HAL joins hands with Wipro 3D for aerospace component development

Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and Wipro 3D, the metal additive manufacturing (AM) business of Wipro Infrastructure Engineering (WIN) have signed a pact to design, develop, prove out, manufacture and repair of aerospace components using metal 3D printing technology.
The memorandum of understanding also accentuates development, prove out and application of new material for use in metal additive technology, said HAL in a press release.
“This initiative between HAL and Wipro 3D will create a unique synergy of capabilities that can accelerate the adoption of metal additive manufacturing in aerospace in India. Qualification of parts for aerospace is challenging as it would require prove out and extensive testing followed by certification by regulatory authorities which may also include flight testing. This cooperation would be a unique opportunity for both the parties. Metal 3D printing has the potential to play a significant role in the success of national aerospace and defense platforms including HAL's own needs,” Shekhar Shrivastava, CEO, Bangalore Complex, HAL, was quoted saying.

Wipro 3D has recently developed the country's first industry grade metal additive 3D printing machine jointly with the Indian Institution of Science (IISc).
