Deltasys E-Forming, a Belgaum-based developer and manufacturer of 3D printing machines, revealed that it has delivered an indigenously developed concrete 3D printer to the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB). The 3D printer will be under the administration of the Structural Evaluation and Materials Technologies (SEMT) Lab Department of Civil Engineering and will be utilized for material research applications.

Deltasys E-Forming is working with all major research institutions in India to develop indigenous 3D printing technology in the country. It has also worked with multiple IITs in India for its concrete 3D printer. With IIT Bombay, it developed a gantry-style concrete 3D printer that was delivered to the institute just last week and will be installed at its SEMT Lab Department of Civil Engineering. This is a major boost for construction 3D printing in India as we see more and more technical institutes researching the technology.

This concrete 3D printer has a build volume of 1 cubic meter and is capable of building strong and resilient concrete structures. IIT Bombay, itself, will formulate the material as per its own research applications. The Deltasys E-Forming machine is able to process any third-party material and can process up to 8mm aggregate concrete including all kinds of plasters, cement paste, mud, etc. The aim of the lab is to use this printer to study the technology, and research and develop compatible and sustainable materials.

The Deltasys E-Forming concrete 3D printer will be highly useful for the advancement of the technology in India. By partnering with a startup, IIT Bombay is not only encouraging the startup culture in India but also sending out a strong message to the established technology manufacturers.

Deltasys E-Forming is a rapidly expanding company that has already delivered over 500 3D printers across India and is on track to deliver many more such printers in the near future.

“We have already sold 5 plus concrete 3D printers in India. Right now, we have orders for 12 plus concrete 3D printers. For one of our customers, we are also developing a large concrete structure (possibly the largest in India) that will be capable of constructing a four-story structure”, said Virendra Kadam, Founder and CEO at Deltasys E-Forming
