While always keeping an eye on costs, manufacturers need to convince their customers by improving the customizability of new products. At the same time, they need to adapt quickly to market fluctuations to survive into the future. Additive manufacturing, also known as industrial 3D printing, is an extra business strategy that can help to tackle these challenges.
Combining additive manufacturing with traditional manufacturing can solve many of the market’s demands.
Even in the future, some parts will still require conventional technologies to manufacture millions of units. At the same time, modern manufacturers need to handle more than just large production series. There are multiple challenges:
Less material use, reduced energy consumption: lightweight components
Lightweight designs are becoming increasingly attractive across a variety of sectors, as reduced material usage lowers the costs per part and lighter parts decrease the weight and therefore often the energy consumption of their applications.
Experience innovation: complex and bionic structures
Extremely complex geometries, organic surface structures, cavities and undercuts: with 3D printing technology, products can be completely reimagined and a range of diverse structures can be integrated into the same part.
Reduce assembly costs, better use of space: functional integration
Industrial 3D printing allows you to manufacture highly complex structures that are both lightweight and stable at the same time. Intelligent functional integration can drastically reduce the number of parts, make better use of the available space and significantly reduce assembly costs.
Production on demand: individual products, spare parts and much more
No tools, no molds – industrial 3D printing offers customization opportunities for needs-based production by simply adapting the CAD data. Medium series production at volumes of up to 100,000/month are also easily achievable.
