For many years product designers and engineers have had to face annoying compromises when designing tubular products. Traditional rotary draw tube benders required significant investment in bend tooling, as well as restrictions in part geometry due to the right hand/left rotation of standard benders. These considerations often lead to product designs that had commonized bend radii and simple designs. In other words … BORING!
3D printing has revolutionized manufacturing and development. Also referred to as additive manufacturing, 3D printing involves combining multiple layers of a material until you successfully create a 3D printed model. It has become a popular choice among manufacturers due to its innovative benefits that complement traditional manufacturing. While manufacturing companies often use other tools and machines to convert raw materials into finished products, 3D printers offer several unique benefits such as lower costs and waste reduction. Here are the top five advantages to 3D printing in the manufacturing industry.
