Additive Manufacturing Lab (AM Lab)

Additive manufacturing, sometimes called 3D printing, is a process used to build geometry out of a raw material without the constraints of traditional tooling. Generally, software is used to "slice" a 3D model into thin layers which are built successively onto a build platform. Multiple additive technologies exist, each with the ability to produce a variety of materials and geometries. Each machine and material has unique properties that should be considered when choosing a process.

Do you need a 3D part printed, but don't have access to a 3D printer or don't want to wait for a 3D printer in the lab to become available?
Try the MedTech IITK 3D Printing Service.

Project Manus in MedTech IITK run a service where Start-ups, industries and other organizations can submit 3D print jobs online, then we analyse and 3D print them for you and let you know when you job is ready for pickup include any post processing required. Entrepreneurs can learn a lot about engineering and making by learning the different prospect of additive manufacturing. However, sometimes you just need a part printed for a project or you may just start learning few others AM processes like ADAM, SLA, SLA and FDM.

Prototyping Service includes:

  • Design Analysis
  • CAD modeling
  • Reverse Engineering
  • PCB design
  • Machines Available

    Fab Lab/Electronics

    Introduction to electronic lab components or equipment's. Basic purpose of this electronic lab components article is to introduce you with electronics lab components and their use in electronics lab experiments. In electronic circuit lab, the primary piece of equipment that you will be dealing with is the Trainer Board. A trainer board is essentially a collection of most of the electronic lab components that are typically required when working with logic circuits

    Wet Lab

    A wet lab, or experimental lab, is a type of laboratory where it is necessary to handle various types of chemicals and potential "wet" hazards, so the room has to be carefully designed, constructed, and controlled to avoid spillage and contamination.


    Bead Blasting Station

    Bead blasting is a finishing technique for 3D-printed parts. It's an abrasive blasting method, which means that it is similar to sandblasting and water blasting (pressure washing). In bead blasting, fine beads of plastic, glass, or another substance are forcibly sprayed over the surface of a part. The type of beads are chosen depending on the part's material in order to smooth the finish of the part without damaging it.
    Bead blasting creates a uniform matte finish over the surface of the part. Most customers consider this the standard finish - build markings are smoothed out, but additional high quality finishing has not been applied. It's ideal for assessing a prototype, or for finishing a piece that doesn't need a "show ready" finish. Bead blasting also makes it easier to photograph parts because it reduces the light reflections from the part's surface. For pieces that will be used for sales meetings and trade shows, most customers prefer a higher quality finish.

    Vapour Smoothing

    Vapor Smoothing is a fast, effective way to achieve a smooth finish for your 3D Printed Objects. By using the ULTRA Vapor Smoothing System, 3D printed parts can be finished to a fine smoothness without losing the detail of the original printed part.

  • Consistent, uniform results to every part that is vapor smoothed.
  • Significantly reduced processing times from hours to minutes.
  • Smoothing of parts with complex geometries and intricate angles.
  • Easy removal of small layer lines.
  • Smoothing of most FDM thermoplastics including ABS and ASA.
  • Elimination of the use of flammable solvents like Acetone and THF.
  • Metal powder coat on 3d Print

    Metal powder coating over polymer 3d prints provides greater impact/scratch resistance and prevent the parts from weather conditions. This technology can also be used to enhanced the aesthetic appealed.
