The revolution of additive manufacturing: how has the 3D printing world changed over the last year?
2019 represented an important year for the Additive Manufacturing world. A constant improvement of the 3D printing’s potentiality – in terms of speed, precision and sizes – has allowed to increasingly integrate the 3D printing technology within the manufacturing processes of many companies all over the world.
Therefore, the industrial world is witnessing a real revolution, driven by the continuous devolpment of additive manufacturing. For companies like ROBOZE it is necessary to invest in research and development, in order to adapt theirselves to the rapid changes of the global market. More and more frequently, especially in USA and Asia, the manufacturing industries use 3D printing as well as traditional manufacturing methods with CNC machines.
According to the research called “3D Printing Market by Offering, Process, Application, Vertical, Technology and Geography - Global Forecast to 2024”, published by MarketsandMarkets, the global 3D printing market will increase by over 70%, from $9.9 billion in 2018 to $34.8 billion in 2024.
Those industries, aiming at revolutionizing their production chain through the 3D printing technology, are for example Oil&Gas, Aerospace and Automotive.
The effects of additive manufacturing on the aerospace and defense sectors
In particular, additive manufacturing is changing the future of the aerospace and Defense industry: here the biggest challenge is reducing the weights of the aircrafts with lighter parts, keeping high the performance of the components produced. ROBOZE 3D printing technology – thanks for example to CARBON PEEK, carbon fiber filled material that guarantees the most extreme performances thanks to its mechanical properties and an excellent thermal and chemical resistance – allows companies to replace light alloys like alluminium, addressing the need to reduce weights, in order to decrease the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Using ROBOZE high temperature super polymers and composite materials, instead of metals, is extremely advantageous in these sectors thanks to the possibility to reduce the weights of the parts, obtain more chemical resistance to corrosion, low friction coefficient, electrical insulation, along with the advantage of a better workability of plastics, compared to metal alloys.
