First Post reports on a new unveiling by Azim Premji, Chairman of global software giant Wipro. Wipro has developed a 12,000 square foot metal 3D printing facility. This facility is located in Bengaluru, India.
This center will have “various capabilities including building up technology, post-processing, research, characterization, and validation facilities.” The cost of this facility was not disclosed.
“Wipro’s 3D printing business unit, Wipro3D, has been providing services to aerospace, space, industrial, automotive, healthcare, oil & gas, and heavy engineering sectors” throughout the country of India. This division was established in the country back in 2012.
Wipro “plans to take its 3D printing services” worldwide. As Wipro3D’s Business Head Ajay Parikh elaborates: “we see 3D printing as a critical component in the digital manufacturing strategy of any enterprise.”
Indeed, as the engineers and other workers at Wipro3D are quick to point out, they happen to be the developers of one of India’s “earliest 3D printed metal components” sent out into space.
With the addition of metal 3D printing, it has become apparent that Wipro3D is about to become a force to be reckoned with for India’s booming 3D printing/distributive manufacturing sector.
