Intech Additive Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore, India, formerly known as Intech DMLS Pvt. Ltd., has launched a new range of metal Additive Manufacturing machines. The iFusion machine series includes the iFusion SF1 and iFusion LFMulti, designed and constructed at Intech Additive Solutions’ Bangalore facility.
Established in 2012, Intech Additive Solutions has been offering metal AM services to both the domestic and global markets for some time, providing solutions from concept design to fully-functional production parts for industries including aerospace, automotive, general engineering and medical. The company has business offices in the USA and Europe and has previously received strategic investment from DMG Mori.
On the launch of the company’s range of metal AM machines, Sridhar Balaram, MD & CEO of Intech Additive Solutions, stated, “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 optimisation and build process being sold as a package,” he continued. “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.”
The iFusion SF1 is a smaller-format machine designed for use in R&D laboratories, universities and other small-scale production environments. The iFusion LFMulti is a large-format multi-laser machine said to offer extensive features, designed for use in large-scale industrial metal AM.
“These machines are a culmination of more than 30,000 man hours of research, development and innovation spread over the past thirty-six months,” explained Balaram. “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, fuelling the industrialisation of AM in India.”
