Mr.P.K.Ahammed, Chairman of Peekay Group has inaugurated the 3D Printing Facility of Peekay Steels at Bengaluru Airport City in a function in the presence of OEM customers from India and abroad. This 3D Sand Printing facility is  first-of-its-kind in the world. This facility houses a production center as well as an experience zone to learn 3D printing & ideate for innovative solutions. In addition, the facility will be used to train technology experts, to do research to up-grade skills, increase awareness of various 3D printing applications.

This 3D sand printing machine, VX-4000 from Voxeljet,Germany installed at Airport City is most efficient and environmental-friendly with no carbon emission.

Peekay Steel specializes in the production of high-quality steel castings, predominantly for the Oil & Gas sector, starting from 1 kg to 20 tons per casting. For most of these products they require less than four castings. As a result, the time and cost towards development of patterns can outweigh total project costs. For some complicated castings, that require non-traditional gating, the VX4000 was most suitable.

“We want to offer our customers an end-to-end solution and position ourselves as a supplier of high-quality, ready-to-install components in record times. With the VX4000, we are able to increase the flexibility of our production in order to be able to react quickly, even to complex projects. 3D printing gives us a unique competitive advantage, especially when it comes to expanding our business areas. Since the beginning, we have emphasized the importance of co engineering with our customers, most of these are Fortune 500 companies, to optimize and customize the product design, to lend better functionality and a clear competitive advantage. A specialized Design Center aligned to the VX4000 will help add value for our customers,” said K.E. Shanavaz, Jt. Managing Director, Peekay Steel Castings (P) Ltd. in an earlier press release.
