swissnex India continues its collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay by bringing students of ETH Zurich and Zurich University of the Arts to the Techfest.
The Concept tool, a hammer drill, was developed by students of mechanical and electrical engineering, ETH Zurich and industrial design, Zurich University of the Arts (ZhdK). The main goal of the project is to show the potentials of Additive Manufacturing (3D-printing technologies) and its benefits for industrial application. With these technologies, complex structures can be designed allowing the integration of additional gadgets in the limited space of a hammer drill, such as electronic aides or a system to vacuum dust. At this year’s Techfest in Mumbai, two students will present the prototype and the key learnings acquired with Additive Manufacturing during the development of the Concept Tool.
