HP unveiled its Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing solution in India. The company claims that the production-ready commercial 3D printing system delivers superior quality physical parts up to 10 times faster and at half the cost of current 3D printing systems. HP also announced Imaginarium and Adroitec as resellers of the solution across India.
Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP Inc. India, said 3D printing will transform the manufacturing landscape of the country. “We believe that digital transformation of manufacturing will be a key enabler of the next industrial revolution. 3D printing will contribute to democratising manufacturing and transforming industries, including the $6 trillion Asia-Pacific and Japan manufacturing segment. India is a strategic hub for this significant shift and we are excited to bring the cutting-edge Multi Jet Fusion technology to Indian customers across a variety of vertical markets.”
He added that the 3D printing technology will have a lot to offer for the country’s automotive industry. “We are working with BMW to evaluate where 3D printing can support the automotive industry. There is cost pressure in India and customers want robust solutions that are cost-effective as well. These are early days but we really see playing the role of an enabler initially for the automotive as well as for other sectors.”
India’s strength in value-added engineering, supported by the government local manufacturing push and adoption of digital technologies, presents an opportunity for India to benefit from Industry 4.0 transformation, Chandra noted.
