3D, the arm of Wipro, has been awarded a Lloyd’s Register certification for (AM) quality.

With this, the Bengaluru-based company has become the first Indian AM facility and the sixth globally to be awarded Lloyd’s Register’s AM qualification.

Lloyd’s Register assessment was made against requirements that included design data development and control, process and build control, and the reception, storage and handling of feedstock (utilising titanium alloys, aluminium alloys, cobalt chrome alloys, nickel alloys and stainless steels) for 3D’s powder bed fusion facility in Bengaluru.

“To compete globally, 3D has developed its own ‘best-of-breed’ additive manufacturing and quality system that is able to meet or exceed the exacting demands of current global quality frameworks like that from Lloyd’s Register,” said Ajay Parikh, vice-president and business head, Wipro 3D.

Earlier this year, the National Design and Research Forum had joined hands with Wipro 3D to work together in design for additive manufacturing of aerospace systems and developing related industry standards.
