Looking for an interesting winter vacation? Why not head to Mumbai, India for the Inside 3D Printing show? It will be held on the 19th and 20th of December, 2018. Inside 3D Printing Mumbai is in its 4th year and it is India’s premium exhibition for Additive Manufacturing. The show provides India’s largest business networking platform for 3D printing technology, where you will experience the ecosystem of the 3D Printing industry in India.

The show will be held at the Nehru Centre, Dr. Annie Besant Road, Worli, Mumbai.

A decade ago, basic 3D printers were sold in the Indian market to individuals or small companies. Then in 2012, four budding entrepreneurs applied to an incubator program in Manipal University to head the first 3D printing business in India, which is Global 3D Labs. Although there are Indian brand printers, the indigenous 3D printing industry is still maturing with help from foreign technologies and manufacturers.

In India, the 3D printer market is at the beginning stage, where electronics and automotive sectors account for the majority of the revenue. Low investments, fewer R&D facilities & manufacturing companies, and low consumer awareness is restricting the growth of 3D printer technology in India.

Yet, additive manufacturing (AD) in India is on a path to growth and the show features an AD forum to showcase applications and business cases for the industry to incorporate additive manufacturing (AM) into their production process. The AM Business Forum will feature application and technology and will be led by top industry experts from across the globe. Session topics will explore the ways to apply additive manufacturing to meet industrial and commercial needs in various industries. The main focus will be to provide the latest marketing trends, and developments, while presenting business cases from automotive engineering, tooling, DFAM, healthcare, dental, metal additive manufacturing and much more.

Several of the speakers are Nilay Parikh, who works as the Global Project Manager – Additive Manufacturing with Danfoss, where he is in charge of setting up the internal Danfoss Additive Design and Manufacturing (ADM) Competency Centers in Europe, US and Asia; Stefan Gronau is a research and development engineer from Germany in the field of additive manufacturing using lasers; and Rutuja Samant, who is the Additive Manufacturing Product Manager, responsible for EWI’s Buffalo Manufacturing Works AM portfolio.

Here are some of the exhibitors that you can visit at the show:
