3D Printing

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing, a manufacturing process that creates three-dimensional objects by layering materials on top of each other based on a digital model or blueprint. This technology has revolutionized the way that products are designed and produced, allowing for faster and more efficient prototyping and production. It has also made it possible to create complex geometries that were once impossible to produce with traditional manufacturing methods.

3D printing has a wide range of applications across many industries, including aerospace, automotive, healthcare, and architecture. It has the potential to transform manufacturing by allowing for greater customization and faster production times. As the technology continues to evolve and become more accessible, it has the potential to democratize manufacturing and allow individuals and small businesses to create their own products without the need for large factories or expensive equipment. 3D printing is truly a game-changing technology with endless possibilities for innovation and growth.

3D Printing Stereolithography

SLA technology utilizes photochemical processes to create 3D objects and has gained popularity as an AM process. The process involves curing photopolymer in layers using a moving laser beam, making it suitable for developing prototypes, medical models, and computer hardware. This process offers an effective solution for creating solid objects with various applications.

3D Printing
Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) Technology, also known as Multijet Modeling (MJM), has been gaining popularity in recent years because it can create 3-dimensional objects with high-quality surface finishes and sharp edges. The technology applies tiny liquid droplets to a polymer powder layer, which increases or suppresses the powder’s heat absorption.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology, also known as Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) or Fused Layer Manufacturing (FLM), is a 3D printing process that involves using a continuous filament of a thermoplastic material. The extrusion head conveys the striped plastic raw material and heats it until it melts. Once melted, the computer-controlled extrusion head pours the material in drops on the build platform to form the first layer of the component.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is a cutting-edge 3D printing technology that directly creates a metal part with a 3D computer model. Unlike traditional metal casting methods, which require the use of molds and can be time-consuming, DMLS is a fast and efficient way to produce metal parts of various sizes and shapes. The process is an advancement of powder metallurgy, which uses heat and pressure to form powdered metal parts.
