In­dia’s largest mak­erspace to come up in Hy­der­abad

Electronics Bazaar - - Industry News -

In­dia’s largest maker-space, a pro­to­typ­ing and de­sign cen­tre, will come up next year in Hy­der­abad and will have equip­ment worth over US$ 20 mil­lion, Te­lan­gana’s in­dus­try min­is­ter, K.T. Rama Rao an­nounced. To be known as T-Works, the fa­cil­ity will come up over 2322.57sqm with many part­ners of­fer­ing their soft­ware tools and equip­ment.

Mod­elled on the lines of maker-spa­ces in other coun­tries and cus­tomised to In­dian needs, this will prob­a­bly be the world’s sec­ond largest fa­cil­ity of its kind, the min­is­ter said.

Any­body with an idea can col­lab­o­rate with other peo­ple at T-Works and con­vert his or her de­signs into a work­ing pro­to­type.

“T-Works will al­low any­one young or old, school stu­dents, grad­u­ates or re­tired pro­fes­sors— man or woman—to col­lab­o­rate with other in­tel­li­gent in­di­vid­u­als and con­vert their de­signs on pa­per or a PC into a work­ing pro­to­type,” said Rama Rao.

Open to all In­di­ans, the fa­cil­ity will have CNC machines, cut­ting machines of all kinds, weld­ing and car­pen­try tools, PCB assem­bly machines, and 3D print­ers of all ranges.

“This, I be­lieve, is go­ing to change the way we do busi­ness, es­pe­cially with re­spect to the de­sign and hard­ware space in In­dia,” he said.

The min­is­ter said T-Works will help in mak­ing prod­ucts in do­mains like me­chan­i­cal, elec­trome­chan­ics, elec­tron­ics and the semi­con­duc­tor space. It will also help in mak­ing prod­ucts in the au­to­mo­bile, IoT, avion­ics, drones, med­i­cal de­vices/in­stru­ments, de­fence equip­ment, con­sumer elec­tron­ics, tele­com, mo­bile de­vices, gad­gets and sen­sors spa­ces.
