How to choose an industrial 3d printer

Nowadays, 3D printing technology has gradually entered the public eye, and 3D printing technology has entered people’s production and life, which can better benefit more people. So, what is the principle of 3D printing? What is the application area? The following editor will give a brief introduction.

Principles and application areas of 3D printing

3D printer principle

3D printing is a cumulative manufacturing technology. It can not only form technology but also form a digital model, using bondable materials such as wax, powdered metal or plastic to bond it layer by layer. At present, 3D printers are mostly used to manufacture products by layer-by-layer printing. The most direct principle is to put the data and raw materials into the 3D printer, and the machine prints the model layer by layer according to the program.

Principles and application areas of 3D printing

The biggest difference between 3D printers and ordinary printers is “ink”. The “ink” of a 3D printer is 3D printing consumables, which are stacked to form various objects, from plastics to metals, ceramics and rubber, which are all raw materials that can be used by 3D printers.

3D printer application field

  1. Mold manufacturing

Traditional molds have a long production time and high cost, but the combination of 3D printing technology and traditional mold manufacturing technology can greatly shorten the development cycle of mold manufacturing and improve production efficiency. It is an effective way to solve the weak links of mold design and manufacturing.

Principles and application areas of 3D printing
  1. Medical field

In recent years, 3D printing technology has been widely used in the medical field. 3D printing technology based on medical image data is used to make human organ models, which has great application value in surgical operations.

Principles and application areas of 3D printing
  1. Space aviation

Not long ago, the important parts of the space engine were successfully printed using 3D printers. The products printed by 3D printers and traditional technologies must reduce costs by 30% and 40%. This is a new space travel.

Principles and application areas of 3D printing
  1. Auto parts

3D printing technology can build a conceptual model on a car in a few hours or days. The complex structural modeling to meet the assembly and disassembly of complex structural parts in the traditional manufacturing process has always been the bottleneck of production technology, but if 3D printing technology is used, This is not a problem at all. As long as there is a choice of materials, paying attention to 3D printing can solve this problem well.

Principles and application areas of 3D printing
  1. Education

3D printing technology should be the most popular technology in domestic education. Many colleges and universities are exploring 3D printing technology and teaching, offering 3D printing special courses to promote the application of 3D printing technology in education. With the development of 3D printing in the field of education, society’s awareness of 3D printing is getting higher and higher. It is believed that 3D printing technology will be widely used in the field of education in the future.

Principles and application areas of 3D printing

In fact, the application of 3D printing technology far exceeds the above five areas. If you have other views and opinions, welcome to communicate with us.
