Recently, 3d printing technology faces many challenges, and companies such as 3dsystems have successively launched related home machine markets. Even so, the performance of the entire industry is still satisfactory. Last year, the global sales of desktop 3D printers reached 278,000 units, an increase of more than 100,000 units compared to 2018.
In addition, the growth of the industrial market has also stabilized, attracting many companies to join. In 2018, a total of 62 3d printing manufacturers launched new 3d printers of more than US$5,000, and 13 newly joined 3d printing companies performed very well in the field of metal 3d printing. Outstanding, can be regarded as more outstanding in many markets.
Faced with a rapidly changing market, manufacturers must find ways to further improve production efficiency. 3dsystems then combines automation technology with 3D printing technology to create a high-speed production system. The new system of 3dsystems is collectively called Figure4, which mainly modulates the production steps of Guanggu 3d printers and is operated by industrial robotic arms. It is suitable for mass production of special customized parts. The company’s new system can shorten the production time of parts to a few minutes. , 10 times faster than general production technology.
Colleagues save mold making process. In addition, 3dsystems yesterday appointed former HP executive VYomesh JOSHI as its new chief executive officer. Together with the appearance of Figure 4, it means that the company will focus on developing the industrial market in the future.
In the home market, APPLE, which is interested in joining the 3D printing market, has been reported many times, and it has made new moves recently. An unexpected product 3dprinter ultimaker2+ has been added to the apple store online stores in European countries.
Although Apple does not have any special publicity, some fans have recently discovered that the printer item in the online store has indeed added a category that can be ordered for uitimaker 2+. At this stage, APPle has only launched one model, and it has not yet been sold off the Applestore.
So far, whether this means that APPLe is testing the market water temperature, it is not known!
