The potential of 3D printing (3DP) technology: From development to deployment.

The 3DP data that will accelerate your additive manufacturing capabilities and help your organization to get ready for the changing manufacturing industries

3D Printing technology and materials have high growth potential in today’s manufacturing sector. Additive manufacturing technology has been evolving rapidly from past several years and contributing to the changing perspective towards conventional manufacturing industry. This technology adoption has proved to be an intelligent strategic move for businesses across several industries. Manufacturing companies have identified the potential of 3D printing and its materials and its benefits along the entire value chain. Hence, the industry has seen a soar in 3DP spending from past few years.

3D printing technology is not just in prototyping stage anymore. Companies from industries such as aerospace, healthcare and automotive are actually applying this technology and has shifted from development to deployment. Besides, other industries including textile, retail, education, energy & power, chemical, food processing, electronics, logistics and transportation, maritime, mechanics and metal, robotics and others services finds varied applications of 3D printing and have initiated the extensive use of this technology. This high speed adoption of additive manufacturing by companies is backed by various technology benefits such as easy availability of materials, highly precise/accurate finished goods, accelerated product development, production and maintenance flexibility, customized product delivery, etc.

However, the lack of technology knowledge has restricted the capability of businesses to make a strategic use of 3DP technology to strengthen their organizational structure and in-house process. Also, the broad range of 3DP solutions have confused the manufacturers to decide the right solution for their business. Our unprecedented analysis on 3DP technology and its materials help companies across all industries with qualitative and quantitative data to integrate this technology in to strategic steps.
