Bengaluru, India – Intech Additive Solutions Pvt Ltd, the first Indian OEM successful in developing and supplying 3D metal printers based on laser powder bed fusion technology (LPBF) for industrial manufacturing, received multiple orders worth US$ 2 million for its ‘Made in India’ Metal AM systems, in the last quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021.
The orders include the sale of a combined total of six Metal AM Systems, iFusion SF1, and iFusion LF1, configured with Pre-build software AMBuilder to five organisations, including Indo-MIM, a leading global supplier of Metal Injection Molding components catering to Aerospace, Medical, and Oil & Gas industries, Pandit Deendayal Energy University (PDEU) - for applications in Energy and Energy infrastructure, Poeir Jets - an Indian OEM for Heavy-lift Drones and two more renowned organizations in India.
The company became the country’s first OEM to indigenously develop, manufacture, and sell its ‘iFusion’ series of Metal AM systems, along with its Build Processing software ‘AMBuilder’ and parameter optimization software ‘AMOptoMet’, both developed in-house. Combining the two software packages with the company’s printers provides users with an end-to-end metal AM solution along with local after-sales support. Despite strong competition from global majors, these integrated systems have quickly gained market acceptance.
