Partnership with US company will add 3D printing technology to TechNova’s portfolio
TechNova Imaging Systems has announced an alliance with US-based Markforged, the creator of The Digital Forge – an industrial integrated metal and carbon fiber 3D printing platform.
Markforged offers an end-to-end 3D printing platform, with its 3D printers, cloud-based software, and wide range of proprietary, build-ready materials.
According to a press note shared with PrintWeekthe Markforged solution helps manufacturers solve problems at the point of need by bringing mini-factories right to the ground, transitioning to digital inventory.
“Companies around the world use Markforged’s The Digital Forge in industries such as aerospace, industrial automation, space exploration, military, defense and automotive to supply critical end-use parts on demand, when they need it,” he said.
The company believes its solutions will enable Indian manufacturers and designers to quickly bring strong composite and metal parts to market that are lighter than metal, easy to implement and use, backed by uncompromising service and support.
