In recent years, 3D printers are emerging as one of the key printing technologies in India. However, this market is still at its nascent stage while offering massive growth opportunities to various industry verticals as it offers greater precision and resolution to accelerate the manufacturing process. Currently, higher pricing structures, lack of knowledge, inaccurate machines and long production timelines are some of the factors hindering this market growth. This is in tandem with the vendor’s inability to meet each client’s unique requirements with its standard offerings. Customers are in need of an experienced solution provider with a proven track record that can seamlessly address the aforementioned market challenges.
Coming to the fore is Deltasys E-Forming, headquartered in Karnataka, with its ability to manufacture Robust, Reliable, and consistent working FFF & PELLET Extrusion 3D printing machines while making it affordable for rapid adoption. “Making purpose built custom machines is our USP. When a customer comes at our door, they have different requirements where they may want to print only one particular material and they need one particular size and machine inside chamber changes as per material and size,” informs Virendra Kadam, Co-founder and CEO of Deltasys E-Forming.
Ensuring Customer Satisfaction
He goes on to explain how every client has their own set of requirements and if a client is looking to print high performance material like PEEK which is applicable in industry verticals such as aerospace, automotive and oil & gas then the material needs certain print environment in the chamber. This can demand heating the bed platform at 150 degree Celsius and chamber at 200 degree Celsius and the nozzle head can reach up to 450 to 500 degree Celsius. Most manufacturers are unable to cater to such modifications with their high priced standard sized machines. Deltasys with its team of experts develop reliable and consistent working machines which are available at affordable prices. The company has installed over 250 big machines across India since its inception. “We have made machines ranging from 10 cubic inch to 2 cubic meters which can support various high performance polymers,” adds Virendra.

The kind of market presence the company commands today is partly owed to its highly Robust machines. Deltasys achieves this through ensuring its 3D printers start with a frame built with high quality steel as opposed to the plastic, aluminium or wooden frames frequently available in the market. “We believe the frame is one of the core components that keep the machine from losing accuracy over time. And through thousands of prints, the steel frame is able to withstand the constant movement of various mechanisms at high speed,” says Virendra.
Making massive strides in this segment, the company envisions further positively impacting this sector as the government introduces various initiatives to promote 3D printing. Deltasys recently received a grant from STARTUP KARNATAKA to develop a Big Hybrid Composite 3D printer which can be used to print and finish final EV Bodies at one go and to make larger moulds for the composite industry; to make parts for Trains, Boats and the defence sector. Virendra concludes, “In the next five years, we want to be pioneers in making large format additive manufacturing systems for Composite, metals and Concrete.”
