Intech Additive Solutions Pvt Ltd., Bangalore, India, has partnered with MachineWorks Ltd, based in Sheffield, UK, enabling it to license MachineWorks’ Polygonica meshing software.

Intech produces a number of metal Additive Manufacturing machines, including the iFusion series, and utilises its build preparation softwares AMBuilder and parameter optimisation software AMOptoMet. However, one of the issues still faced in metal Additive Manufacturing, is compensating for part deviations that occur during the build process. Polygonica has a number of advanced mesh algorithms that help AMBuilder tackle this complex issue, thereby enabling the successful build of a part with minimal deviations.

“We are, of course, very pleased to announce that Intech is our second Polygonica customer in India. Moreover, we are very excited to be working with Intech,” stated Dr Fenqiang Lin, Managing Director of MachineWorks. “Their undoubted knowledge and experience in the metal additive industry will help the Polygonica team meet the ever more demanding requirements of handling [Design for Additive Manufacturing] geometries. We look forward to seeing the new developments in their future products.”

“Murari Venkataraman, VP of Operations, Intech, added, “At Intech, we are working hard to accelerate the adoption of metal printing in modern manufacturing by providing a complete end-to-end ecosystem, from Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM), through printing, post-processing, and quality assurance. We’re striving to lower the cost of entry whilst improving reliability, throughput, and efficiency. Adding Polygonica’s world-renowned mesh algorithms to AMBuilder was an important step for us, and we also plan to introduce new and innovative software, powered in part by the Polygonica engine.”
