Today EOS, global technology and quality leader for high-end additive manufacturing solutions will launch the ESCI-EOS Centre for Additive Manufacturing in collaboration with the Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI) at the ESCI-facility in Hyderabad.
“The technology offers a true value adds for industries such as aerospace, medical and tooling,” Anand Prakasam, Country Manager for India at EOS, explained. "We already see high market interest for it in India, yet market education is still key. At the ESCI we will showcase technology capabilities based on a variety of application examples. We will also offer trainings with a focus on design rules for the Direct Metal Laser Sintering process, e.g. for the design of conformal cooling channels for tooling applications, to enable our customers to best unfold the full potential of this design-driven manufacturing process.”
The goal behind the project is to increase the awareness of additive manufacturing technology in key industrial sectors and provide the fundamental education needed by businesses to fully understand the benefits of the technology.The centre will focus on technology education, demonstration and training on design for additive manufacturing
Engineering Staff College of India.
Dr. U. Chandrasekar, Director of ESCI, added: "Through this joint collaboration effort we want to play a proactive role in building up design for additive manufacturing capabilities. Our organization can perfectly support EOS in creating more awareness among prospective users from various sectors and in understanding the role the EOS metal technology can play in their product development and manufacturing endeavours. The better a potential user or customer understands the basic functionalities and fundamentals of this manufacturing process, the better they can integrate it into existing manufacturing and prototyping eco systems. Together with EOS customers we also plan to develop some customer references."
