Technology education, demonstration and trainings focusing on design for Additive Manufacturing
EOS, global technology and quality leader for high-end Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions, jointly with the Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI) on April 9 inaugurates the ESCI-EOS Centre for Additive Manufacturing at the ESCI-facility in Hyderabad. Anand Prakasam, Country Manager for India at EOS, states: "The technology offers a true value adds for industries such as aerospace, medical and tooling. We already see high market interest for it in India, yet market education is still key." And he adds: "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 (DMLS) 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."
Dr. U. Chandrasekar, Director of ESCI, concludes: "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 endeavors. 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."
