Very excited to inform that, Altem today hosted biggest ever Additive manufacturing event in India showcasing “Trends and applications in 3D Printing” in a seminar at My Fortune Hotel in Bangalore, India. The event focused on how professional 3D Printers could be used in RAPID TOOLING applications like Injection Molding, Blow Molding, Investment Casting and Jigs & Fixtures among others.
Recent developments in 3D Printing and Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) technologies are redefining the design & manufacturing processes across all the segments. The event highlighted how 3D Printing offers a fast and affordable way to produce injection molded prototypes.
Over 300 engineers from the Research, manufacturing and academic segment who work on rapid prototyping and tooling attended the event and witnessed how 3D printing revolutionizing this field. 3D Printing enthusiasts working in aerospace, automobile and R&D sectors were also present at the seminar and explored how best they can use 3D printing in their area of work.
3D Printing is an extremely valuable tool in the injection molding industry worldwide. It can help shorten the overall product development cycle and is more cost effective when only a few parts are needed. PIMTs (3D printed injection molding tool) can be built really cheaply and fast, ready to inject in a few hours.
It was very exciting to speak to Sriram Sulia – RJ, Fever 104, Bangalore. It is interesting and quite challenging to keep playing with his bouncer questions at a rapid pace. My colleague , Appayya Ramarao had made a nice video with images of this biggest 3D Printing workshop in India with an FM audio bytes background.
