Wipro opens Additive Manufacturing Solution Center in Bengaluru

Wipro3D, the additive manufacturing (AM) business unit of Wipro Infrastructure Engineering, has launched a solution and experience center for metal 3D printing in Bengaluru. The facility was inaugurated by Wipro Chairman Azim Premji.


The 12,000-sq. ft. solution center has all the capabilities, including leading-edge build technology, post-processing, research, characterization and validation facilities. It is India’s foremost fully integrated Metal Additive Manufacturing facility, recommended with AS9100 Rev D certification.


With a range of end-use applications successfully delivered in four years, Wipro3D offers standard and customized Additive Manufacturing solutions, products and services, to industries including Aerospace, Space, Industrial, Automotive, Healthcare, Oil & Gas and Heavy Engineering.


With a strong ecosystem of partners including EOS, Wipro3D has become a solution provider of choice to industry-leading organizations.


Ajay Parikh, Business Head, Wipro3D, said, “India’s first functional metal AM component in space was built by Wipro3D. We have built competencies and offerings across Additive Consulting, Engineering, Manufacturing, Research & Development as well as turnkey solutions, to deliver impactful business outcomes for our customers. We see 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing as a critical component in the digital manufacturing and future proofing strategy of any enterprise.”


Several research studies and experts have rated 3D or additive manufacturing as one of the economically disruptive technologies. Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) has seen a steady rise in adoption across various domains and industry verticals during the last decade. Initially regarded as a pure prototyping tool, AM technology has evolved considerably and is now being used for series production. To reduce time-to-market, improve product performance and reduce product lifecycle cost, more and more companies are relying on AM as a strategy.
