Altem Technologies, one of India’s leading 3D Digital Solutions resellers, unveiled and introduced the Stratasys F770 3D printer in India last week at its new 3D Innovation Centre in Bengaluru. The event was held in front of the company’s esteemed clients as well as industry leaders from the aerospace, automotive, consumer product, education, healthcare and other sectors.
Leaders from Collins Aerospace, Capgemini, Intel, Honeywell, Stove Kraft, Tata Elxsi, Schneider, CABS, ISRO, Peekay Steel Casting and other organisations graced the event and interacted with the other participants.
In addition to the large-format 3D printer, Altem Technologies also inaugurated its 3D innovation Centre in Bengaluru, located in Koramangala. All attendees were led to the innovation centre to explore, first-hand, the Stratasys technologies on display.
Stratasys F770 3D Printer in India
Among Stratasys FDM systems, the Stratasys F770 has one of the highest print volumes. The F770 has over 13 cubic feet of build volume and the widest build chamber (X direction) of any Stratasys FDM 3D printer, allowing it to build large parts or large assortments of smaller parts.
Jigs and fixtures, prototyping, and even end-user parts are among its primary applications. Currently, the printer can only print with ABS-M30, a strong, tough thermoplastic that is suitable for a wide range of 3D printing applications, and ASA, which is similar to ABS but is UV resistant and produces a smoother printed surface. It also employs the SR-30 soluble material, which is used as a support material in the construction of complex parts.
Abhishek Kalra, the Associate Vice President at Altem Technologies, led the unveiling and discussed the issues plaguing various industries such as delayed product innovation, long product development timelines, delayed prototyping, and, of course, the costs associated with small volume production. He described how the most recent Stratasys machine addresses and solves these prevailing problems. By sharing relevant case studies and customer solutions he put forth the benefits of having a system like the Stratasys F770.
Altem’s 3D Innovation Centre in Bengaluru
The Altem Technologies 3D Innovation Centre (https://goo.gl/maps/ELHBScwSGSDizh8o6) is a 1,500 sq feet space housing the Stratasys 3D printer line-up/ecosystem as well as experts to guide and share technical information with visitors and participants.
As Abhishek Kalra stated in his session, Altem provides all solutions from “Art to Part,” which is evident when visiting the innovation centre. As you enter the centre, you will be transported to the world of 3D printing, where you will see multiple FDM and Polyjet machines, Bioprinters, 3D scanners,Design Softwares and even samples of high-quality 3D printed parts.
Right now the centre is equipped with 5 state of the art Polymer 3D Printers (Stratasys F770, Stratasys F170 and J5, J35 and Origin One), 3 Industrial grade 3D Scanners (Artec Eva, Space Spider and Leo) and design, simulation, and engineering software tools.
Altem Technologies is an end-to-end 3D Technologies company providing solutions from Design to Production which are used in and to improve product development for manufacturing driven industries. This includes Product Design, Simulation and Analysis (Virtual Engineering), 3D Scanning and Reverse Engineering, Rapid Prototyping, Inspection, Tooling and Production Design. The purpose of the 3D Innovation centre was to bring all solutions under one roof so customers can come here and experience all the capabilities that Altem has to offer. Altem also runs pilots, services projects, and benchmarks. The centre also houses technical support teams to help visitors with necessary technical information.
Manufactur3D, India’s leading media organisation, was invited as a media entity to witness the event and experience the machine and Innovation Centre. Abhimanyu Chavan, director of Manufactur3D, attended the event and interacted with the Altem team.
Right now, visitors can visit the centre only through prior appointments and interested people may interact with the Altem sales teams and book slots. Altem has a dedicated team of Application Engineers present at the venue who can guide the visitors through the centre and share information about the technologies.
