Metal 3D Printing - Technology of near future

Date : 18 to 19 February, 2021

Time : 1400 Hrs to 1700 Hrs


Metal Additive Manufacturing is migrating from research labs and premium complex non mass production items towards becoming an alternative technique for regular manufacturing. Its scalability, economics and feasibility is transforming very rapidly and a whole ecosystem for Simulation & Design for Additive Manufacturing on one hand and diverse application opportunities using different materials with configurable properties on-demand on the other hand.
In order to present latest update on this Technology of near future now, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising an online training on “Metal 3D Printing – Technology of near Future”.
