The industry partners at National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM) launched their new state-of-the-art R&D facility at the Technology Development Centre, Osmania University, Hyderabad on 23rd of August 2023.
Smt. Rama Devi Lanka – Director Emerging Technologies and OSD to Government of Telangana, Sh. Jaspreet Sidhu – Chief Executive Officer NCAM India, Dr. CVS Kiran – CTO Skyroot Aerospace, Prof. G.D. Janaki Ram – Professor Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering at IIT Hyderabad and other officials from the Government and leading Additive Manufacturing industry doyens were present at the launch event.
NCAM partners i.e. Matrix Nano announced its Indigenous Plasma Spherodised Additive Manufacturing powder developed centre, Advaitech Studios launched its facility on SLA software development and new automotive component development and GreenJets UK entered India recently and is currently evaluating setting up cryogenic drone engine workshop and test facility.
The global metal powder market was valued at 6.75 Bn during 2021 as per the Fortune Business Insights report. The metal powders have a huge business potential in India and with local manufacturing at NCAM, the adoption of the technology will be further expedited in the country. Furthermore, SLA software development carried out by Adviatech will help in pre failure analysis of the machines and optimisation of the process leading to higher efficiency and manufacturing output.
“Matrix Nano is pleased to announce its pilot Spherodisation facility in Hyderabad. With this investment Matrix Nano will fulfil the indigenous requirement for spherical powders & work towards Make in India initiative of the government” said Mr. Vignesh Nagarajan CEO Matrix Nano.
“Advaitech is looking to address software requirements for SLA AM technology and parallelly addressing short run automotive new component development focusing on EV applications in India” said Mr. Aditya Sansika CEO Advaitech Studios.
NCAM will be putting focused efforts to collaborate further with more industry partners aiming local eco system development in the country. The larger vision remains to make India self-reliant in Additive Manufacturing Technology.
National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM) has been established by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Govt of India in partnership with Govt of Telangana and Industry. The NCAM is the apex body to build a comprehensive additive manufacturing ecosystem in the country by enabling the adoption of additive manufacturing in the industry, focusing on indigenization, providing access to state of art infrastructure, enabling research and development, and promoting skill development activities to generate quality manpower.
