  • The market for Laser metal deposition (LMD) is still in its initial years and is not used much in industrial applications in India. A few of these systems are mainly in R&D labs. Recently, the Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore) placed an order for a FormAlloy (U.S.) system for LMD. The technique has an advantage of faster speed and allows for new material/alloy development. It looks like both technologies, Powder bed fusion (PBF) and LMD, will be growing as the Indian government is giving a push to defense and aerospace manufacturing. (Source:
