Intech Additive launches iFusion series of metal 3D printers
These metal 3D printers, based on the selective laser melting (SLM) technology and the first of its kind in India, was showcased at the IMTEX Forming 2020 exhibition at Bangalore
Bangalore based Intech Additive Solutions Pvt Ltd (Formerly known as Intech DMLS Pvt Ltd), the pioneers in metal additive manufacturing (AM) in India, has launched a new range of iFusion series of metal 3D printers. Intech Additive Solutions, in which Japanese machine tools major DMG Mori has made strategic investment, has designed and developed these truly ‘Made in India’ technological solutions for the Indian manufacturing industry.
The new iFusion series of metal 3D printers - the iFusion SF1 and the iFusion LFMulti, designed and built at Intech Additive Solutions’ facility in Bangalore - is a significant milestone in the innovation journey of Intech and metal additive manufacturing in India .These innovative, cutting edge technology 3D Printers was showcased at the recently concluded IMTEX Forming 2020 exhibition, held at Bangalore from January 23-28, 2020.
Intech Additive Solutions has been a pioneer in the metal additive manufacturing in India providing end to end solutions starting from concept design to fully functional production parts for various industries such as aerospace, automotive, general engineering and medical market segments in India and abroad.
“The iFusion series of metal 3D printers, based on the Selective Laser Melting technology and the first of its kind in India, are designed for high precision, stability, reliability and to deliver unmatched performance with higher build rates. These cost-effective machines are part of Intech’s 3D eco system with softwares bundled in for machine parameter optimization and build process being sold as a package. The overall target of Intech is to reduce the cost of acquisition, cost of operations and First Time Right with a quick Go to Market,” said Sridhar Balaram, MD & CEO of Intech Additive Solutions.
The iFusion SF1 is a smaller format machine dedicated to R&D laboratories, universities, institutions and academies. The iFusion LFMulti is a large format multi laser machine with extensive features designed for the industrial use of metal additive manufacturing.
“These machines are a culmination of more than 30000 man hours of research, development and innovation spread over the past 36 months. We have 3D printed more than 800 parts for variety of industries in different materials. Along with our in-house developed Software AMOptoMet and the upcoming AMBuilder, we aim to create a full-fledged eco system for additive manufacturing fueling the industrialisation of AM in India” added Sridhar Balaram.
Intech Additive Solutions is a Bangalore based company at the forefront of additive manufacturing with business offices in USA and Europe. The company is backed by over 3 decades of manufacturing and metallurgical expertise.
Intech was established in 2012 and has been a forerunner in the field of metal 3D printing, revolutionising metal additive manufacturing with leading-edge hardware, software and end-to-end services and solutions for additive manufacturing in the metal space.
