What is the Best 3D Printer for Large Scale Printing?

Posted by Conner Lohens on 12/11/19 10:30 AM

Additive Manufacturing, AM, is one of the fastest growing industries in the US today. AM, commonly known as 3D printing, has proven to have matured beyond prototyping and is capable of full-scale production. For example, in 2018 the HP MJF printers alone produced more than 10 million parts worldwide – and that is expected to double in 2019! 3D printing technologies are advancing rapidly and are becoming more widely adopted by manufacturers.

Are 3D Printers Suitable for Large Scale Production?

Posted by Conner Lohens on 10/30/19 10:30 AM

There is a long-standing myth that 3D printing is only suitable for prototyping and that additive manufacturing technologies, such as 3D printing, are not suitable for production. However, due to recent advances in build rates and quality control, 3D printing for production is rapidly being adopted by many manufacturing processes worldwide. More and more manufacturers are viewing 3D printing as a viable option for producing quality parts that are just as capable as machined or molded parts. Additionally, industrial 3D printing has not only proven itself capable for production, it is competing with traditional manufacturing methods as a cost-effective solution for low, medium and even large-scale production volumes!

Is 3D Printing the Future of Manufacturing?

Posted by Conner Lohens on 10/23/19 10:30 AM

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing is a process that builds a three-dimensional object based on a Computer Aided Design (CAD) sketch. A 3D printer uses the CAD data to add successive layers of liquid, powder, or other material to manufacture a 3D object. A wide range of materials can be used for 3D printing including metals, plastics, and composites.
