Will cater to the advanced prototyping and production requirements in the dental and medical space as well as aerospace & defence, jewellery and automotive sectors

GE Additive has selected Imaginarium to join  its global sales partner network as an official sales partner in India. Imaginarium will resell GE Additive’s portfolio of metal additive manufacturing machines and metal powders which includes Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) and Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technologies.

The products are aimed at manufacturers across a wide range of industries, including aerospace and defence, medical and dental, automotive, tool & die and jewellery. With  the  aim  to  increase  the  accessibility  of  GE  Additive’s  metal  additive  manufacturing technology,  Imaginarium  will  engage  with  potential  customers  to  demonstrate  the  different applications  in  industry-grade  prototyping  and  production. This will help to educate and build awareness and prospective companies’ confidence to apply in additive manufacturing across their business. GE Additive will leverage Imaginarium’s network in the Indian market to drive adoption of its state-of-the-art metal additive manufacturing machines.

Some  of  the  key  benefits  of  metal-based  additive  manufacturing  technology in the dental space are on-demand manufacturing of crowns, bridges and in the customised implants and optimised supply chain in the medical space.

Czek  HaanTan,  General  Manager –Sales  &  Services  APAC,  GE  Additive  said,“Companies across India are starting to make good progress in their adoption of Industry 4.0, and with that comes increased interest in additive technologies, including metal 3D printing. We look forward to  working  with  Imaginarium  to  demonstrate  the  benefits  and  disruptive  potential  that  additive offers to Indian companies both large and small.”

GE Additive’s range of metal 3D printers offer a range of build sizes, including large-format machines  such  as  the X  Line  2000R,  which  is particularly  well-suited  to  printing  parts, components and systems for the space industry. For more than a decade GE Aviation has been using metal 3D printing to additively manufacture functional parts at scale for commercial and military aircraft engines.

Kamlesh Parekh, CEO, Imaginarium India said, “With the increasing focus on India as  a potential  manufacturing hub  for  the world,  it  is  important  for  the  sector  to  have access  to advanced  and  latest  technologies  of  design,  prototyping  and  production.  The Government of India’s upcoming policy for promoting additive manufacturing on an industrial scale will provide a massive boost to the uptake of this technology. Metal additive manufacturing technology has the potential to disrupt the  industry  by  catalysing innovation   and   enabling   the   production   of   indigenous,   made-in-India,   made-for-the-world products.  We,  at  Imaginarium,  are  excited  to  work  closely  with  the  GE  Additive  and  bring  this technology to the manufacturing sector of India and enable it to become truly Atmanirbhar (self-reliant).”

With  over  a  decade  of  experience  in  3D  printing,  Mumbai headquartered Imaginarium is a Rapid Manufacturing & Engineering Solution Provider, with a 300 strong team, with in-house experts and partners across industries such as Automotive, Aerospace, Defence, Medical Devices, Consumer Electronics, Jewellery and more.
