One of the world’s leading suppliers of state-of-the-art solutions to the printing industry, TechNova Imaging Systems has announced an alliance with US-based Markforged, the creator of The Digital Forge, the integrated metal and carbon fibre industrial 3D printing platform.
Markforged offers an end-to-end 3D printing platform, with its 3D printers, cloud-based software and a wide range of proprietary, manufacturing-ready materials. The Markforged solution helps manufacturers solve problems at the point of need by bringing mini-factories directly to the floor, shifting to digital inventory. Companies around the world use Markforged’s solution, The Digital Forge, in industries like aerospace, industrial automation, space exploration, military and defence and automotive to deliver mission-critical, end-use parts on demand at the point of need.
In today’s global market, this best-in-class additive manufacturing solution will empower Indian manufacturers and designers to rapidly bring composite and metal parts to market that are strong, lighter than metal, easy to implement and operate, backed up by uncompromising service and support.
C.G. Ramakrishnan, CEO TechNova Imaging System, says: “There is now a real shift in the industry from prototyping to small scale production. With Markforged’s Digital Forge, Indian manufacturers will have unprecedented access to both ground-breaking technology and essential fundamental infrastructure. This will enable them to produce affordable, strong parts in a range of exciting new materials while accelerating their speed-to-market and reducing inventory cost, spares management and long lead times.”
Amit Khurana, COO of TechNova’s Digital & Offset Print Solutions Business Group and head of the TechNova-Markforged alliance, says “India is standing on the cusp of Industrial revolution 4.0. With more than 250000 manufacturing sites available in India, the time is now ripe for taking a leap from subtractive to additive manufacturing.”
