With the rapid advancement of science and technology, 3D scan technology has also developed. Through the light source, light with a special structure is projected onto the surface of the object, and digital information is obtained through computer calculation. The versatile 3D scan technology is gaining popularity.
The technology for 3D printing of medical materials has soared. The new technique "Layered Manufacturing Technology", also known as 3D printing, which uses a layer-by-layer additive method to build products, has become popular in recent years. With the rapid advancement of 3D printing technology, the market for 3D printed medical materials has grown significantly.
The global population is rapidly seeing an irreversible trend to longer lifespans, and this trend will inevitably lead to an increase in chronically ill patients. To meet the needs of an aging society, the pursuit of better medical services and quality medical products has become a common global issue.
The global manufacturing industry is moving towards intelligent manufacturing, and Industry 4.0 is driving the manufacturing industry towards trends of higher efficiency, lower costs, and intelligent and flexible production. The nine technologies of Industry 4.0 include Big Data, Laminated Manufacturing, Cloud Technology, Automation, System Integration, Internet of Things, Cyber Security, Augmented Reality, and Simulation.
Selective laser sintering is an additive manufacturing technology that sinters small particles of polymer powder into a 3D three-dimensional structure through high-power laser light; thus, this is also called selective laser sintering 3D printing, or SLS 3D printing.
The printing industry is very complex. It not only has many internal sub-industries but also involves many upstream and downstream related industries. It can be said that it is a huge industry system. The printing industry has a long history of development. Starting from the invention of printing in ancient China, printing technology has continued to innovate, forming a large industry, which we are almost engaged every day. Digital printing, 3D printing, other new emerging printing technologies will overturn and play new roles in printing industry markets.
3D printing technology has been widely used in recent years, and it has also allowed the manufacturing industry to evolve into a "smart" manufacturing industry, which can achieve the large output value with the less manpower.
Additive manufacturing has a great future ahead of it. The current development of additive manufacturing has already surpassed the predictions made in studies carried out in previous years. Renowned research institutions such as ETH Zurich are convinced that 3D metal printing will become increasingly important in mechanical engineering and toolmaking.
Additive manufacturing is playing an increasingly important role in the manufacturing industry and is mainly used in toolmaking and prototype construction.
The revenue of the laser industry grows higher and higher in recent years. As manufacturing industry moves toward smart, intelligence and systematization, the laser manufacturing process has become an indispensable role in the manufacturing industry.
In healthcare, 3D bioprinting is used to create living human cells or tissue for use in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering.
As adoption of 3D printing spreads throughout the larger sector of industrial manufacturing, the value of the technology as more than just a rapid prototyping tool is becoming increasingly evident. In this article, we gave an overview of how 3D printing is used to fabricate molds and dies for injection molding and die casting.
The application of 3D printing technology in various industries can lead to new technological breakthroughs and improve production efficiency.
3D printing is a type of additive manufacturing that subverts the thinking of scrap manufacturing in traditional industries.
The rapid development of 3D printing technology has gradually been applied to industrial manufacturing and has become a new trend in processing.
