More and more companies have discovered the multiple opportunities of 3D printing and now utilise them as part of a profitable business. What is 3D printing all about and what kind of opportunities does it create for enterprises?
3D printing is a cost-effective and easy way to manufacture parts. However, you should figure out which manufacturing method is the most reasonable and economical considering the big picture.Read more
3D printing provides countless ways for enterprises to enhance the effectiveness of their business activities and make their processes faster and smoother.Read more
With 3D printing, a virtual model can be printed as a physical object. 3D printing provides virtually unlimited opportunities for manufacturing parts and workpieces for industrial and business needs.Read more
Making prototypes is only one of the areas that 3D printing is suited for. 3D printing allows for a cost-effective creation of many other things, such as spare parts, small series, and examples for marketing and training purposes.
3D printing is in many cases a more affordable solution than mould casting. The manufacturing method should be selected based on which method is more profitable: printing or moulding. This is affected by the number of required pieces and their size, among other things.
3D printing enables cost-effective production for a range of batch sizes. The smaller the workpieces are, the more economical it often is to manufacture them with 3D printing. This means that storage costs are also avoided.
Current 3D printouts are not fragile – in fact they are very durable. The workpieces are mechanically very strong. With certification, the strength values have also been tested and documented.
