Responsibility, environmental friendliness and sustainable development are topics that every company should be interested in today. There are many benefits to industrial-grade metal and plastic 3D printing, including cost-effectiveness, time savings and greater design freedom. One less talked about benefit is the environmental friendliness of 3D printing, so we decided to write more on the subject. In this blog post, we share three reasons why 3D printing is a greener choice than other manufacturing methods.

What is 3D printing with SLS? What is DMLS? Today, 3D printing is used in almost all sectors, including automotive, aerospace, marine, textiles, jewellery, construction, pharmaceuticals, metal, and engineering. How does industrial 3D printing differ from 3D printing at home? Is it worth printing the parts yourself or choosing a partner? In this blog post, we take a moment to go back to the basics!

Welcome to the new, greener spare parts industry — digital spare parts are here to stay. We are happy to say goodbye to spare parts warehouses, which tie up millions in capital, and replace them with needs-based 3D printing. What is this all about?

There is far too little talk about post-treatment of 3D prints. However, it not only makes the part or product better, it also helps it stand out from the competition in the market. As 3D printing is increasingly used in many companies, a basic level is no longer sufficient. As more and more printed parts are used as end products, their appearance, durability and features are becoming increasingly important. In this blog, we give you three reasons why you should use post-treatment.

Are 3D printed parts of high quality and durability? That is a question that many people are still asking. At this point, it is important to remember that home 3D printing and industrial 3D printing are two different things. We manufacture a variety of parts for different companies and for very demanding needs – from prototypes to finished products and spare parts. It is therefore clear that the parts must be of very high quality. What does quality assurance at 3D Formtech mean?

Is 3D printing for intricate components only? It’s true that 3D printing allows you to create even the most intricate geometric shapes, but you will also find 3D printed components in – places like Airbus’ turbo-jet engines – so, no, 3D printing is not just for intricate parts. It offers unlimited opportunities to any manufacturing company that uses plastic or metal in some way. So, what’s holding us up or preventing us from using it more?
