The hard plastic materials called PLA and ABS, which are the most common use materials, are suitable raw materials especially for the use of 3D printers. With these materials, which are common in daily use, 3D visual objects can be transferred to the physical environment.
The first usage and testing areas of 3D printers were non-serial production of small-scale products and accessories. Based on this basis, 3D printer technology, which has been developed day by day, can be used in mass production areas and heavy industry areas today. Accordingly, the materials used by 3D printers have started to change gradually.
Farm, one of the upcoming products of Meta Industry, has a technology developed for mass production and suitable for use in industry. In addition, another product that can use metal and resin materials takes the production of plastic products one step further.
CONTRIBUTION TO PRODUCTION PROCESSES
Production processes show different difficulties according to their sector. However, time in each sector, the difficulty of using the production devices, the maintenance and spare parts needs of the production devices are the most headache parts. 3D printer technology offers efficient and cost-cutting advantages in all these areas. Moreover, it helps to save on cost items such as purchasing and storing spare parts, purchasing and storing production raw materials.
A production department that can use a 3D printer can produce spare parts of all its devices and eliminates the spare parts order process. In this way, time can be saved, production can be accelerated, sales and income increase while costs decrease.
Another benefit of 3D printers is the need for qualified employees. In order to make a production, hundreds of skilled employees may be required by a team that can supply the raw material at an affordable price and with high quality, a warehouse area that can store the raw material without deformation and deformation, and warehouse officials, and also the industry in the process of converting the raw material. All these costs, difficulties and processes can be eliminated in 3D printer technology, which can convert a digital data into a physical object.
3D printer technology is also developing in direct proportion to the technology. In this direction, new advances are being made in order to further improve the production processes and to accelerate the heavy industry in production and to produce higher quality products.
