Materialise, the Belgian global leader in 3D printing solutions, today announced the signing of a multi-party Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between EOS GmbH India Office, Delta Rapid 3D and Presidency University, to conduct Industrial AM Consultancy projects/trainings in India for Industries and train students through its industrial AM Centre of Excellence (COE) on AM part screening, DFAM, identify components for AM.
The parties involved EOS GmbH India Office, the Germany-based leading supplier for responsible manufacturing solutions via industrial 3D printing technology, Delta Rapid 3D, an Industrial Additive Manufacturing solutions provider, and Presidency University, a premier private university located in Bangalore will also create business cases for education institutes and industries to adapt industrial AM solutions for 3D printing.
AM Consultancy Projects/Trainings in India
Through this new MoU, Materialise will play a critical role in spearheading AM advancement in India’s Higher & Technical Education sector through private-public collaboration projects.
The Presidency University, Bengaluru, is a critical cog in the wheel of this MoU. It has committed to shaping the lives of students through scholarly exposure, pedagogy, and learning, and to preparing the youth for the world at large.
According to the agreement, Presidency University has established an Industrial Additive Manufacturing Centre (Centre of Excellence) in July of this year with a Sintratec SLS 3D Printer and has been working since then towards streamline the training process and integrating 3D printing technologies to educate the industries.
The multi-party MoU lays the groundwork for a collaborative approach to spreading 3D printing technology in India. India has enormous potential, but technology awareness is a major challenge. Programmes carried out under the recent MoU will go a long way toward increasing technology adoption in the country by educating and training the students and MSMEs and also increasing the pool of workforce trained in additive manufacturing.
