3D printing for production & end-use parts
3D printing has grown immensely over the years and is now a technology that is used for the manufacturing of high quality, easily customizable end-use parts with consistent output and optimized performance.
Using 3D printing for manufacturing end-use parts
The 3D printing of end-use parts is the fastest growing application area, with many well-know brands, such as BMW and Airbus, leading the way. It is particularly suitable for the production of parts with complex geometries, where traditional manufacturing methods require several expensive production phases or lower volumes, or where other technologies aren’t cost effective.
OEMs utilize 3D printing for bridge manufacturing. This allows short-run production and faster market launches, while production lines and tooling are developed for mass production.
New optimized product designs allow parts to perform more efficiently and products that traditionally require assembly of multiple parts can be combined.
