Cyient is a global engineering, manufacturing, and digital technology solutions company founded in India and with offices worldwide. Strengthening its design-led manufacturing capabilities, Cyient has purchased a new SLM 280 system following international support from SLM Solutions. It will be integrated into the company’s first metal additive manufacturing facility in Jupiter, Florida.

With over 80 trained engineers in design optimization, Cyient looks to further enhance its capabilities in additive manufacturing with in-house manufacturing solutions. Referring to the new development, Rajendra Velagapudi, SVP & Global Operation Head – Design Led Manufacturing, Cyient, commented: “Cyient has successfully designed and manufactured metal additive components for some of its key customers—our most recent achievement being the delivery of tooling components for a large aircraft engine manufacturer. The new SLM 280 will enable us to offer manufactured components directly to our customers in the aerospace, defense, medical and energy industries. This is very important for our road to becoming an end-to-end additive manufacturing solutions provider”.

Commenting on the partnership, Sam O’Leary, CEO, SLM Solutions, said: “SLM Solutions and Cyient share synergies across geographies and industries, which will allow us to take a global approach in supporting their growth. SLM Solutions has established expertise and customer base across aerospace, defense, medical, oil and gas, and energy, which are also critical sectors for Cyient. We are actively consulting and supporting our Indian and US offices as Cyient integrates into strategic manufacturing supply chains worldwide. We are thrilled to work together as it grows its product offerings with selective laser melting”.
