A seminar was conducted recently in Khairatabad for “Additive Manufacturing Technologies for Aerospace Applications” at the Institution of Engineers (IEI). The secretary of Telangana State Aviation Academy, Captain SN Reddy explained the adoption of latest technologies in metal structures. He mentioned that in aerospace engineering, additive manufacturing is the largest dimension since it involves solid objects and the least amount of wastage. The significant advantages are that it enhances quality sales time and when compared to traditional methods, it can reduce the cost by up to 80 percent. The ability to apply for a higher design of systems is an important element in additive manufacturing.

A professor from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), B Ravi, talked about the swift innovation and customized variations of the statue of Lord Ganesha over the years and linked it to the growth in the manufacturing industry. Speaking about sustainable manufacturing, he spoke about the significant growth of additive manufacturing such as 3D printing, as the subject involves a vast amount of research and development. Additive manufacturing reduces the amount of capital that needs to be invested which allows manufacturers to maximize the productivity of their business models.

The chairman of IEI, Doctor S Satyanarayana, secretary of Aeronautical Society of India, Doctor Y Sreenivasa Rao, and members of the Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology (CBIT), Doctor G Rameshwar Rao and Doctor G Chandra Mohan Reddy were present among others at the event. The Telangana State Centre, Aeronautical Society of India, and IEI organized the seminar.
