GE Additive recently announced Imaginarium to join its global sales partner network as an official sales partner in India. Imaginarium will resell metal Additive Manufacturing machines and metal powders which includes Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) and Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technologies from the portfolio of GE Additive. The products are aimed at manufacturers across a wide range of industries, including the aerospace & defence, medical & 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 from GE Additive include:

  • Aerospace & defence: Complex geometries, reduced lead times and faster part qualification

  • Dental: On-demand manufacturing of crowns, bridges

  • Medical: Customised implants and optimised supply chain

  • Jewellery: Manufacturing unrealised designs

  • Automotive: Quick prototypes, low-volume production

  • Tool & die Industry: Conformal cooling channels

Expressing his views on the progress made by Indian companies and adoption of Industry 4.0, Czek Haan Tan, General Manager – Sales & Services APAC, GE Additive, noted, “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.”

Elaborating further, Kamlesh Parekh, CEO, Imaginarium India, expounded, “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).”
