Bharat Fritz Werner, or BFW, India’s largest CNC machine tool manufacturer, has been taking steps to integrate (mostly) DED-based processes into its extensive CNC capabilities, initially led by AM industry expert Ashok Varma. After introducing Meltio systems in 2021 and developing its own Photon 4000G DED system in 2022, the company is now working with ADDiTEC to integrate and develop the company’s Hybrid platform, which was presented officially at the TCT3Sixty show in Birmingham last week.

Brian Matthews, CEO and Founder of ADDiTEC, commented on the partnership: “We are thrilled to partner with BFW, combining our advanced additive manufacturing technology with their extensive expertise in precision machine tools & engineering. This Hybrid platform represents a significant leap forward when compared to all other products on the market, providing a versatile solution that meets the evolving needs of our additive industry.”
