Phillips and EOS Seminar Organised
India’s leading Machine Tool Solutions provider Phillips Machine Tool India & the global leader in 3D Printing solutions, EOS partnered to organized a seminar on Additive Manufacturing. The seminar was conducted to explore the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing in the Investment Casting industry.
Titled ‘How Will Additive Manufacturing Impact Investment Casting?’ the seminar focused on educating attendees about digitizing the pattern making process thus building efficiency and agility to react to the industry needs.
Additive Manufacturing or 3D printing is one of the disruptive technologies changing the entire manufacturing industry scenario with improvement in process and productivity.
While speaking about the motive behind organising the seminar, Anand Prakasam, Country Manager, EOS India says, “Through this seminar, we aim to provide a detailed understanding of using Additive Manufacturing in investment casting. We want more manufacturers to realize the potential of digital transformation, especially in a city like Rajkot that contributes so much to the manufacturing sector in India. By using AM technology, they will be able to enhance their manufacturing processes and improve overall business performance.”
Some of the key advantages of using Additive manufacturing in investment casting include the reduction in the number of process steps and lead time, increase in efficiency; a better option for the manufacturing of complex parts; more cost effective as it is a tool-less process, higher degree of accuracy and wider range of materials can be used.
“To further catalyse the process of integrating AM, we not only provide our customers with cutting edge technology, but also support them with the expertise of how to utilize AM technology effectively,” he added.
Toeing the same lines, Terrence Miranda, Managing Director, Phillips Machine Tools India, said, “PHILLIPS Machine Tools India is driven by our mission to partner with our customers and be their most valuable resource in improving competencies in manufacturing technology. Additive manufacturing offers exciting possibilities and EOS is the undisputed leader in this field. We are happy to partner with EOS in this path breaking technological seminar which is especially relevant to the vibrant city of Rajkot and its innovative industrialists who are always ready to embrace the latest manufacturing techniques and use these to grow their businesses exponentially on a global level.”
The seminar was attended by CEOs, R&D personnel, engineers, and casting designers among others from the related industry industries. Other aspects that were discussed during the seminar include how 3D printing can make an impact in investment casting applications, a comparison between lost wax investment casting vs direct 3D printing and the range of 3D printers available in the market.
