Intech Additive Solutions Pvt Ltd. (Intech) has announced that it has signed a definite agreement with Bengaluru based Poeir Jets for supply of its new large format range of metal 3D printers - the ‘iFusion LF series’. Poeir Jets has already begun printing larger parts with these printers for its production needs.
“These 3D printers helped us achieve the required scale for commercialising manufacturing and ensuring lower cost per part. We are now moving to printing parts on Intech’s LF series of machines. The LF's larger build envelope suits our needs to print parts for our engine and Hybrid Drones. This, coupled with the lower costs compared to imported systems, local spares and support availability among other things, make it an automatic choice for us,” said K S Swami, Director, Poeir Jets.
“Indian companies have a huge interest in 3D Printers that build parts larger than 400mm. All these machines must be imported and are prohibitively expensive. There are other issues like long lead times for support and spares, making Indian companies ultimately settle for the less expensive mid-sized machines. Our 3D printers amply fill this void,” said Pradeep Nair, VP-Hardware Sales, Intech. “The system supports a wide range of materials like aluminium, titanium, steel, Inconel and cobalt chrome addressing the needs of industries such as aerospace, automotive, general engineering, tool & die and medical market segments in india and abroad.”
“The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has identified Additive Manufacturing (AM) as a critical focus area. The Government plans to promote various AM sector verticals including machines, materials, software, and design methodologies to leverage new and untapped business opportunities. This initiative will prepare the Indian manufacturing sector for Industry 4.0 and evolve an integrated approach towards this emerging technology,” said Sridhar Balaram, CEO of Intech.”
