Intech Additive Solutions introduces metal 3D printing system

Sept. 14, 2021
The company has launched the iFusion LF Series, a large-format range of metal 3D printers with a high build rate for cost-effective manufacturing.

Intech Additive Solutions (Bangalore, India) is the first Indian OEM successful in developing and supplying 3D metal printers based on laser powder-bed fusion technology. The company has launched the iFusion LF Series, a large-format range of metal 3D printers with a high build rate for cost-effective manufacturing.

The iFusion LF Series has a range that starts with a single 500 W laser printer and is upgradable to a quad-laser configuration with 700 W and 1000 W lasers. The systems are said to offer the lowest initial investment to procure and install, compared to other similar-sized metal 3D printers, along with locally available spares and support.

The iFusion Series, tightly integrated with Intech’s software suite for metal additive manufacturing, has a build volume of 450 × 450 × 450 mm and aims to deliver robustness and productivity at a competitive material handling rate and lowest cost per part.

This series supports a wide range of materials, including aluminum, titanium, steel, Inconel, and cobalt chrome, meeting the needs of industries such as aerospace, automotive, general engineering, tool & die, and medical market segments in India and abroad.

Intech integrates its metal printers with its AMBuilder build processing software and AMOptoMet software tool for parameter optimization. Combining the two software packages provides users with an end-to-end metal additive manufacturing solution along with local after-sales services.

The company has already booked orders worth $2 million (USD) from different industries and R&D.
