Globally, Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM)-used interchangeably with metal 3D printing-is redefining industrial manufacturing as we know it today. Metal AM allows enterprises to improve functional performance of components, achieve complex geometries, optimize weight, reduce wastage, and innovate on design, at the same time, achieving a significantly shorter "Time-to-Design" and "Time-to-market." Companies are future proofing, by adapting Metal 3D printing into their engineering, design, prototyping, and production environments.
Metal AM techniques broadly vary based on the type of metal feedstock (powder or wire), the delivery or placement of feedstock (bed or deposition), the energy source (laser or electron beam), the build environment (inert or vacuum), and other aspects that determine the interaction between the feedstock and energy source.
substrate / surface of the part.
Metal Additive Manufacturing, builds near net-shape components and a set of coordinated post-processing technologies is used, on a case to case basis, to meet the overall technical requirements of a component.
WIPRO3D is a leading provider of metal AM solutions and services to the aerospace, space, defense, industrial and tooling, heavy engineering, healthcare, automotive, and nuclear sectors.
Our solutions include AM consulting and road mapping, AM adoption, component realization services, finally moving up to design and deployment of captive AM centers.
Our component realization solutions are based on our competency to move from prototyping to short-series production runs, based on a strong quality framework, innovative business engagement models, and the core foundation of Wipro's business values. Established in 2012 within Wipro Infrastructure Engineering in Bangalore, WIPRO3D has become a leader of metal AM services throughout India.

We use our 4D engagement model to analyse the current adaption level of customers. We then offer solutions and services that start from Additive Manufacturing Consulting & Road Mapping the journey towards Additive Manufacturing Adoption, Component Realizations Services, finally moving up to Design and Deployment of Captive Additive Manufacturing centers.
WIPRO3D delivers a complete ”Select to Prove” lifecycle of components, using our extensive experience in Additive Engineering Design, Material Assessment Adaption & Substitution, Build Strategies, Post Processing know-how and Part Prove Out Considerations
Success in adapting metal 3D printing or AM within your enterprise requires a partner like WIPRO3D, who has end-to-end technical competence, consulting know-how, and multiple engagement models that allow an enterprise to experience, use, and benefits from the technology before making investments or taking a long-term position vis-à-vis technology.
Our domain experts work closely with customers' engineering, research and development, manufacturing, quality, innovation, and supply chain teams to deliver applications that span prototyping, production, and aftermarket services. We offer solutions in titanium, Inconel, aluminium, and other steels, as well as custom alloys based on customers' application and business cases.
We thoroughly understand the deep interconnection between additive engineering, engineering for AM, multiple build technologies and strategies, post-processing considerations, and finally prove-out considerations that are aimed at meeting customers' production needs. WIPRO3D's proprietary Additive Thinking Framework (ATF) for part selection and adaption for AM applications enables customers to ramp up successes in their metal AM Journey. WIPRO3D Quality Management System (W3D QMS) focuses on establishing a reliable, repeatable, and predictable system of achieving required customer standards. This ensures robust solutions for you as a customer and enables you to reimagine your components.
