Tata Technologies is helping the Karnataka state government transform its Industrial Training Institures (ITI) into technology hubs. They have partnered with a number of OEM’s to deploy a wide variety of technologies at the ITIs. I’m proud to announce that 3D Systems is the 3D printing technology partner in this very important and far fetching initiative.
At the Aero India 2021 air show held in Banglore, the OEM’s involved in this initiative showcased their technologies at the Karnataka State booth and provided a holistic view of the new technology additions to the Karnataka ITIs. 3D Systems was present with cutting edge Figure 4 Standalone 3D printer which attracted quite a bit of attention from visitors. We also showcased a wide range of 3D printed parts in different materials to explain the breadth of our six 3D printing technology platforms. It was a pleasure to see Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh take keen interest in technologies showcased at the Karnataka state booth.
In a world where technology changes at a rapid pace, maintaining a high level of skilled man power is a huge challenge for any emerging country. India is no exception. It is my hope that initiatives like these go a long way in bridging the gap between what our industry needs and what our education system can deliver. At 3D Systems we are commited to do whatever we can to help the government give rise to a skilled workforce ready to meet the needs of industry.
