The development trend of metal manufacturing industry in the future

Metal additive manufacturing is dramatically changing the way products are made.Traditional manufacturing is to complete metal materials with CNC machine tools to reduce the processing, the final physical parts, the process of removing a large number of materials;Metal additive manufacturing is a production method that directly prints products using three-dimensional digital models. Metal powder materials are piled up layer by layer according to sintering, melting, spraying and other methods to produce physical goods.

 

Additive manufacturing is greatly different from traditional manufacturing. The simplified production method breaks through the limitations of traditional structural design and makes it possible to produce complex structures and optimize product performance.This improves flexibility, shortens production cycles, and brings truly innovative thinking to products.With additive manufacturing, products that used to exist only in the imagination and were considered impossible to produce can finally be realized.

With the progress of technology, today's metal additive technology has been capable of mass production. Its products can be compared with traditional manufacturing in terms of performance, production efficiency or production scale, and the production cost has been significantly reduced.

 


01

Rapid response to capacity surges

Whether it's making consumer electronics parts or basketball shoes, the surge in demand often leaves manufacturers with a love-hate relationship.This is because the traditional processing supply chain is complex and lengthy, and it is difficult to achieve the requirement that each link should meet the surging demand to expand the capacity in an instant, so it also increases the difficulty of rapid response.

In contrast, additive manufacturing technology has low requirements for molds and fixtures, thus reducing manufacturers' dependence on the supply chain.Additive manufacturing reduces the time it takes to move from design to manufacturing, speeds product introduction to market, and gets new products to consumers faster.

 


02

Achieve personalized production

What comes along with individual characteristic tide, it is consumer to the individuation demand of the product.Save the use of mold, additive manufacturing allows enterprises to lower the cost, quickly manufacturing personalized products.Its advantages of small batch production, and modern consumers with the changing needs of a more perfect fit.

 


03

Quick replacement between different manufacturing jobs

CNC machines often take tens of minutes to several hours to replace parts.Additive manufacturing, on the other hand, allows multiple products to be molded at one time, so that seamless replacement can be achieved between different manufacturing operations, and the time for each replacement can be reduced to a few minutes at most.

Flexible production also means that the time and money required to produce spare parts are greatly reduced.In traditional CNC machining or injection molding production, it is often necessary to produce more than 10% of the products in order to cope with the loss and scrap in the process.Additive technology can be used to produce additional parts on demand at the moment when the loss occurs, avoiding the waste caused by overproduction.

 

With the innovation of additive manufacturing technology, the threshold for enterprises to adopt and apply additive will be greatly lowered, thus meeting the purpose of enterprises to shorten product production cycle to meet customer demand.With the help of additive manufacturing, both the traditional manufacturing methods and the products produced will be qualitatively improved and the design thinking will be greatly improved, and this day is just around the corner.
