine.
India’s first metal 3D printing machine works on selective electron beam melting technology and offers higher manufacturing rate, better thermal management, higher part density as well as mechanical properties superiors, Wipro, headquartered in Bengaluru, said in a statement.
Ajay Parikh, Vice President and Commercial Director of Wipro 3D, said, âThe country’s first electron beam fusion powder bed fusion 3D printer symbolizes Wipro3D’s continued efforts to indigenize, expand and industrialize technology. additive and speaks volumes about India’s technical and scientific capabilities. “
Benchmarking of the machine is ongoing and is expected to be completed in the near future, the statement said.
Professor Anurag Kumar, Director of IISc, said: âWe are pleased to see that our collaboration with Wipro 3D has resulted in this product development. “
Dr AR Sihag, Secretary of the Department of Heavy Industry (DHI), said: âWe have always been convinced of the capabilities of the IISc.
We are impressed with the speed that IISc has achieved working with Wipro3D, to execute the project, for a cutting edge technology development program.
