Wipro3D, the additive manufacturing (AM) business of Wipro Infrastructure Engineering (WIN) has launched an Additive Technology Adoption and Acceleration Program termed Addwize™. The objective of the program is to enable organizations and institutions to systematically adopt and scale the usage of metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) for tangible business benefits.

Wipro 3D addwize™ is designed to address all phases of the adoption cycle, based on learnings obtained from running a best practice metal AM solutions business. It has the right mix of competency building content, practitioner level technical insights as well as experiential elements, to ramp up additive manufacturing adoption at the right speed and cost.

The program is designed for stakeholders at all levels in in Engineering, Technology, Design, R&D, materials, Product Innovation, Strategy, Prototyping, Manufacturing, Procurement, Quality, Supply Chain and Strategic Sourcing across all industrial sectors including Automotive, Energy, Aerospace, Space, Defence, Healthcare, and Heavy Engineering.

Wipro 3D addwize™ is also ideal for academia and supports educational institutions and students build Additive Manufacturing competencies with the right fitment to current and future industry needs.

Wipro 3D addwize™ is designed and developed to support any organization or institution who is either evaluating metal Additive technology, has AM in their near future technology roadmap or has already invested in AM, create business value using metal AM

There are various programs aimed at driving AM adoption in the market. However many address specific and limited areas of Additive Technology, or are often driven by the eventual intention to sell hardware or software.

Wipro 3D addwize™ is multi-platform, OEM agnostic, systematically structured adoption program, that enables an interested organization or institution to understand the technology in detail, objectively evaluate a business case for the technology and then scientifically use AM to create business value. Mr Parikh added, “There is no lower or upper limit to the size of the organization who wants to evaluate AM.”

Wipro 3D addwize™ for Academia involves technology awareness sessions with Wipro3D experts and Immersion tours with direct insights into the operation of industry-grade metal AM operation and workflow, supported by case studies and assignments.

Recently, Wipro 3D, in collaboration with Indian Institute of Science (IISC) and Department of Heavy Industry (DHI) launched India’s first industry-grade metal additive 3D printing machine.

According to various Industry reports, in 2018, Additive Manufacturing products and services is projected to cross $20 Billion by 2020, with the Indian 3D printing market alone expected to be in excess of $75 million by 2021.
