Drone Logistics Ecosystem partners with Sedaxis

To bring the latest developments in composites and AM to DLE members

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Drone Logistics Ecosystem (DLE) is partnering with Sedaxis Advanced Materials, one of India’s fast-growing companies in the composites equipment, 3D printing, and materials space. With a 25+ year presence in composites and an approximately 4 year presence in additive manufacturing using polymers and composites, this partnership is expected to bring the latest developments in composites and AM to DLE members.

This partnership can further help set up collaborations with companies, research institutes, and universities involved in the AM Centre of Excellence – jointly launched by Sedaxis and their academic partner VIT (Vellore Institute of Technology) in Chennai, India. Potential collaborations include education on the additive manufacturing of composites, technology implementation, pilot studies, and scaling-up activities. With a state-of-the-art center comprising AM technologies including SLS, FDM, continuous fiber co-extrusion, and resin, DLE member companies can now tap into the extensive benefits provided by Sedaxis’s AM arm for their drone design enhancement, performance optimization, supply chain optimization, prototyping, R&D, and series production activities.

“The global drone industry has important ramifications for border security, food security, near-mile and last-mile deliveries, healthcare supply chains, and more. As with any aerial vehicle, weight reduction is a critical aspect to improve both range and payloads. Composites have been proven to do just that and it’s time the drone industry adopts this as a standard for most of their products. DLE is an excellent global initiative for members to collaborate on product development, market access, consulting, and contract manufacturing, and we at Sedaxis are thrilled to be able to contribute to these objectives and help grow the safe and sustainable adoption of drones across industries”, said Mr. Vishwanath Godavarty, Head of Business at Sedaxis 3D Printing.

“What makes the rapidly emerging drone industry exciting is the unlimited access to new technologies that did not exist a couple of decades ago. The industry is driven by young entrepreneurs keen to explore new materials and more sustainable materials compared to the traditional aerospace industry that is limited to stringing certification processes. Together with Sedaxis, we would explore further the application of additive manufacturing for prototyping and small-scale production, while looking into implementation of manufacturing processes for scaleup and mass production,” said Dr. Ali Jahanshahi, Global Executive Director of DLE.
