Industrial 3D Printers

Factories of the future

Industrial 3D printing is fast gaining popularity and industry watchers opine that it will soon become indispensable. Additive manufacturing may not replace traditional manufacturing, but will surely complement it in several sectors. The 3D printing market has grown by about 30% year-over-year, and it is set to triple in revenue over the next four years.

Industrial grade 3D printers differ from consumer grade printers because of its ability to create industrial-quality, fully functional, end-use parts. These commercial printers have large capacities and can deliver objects with greater resolution, strength and durability. They can print with a multitude of extremely durable materials such as metal, carbon fibre, high-temperature filaments

Commercial 3D printers run on different technologies such as fused deposition modelling (FDM), stereolithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS), polyjet printing to name a few. While choosing a commercial printer, your decision should be based on what you will be printing, and what material is best suited for that application.

Applications of Industrial 3D printers

The versatility and functionality offered by additive manufacturing opens the door to countless applications. Industries such as automotive, healthcare, aerospace, food, and jewellery have been early adopters.

Automotive

3D Printed car parts are already being used in manufacturing and car frames and will follow soon. Companies like Bentley use 3D printing to manufacture small, complex parts for their cars.

=

Aerospace

Companies like GE, Airbus, Boeing, and BAE Systems are raising the bar on manufacturing technologies and processes by producing complex and high-strength parts using industrial grade print machines.

=

Healthcare

3D printing is already being extensively used for healthcare purposes. Hearing aids, jaw transplants, dental and orthodontic models, hip implants etc. are already being manufactured on 3D printers.

Jewellery

Jewellers are adopting 3D printers to create wax or resin moulds that are used to cast precious metal to create beautiful designs that would otherwise be impossible to create by traditional methods.

Commercial 3D Printing in the region

Singapore is one of the early adopters of 3D printing in South East Asia. Additive manufacturing is very relevant for countries like Singapore with expensive manpower and a sluggish manufacturing sector. By moving to 3D printing, manufacturers can improve quality through more design freedom, better stability and enhanced ergonomics.

Industrial grade 3D printing in Singapore is on the rise; the Government of Singapore has launched a plethora of initiatives to boost additive manufacturing, like the $200 million Innovation Cluster for Additive manufacturing and the NTU’s Singapore Centre for 3D Printing.

In Singapore, 3D Bots brings to the market the best of commercial 3D printers and services. With an extensive sales and service network in Singapore and South East Asia, 3D Bots is your ideal 3D printing partner in the country.
