In a first over Indian Railways, Guwahati using “Make in India” 3D Component Printer

Maligaon, Oct 01: The Coach Maintenance Depot, Guwahati of NF Railway has started using “Make in India” 3D Component Printer to design & print coach components in-house as per requirement since 16th September 2020.

This is for the first time ever in any depot over Indian Railways that such 3D Component Printer has been used for making components in-house.

It may be mentioned here that, there are many typical items (like snack tray knobs, alarm chain pulling handle, coach door handle, etc.) used in rail coaches which are not readily available in market due to their unusual design and application only in railways.

This 3D component printer is specifically for making such items available immediately for fitment in coaches. Some other items have also been identified which are not easily available in open market due to their unusual design, application and for which sources are far and few for small quantity supply.

All these items can now be easily printed in-house and made available in short time to the usage point at much lesser cost than the make price (less than half the cost while sourced via a vendor).

This ensures cost savings as well as improves passenger amenities in our trains thus improving passenger comfort and satisfaction in trains. The Coach Maintenance Depot, Guwahati of N.F. Railway has been successfully utilising various new tools and methods to further improve the coach ambience so that passenger can undertake journey comfortably.
