The event’s key highlights on the first day were a special announcement about the release of CEMILAC’s certification for the HAL Lucknow component, an MOU signing between ASTM and CEMILAC on AM Standards, and MOU between IIT Hyderabad and NCAM.
Over the two days of the event, more than three thousand visitors from the industry, academia, research, and development centers attended the event. The event’s key highlights include a zone dedicated to the construction and manufacturing of healthcare additive. The visitors can see live product demonstrations, and experts from the construction and healthcare sector will be available to answer questions. To build knowledge, an two days international conference on additive manufacturing is also organized at the event. Speaker sessions and technical discussions are arranged on various topics during the conference and are free to attend.
Additionally, focused workshops on “3D printing in the packaging” and “Quality in Additive Manufacturing” were arranged on the first day to build specific knowledge and connect the industry. To motivate the start-up ecosystem, specifically in the additive manufacturing space, a “3D printing start-up challenge was organized by the AMTech team in collaboration with ASTM International and AM Ventures. Based on the entries in the first round, the finalist was shortlisted for the final pitch at AMTech on 3rd December. The winners of the start-up challenge will be announced on 3rd December, and awards will be distributed based on their pitch, which the bench of the start-up will access.
