An Additive Manufacturing facility is now operational at the Bengaluru Airport City, Hunachur, Karnataka, India, following collaboration between the Peekay Group, based in Kozhikode, Kerala, and Bengaluru Airport City Limited (BACL). Plans are also reported to be in place to install a metal Additive Manufacturing machine at the centre, catering to its aerospace customers.

A further aim of the new facility is to act as an incubation centre, as well as increasing awareness of Additive Manufacturing with a production centre and an experience zone. It will offer training for engineers and students, as as those looking to adopt AM.

“We are excited to inaugurate this state-of-the-art 3D printing facility at our Airport City and partner with the Peekay Group,” stated Rao Munukutla, CEO, BACL. “This facility will act as a catalyst to help transform our Airport City into a technology hub. From healthcare to sustainable construction and aerospace, 3D printing helps develop a culture of creativity and scope for scaling innovation across industries. This technology will further help consolidate Bengaluru’s strategic position as a knowledge-based economy, and as the Silicon Valley of India. A technology hub coupled with upcoming world-class retail, dining, and entertainment facilities will make our Airport City a truly global destination.”

K E Shanavaz, Joint Managing Director, Peekay Group, added, *“*With our vast experience and the trust for quality, delivery and cost which we have built over the last few decades, we are confident that Peekay can contribute immensely towards skill development, design-based thinking, and optimisation of products for customer benefit. Over and above this, we intend to tie up with world-renowned universities to embark on various training programmes and symposiums to nurture the enthusiasm and creativity in today’s youth by utilising design-based reasoning as a foundation to synchronise all manufacturing processes.”
