Think3D, one of India’s largest rapid prototyping facilities offering Additive Manufacturing, CNC Machining and Injection Molding, based in Hyderabad, India, has established Sinterize, a US-based digital manufacturing service provider. For the time being, all orders will be manufactured in India, but Think3D plans to install industrial AM machines in the US to cater to the needs of local customers.
“We are delighted to launch our service in the USA under the Sinterize brand. We got this idea to launch our services in the USA market in late 2019. But with the onslaught of the pandemic, our launch plan took a back seat and we shifted our focus towards manufacturing RT-PCR devices, cartridges and SWABs,” stated Raja Sekhar Upputuri, co-founder & CEO of Think3D. “With things getting back to normal now, we felt the time was right to launch the service. Having a one-stop-shop offering 3D Printing, CNC Machining, and Injection Moulding services all under one roof, we are confident of delivering high-quality service to the customers in the USA.”
Kishore Karlapudi, co-founder & CEO Sinterize, “I have been observing Think3D over the last seven years and what they have achieved in the digital manufacturing space in India in such a short span is phenomenal. Given the expertise Think3D team gained in this space, we felt it natural to partner with them to launch digital manufacturing services in the USA. We also have plans to roll out an online ordering process and a custom ERP to automate the entire end-to-end workflow. Our goal is to reach $100 million in revenue in the next 3-5 years.”
Upputuri concluded, “With a dedicated team of product developers, we helped around 2,000 innovators to date translate their ideas into functional products. In many cases, we are also their manufacturing partner for their batch production and mass production needs. With NPD, 3D Scanning, 3D Designing, 3D Printing, CNC Machining, all under one roof, we could provide seamless experience to product innovators and could reduce their time to market drastically.”
