Wipro Joints with IISc to Develop India's First Metal 3D Printing Machine
Bengaluru, India – January 03, 2020: Wipro and Indian Institute of science have joined together to build India’s first industrial grade metal 3D printer. Major software company Wipro and reputed Indian Institute of Science has established the business grade addictive manufacturing machine.
Wipro in Bengaluru said, "The country's first 3D printing machine works on selective electron beam melting technology and offers higher build rate, better thermal management, higher density and superior mechanical properties."
The new 3D printing appliance works on discriminatory electron beam gentle technology
and proposes greater build rate, improved thermal management, larger part density as well as higher mechanical belongings. The process of building the machine is under construction and will be completed in the future.
Wipro as a leading multinational information technology, business process service and consulting company is headquartered in Bangalore. The company was incepted on 29 December 1945 as “Western Indian Palm Refined Oil Limited”. The organisation was primarily set as oil refinery and vegetable manufacturing company.

Indian Institute of Science is a public deemed to be university for higher education and research in engineering and science and technology. The institution was started in the year 1909 and was started by offering a Master degree in Engineering and Science. Later in 2018, Indian Institute of Science was awarded as the top sixth institute of eminence status.
“We are impressed with the speed that IISc has achieved working with Wipro 3D, to execute the project, for such a cutting edge technology development programme. We commend Wipro 3D and IISc for participating actively in nation building exercise. We expect IISc and Wipro 3D to keep maturing the platform as we go forward so that it can compete globally,” said A R Sihag, secretary, Department of Heavy Industry (DHI).
