HOW IS ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING USED?

Posted September 22nd 2015

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is used in a variety of different industries in a variety of different ways. While not the most popular form of manufacturing, it is quickly gaining recognition for fast, simple, and low-cost manufacturing of both small run and large run components. Especially for the production of metal parts, though the applications are without limit. Because additive manufacturing is so versatile, it can be used across a wide variety of industries to make a wide variety of products, including:

· Visualizations of designs – There is something different between designing something on CAD and actually holding it in your hand and seeing how it functions. We know that sometimes, the only way to test and see if something really works is to actually create the design, put it together, and test it in the real world. For visualizations of designs, there is no better way to get high-quality, finished products for testing.

· Customized products – In a world where customization is becoming more and more the norm, it is not surprising that 3D printing has become more and more popular. It is now possible We are able to make highly customized products, either for testing, for your distribution and sale. It is very easy to modify a design for the needs of the individual or the company, without losing time or producing very much waste.

· Large-scale manufacturing – When it comes to large scale manufacturing, there is nothing better than 3D printing. We can create a large number of products can be made very quickly and have a higher portion of them be without flaw and have the high finishing and detail that is otherwise difficultimpossible in large runs of manufactured products.

Smaller lots on demand – 3D printing allows us to offer for smaller lots of new products to be made. This is useful for companies that are testing something in the market or simply do not want to have to store extra products. The ability to create both small and large runs, both at lower cost and with less waste than ever before, makes it running small and large businesses alike more affordable.

Additive manufacturing can be used to create a huge variety of products. While plastic was the first and is the most popular type of 3D printing, we use metal in powder form is becoming more common to create high-quality finished products for both large and small runs, for testing and for implementation.
