In general, 3D printing includes metal printing, plastic printing, ceramic glass printing and many other types. Among them, metal printing is mainly based on direct metal laser sintering (DMSL) technology, which is formed by melting metal particles with a laser. Using metal materials such as aluminum, titanium, steel, and nickel, manufacturers can manufacture a variety of products such as car seats and bearings.
In the past two years, with the continuous advancement of technology, the types of products that can be manufactured by means of metal 3D printing have become increasingly diverse, and domestic and foreign manufacturers have accelerated the layout speed in metal 3D printing. In November of this year, German machine tool manufacturer TRUMPF announced that its TruPrint 5000 (3D printer) can print high carbon steel or titanium alloy, and its new green laser pulse product can print pure copper and other precious metals.
In addition, 3D printing service providers such as 3D Systems, Optomec, ArcamAB, and Sandvik AB have invested a lot of energy in metal 3D printing technology development and product manufacturing. At present, under the joint promotion of major manufacturers at home and abroad, the metal 3D printing frontier technology is accelerating into practical application results, and the application scenarios of the entire metal 3D printing are also continuously expanded. So, what are the advantages of metal 3D printing compared to traditional manufacturing processes?
