BFW Launches India’s First Commercially Available Laser-Directed-Energy-Deposition (L-DED) Machines with Hybrid and Robotic Configurations

Bharat Fritz Werner Group declares the launch of India’s first commercially obtainable Laser-Directed-Energy-Deposition (L-DED) machines with Hybrid and Robotic configurations – The Photon 1000H and the Photon 1000R – powered by the Meltio.


Ravi Raghavan, MD and CEO BFW explains the functioning of Laser-Directed-Energy-Deposition (L-DED) machines with Hybrid and Robotic configuration to Minister Dr. Ashwathnarayan


BFW’s 60 years of experience in machine instruments offers it the potential and infrastructure to develop and manufacture a whole finish to finish vary of Additive Manufacturing options (Photon Platform) to exacting specs and reliability. The photon platform contains the world’s largest and quickest L-DED recreation changer Photon 4000G which was introduced in April 2022, now the Photon 1000H and Photon 1000R hybrid and robotic configurations. Your complete product vary of Photon platform is among the many most commercially enticing but extremely succesful applied sciences with sturdy validation in academia and industrial functions for aerospace, Defence, Medical, Die and Mildew, Power segments. BFW additionally prides itself in its functionality, dedication, and monitor file to supply world class buyer help for set up, commissioning, coaching, and knowledgeable consultancy to any buyer inside India and worldwide.


The formal launch ceremony for the Photon 1000 sequence happened in Bangalore at BFW/M2NxT headquarters on June 1, 2022, by the hands of Dr. Ashwathnarayan C. N, Minister for Larger Schooling, IT &BT, Talent Growth, Entrepreneurship and Livelihood Dr. V.Okay.Saraswat, Member Niti Ayog, was the Visitor of Honor and the occasion was felicitated by Mr. T.R. Parasuraman, President and whole-time Director, Toyota Industries Engine India, Dr. S. Devarajan, Sr V.P. TVS Motor Firm, Mr. Jaspreet Sidhu, CEO, Nationwide Centre for Additive Manufacturing, Mr. Brian Mathews, Chief Expertise Officer, Meltio, Spain and a number of senior authorities/business officers and specialists.


Throughout his handle, Dr. Ashwathnarayan C N, Minister of Larger Schooling, IT, BT, Science and Expertise and Talent Growth, Entrepreneurship and Livelihood, mentioned that the Karnataka Authorities is aiming to make the state – the nationwide capital for additive manufacturing, which is a USD 35 billion market globally and Karnataka is concentrating on to be a minimum of USD 1 billion market. He congratulated BFW and promised all help from the federal government for the long run endeavors of the corporate.


Minister assured that the federal government is able to collaborate with BFW for establishing a middle of excellence in additive know-how. Robotics, IoT, He mentioned that the State authorities is dedicated to working carefully with the federal government and promised all help for analysis and growth of recent applied sciences. Stating that talent growth is the federal government’s topmost precedence he mentioned that the state may have an enormous manpower financial institution and would be the provider of expert manpower to the world. The federal government is aiming to make the long run technology job-ready, productive, and acquainted with the most effective practices within the business. He mentioned that the business can look as much as the establishments in Karnataka for all their expert manpower necessities. The engineering curriculum of Karnataka is upgraded and is on par with IITs and all undergraduate programs are aligned with the nationwide talent growth program embedding know-how of their curriculum. 


Congratulating BFW for the launch of the Photon 1000H and the Photon 1000R Dr. V. Okay. Saraswat, Member NITI Aayog and Chancellor, Jawaharlal Nehru College, mentioned that at the moment we now have proven the world that we’re able to manufacturing such subtle machines for which we might have needed to rely on imports just a few years again. Additive manufacturing makes use of knowledge computer-aided-design software program or 3D object scanners to direct {hardware} to deposit materials, layer upon layer, in exact geometric shapes. Additive manufacturing’s capacity to generate nearly any 3-D form permits designers the liberty to create components that carry out higher or value lower than typical options. Additive manufacturing can simplify the upkeep and help of merchandise within the subject, lowering the necessity for spare-parts inventories by enabling on-demand manufacturing of things from digital recordsdata. Based on him additive manufacturing can change the basics of producing, and therefore wanted to be tailored quickly.


The Photon 1000 sequence can be found instantly, and boast, amongst many different benefits:


  • Photon 1000H: Totally built-in L-DED head from Meltio into any BFW CNC machine platform

  • Photon 1000R: Totally built-in L-DED head from Meltio onto any industrial grade robotic system.

  • Business first co-axial feed dual-deposition head from Meltio – for Powder & Wire deposition

  • Twin wire and scorching wire deposition can be found optionally

  • 3-axis, 5-axis and 7-axis deposition configurations can be found

  • Customary providing is with “open ambiance” and inert gasoline shielding

  • Inert ambiance chambers in addition to custom-made chambers can be found optionally


Printing small, medium, and giant components within the Photon 1000 machines might be considerably extra economical than different related L-DED machines at present provided by abroad producers. Such compelling financial enterprise circumstances carry recreation altering alternatives, aggressive benefits, and technical functionality to potential customers for freeform fabrication, hybrid manufacturing and restore functions for the aerospace, defence, oil and gasoline, energy, mining, and heavy industries. BFW has already put in Photon 1000H and Photon 1000R machines in its Dr. Abdul Kalam Centre of Excellence in Bangalore for contract manufacturing, R&D, alloy growth, in addition to to market & help the machines in India and globally.


BFW and m2nxt have launched market disruptive excessive know-how merchandise for the final six many years. Photon 1000 machine sequence is yet another such product line which is not going to solely carry know-how differentiators however can be the First IoT enabled Good AM machine,” provides Ravi Raghavan, MD BFW.


The truth that this world main metallic AM machine is being manufactured totally in India is a testomony to the Indian Authorities’s “Make in India” initiative and will handle very commercially enticing functions within the Defence/Area/Aerospace/Heavy Industries/Power/Academia and superior R&D sectors.


BFW makes a speciality of innovative superior manufacturing know-how platforms, with greater than 50,000 machines and techniques put in worldwide. BFW sensed the business want and alternative for value efficient and giant format metallic additive manufacturing within the Laser-Powder & Laser-Wire Directed Power Deposition (DED) section. It entered the DED metallic AM business in September 2021 with a mission to industrialise additive know-how and has a really Expertise pushed International workforce to drive this enterprise.
