US-based company Chronos Imaging which focuses on development, manufacturing and distribution of diagnostic imaging medical devices has recently set up an X-ray Tube facility at India's first medical device park – Andhra Med Tech Zone (AMTZ), Visakhapatnam. The company is planning to invest more on such facilities.

Equipped with world class equipment sourced from internationally leading firms, the X-ray Tube facility at AMTZ has a team of highly qualified and experienced scientists, engineers and physicists working meticulously on this national project.

Initially, X-ray tube will be manufactured with its assembly for both general radiography and CT machines by 2020 from the facility established at AMTZ. Further this facility would help to manufacture customised X-ray Tube for the dedicated machines used in various science, engineering, paramedical and other industries namely- nano-technology, veterinary, pharmacology, agro, metallurgy, space and electronics.

AMTZ has also evinced interest from a major player in the field of energy - Energy Vault, an Idealab company that develops renewable energy storage products. The company brings an experience of over 30 years in technology innovation and turning ideas into practical and scalable solutions. Energy vault has also proposed to bring its expertise to set up renewable energy facility at AMTZ

Chronos Imaging represented by Robert Piconi and Energy Vault represented by Bill Gross held discussions regarding future investments with Dr Jitendar Sharma, MD & CEO, AMTZ and Special Chief Secretary Dr Poonam Malakondiah in the presence of Information Technology (IT) minister of Andhra Pradesh Sri Nara Lokesh during the three-day World Economic Forum summit which was held at Davos-Klosters, Switzerland from 22 January to 25 January 2019.

Kalam Institute of Health Technology (KIHT), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CGCRI), Kolkata have also collaborated at AMTZ, Visakhapatnam to reduce import dependency in the biomedical implant and biomaterial sector.

As part of the collaboration, KIHT will facilitate innovations of CSIR-CGCRI using its e-Auction portal where interested Indian manufacturers can bid for their technologies and start indigenous manufacturing.

CSIR-CGCRI is a national lab which carries out applied research in the fields of bio active coating for orthopaedic and dental application, ceramic based hip joint prostheses and hydroxyapatite based integrated orbital implants. As of today glass and ceramics are widely used in bio-implants.
