Welcome to our Employee Spotlight series —a glimpse into the individuals driving 3D Spark forward. Today, we have Dr. Cagri Üzüm , Head of Business Development and Customer Success at 3D Spark GmbH.
Welcome to our Employee Spotlight series — a glimpse into the individuals driving 3D Spark forward. Today, we begin with Ruben Meuth, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of 3D Spark GmbH.
In this overview, we'll delve briefly into the seven primary AM technologies recognized by ISO and ASTM standards, exploring their sub-technologies, advantages, drawbacks, complementary processes and common applications. Some new AM technologies that do not necessarily fit into these seven categories will also be considered.
The use of 3D Spark has enabled DB to improve the accuracy and efficiency of their AM costing processes. Benefits include instant cost estimation, improved workflow efficiency and reduced time and resources spent on manual tasks. In addition, DB can better track the cost of AM parts over time, which has enabled them to identify cost trends, discover further opportunities and optimize AM processes.
Comparing multiple materials, machines, and technologies manually in terms of feasibility and costs takes too much time and valuable resources. The overhead can even diminish the intended cost savings. Making decisions in sales, manufacturing and procurement of parts should not be that difficult and expensive. This is why we have developed 3D Spark: to make the tedious effortless. A few clicks and you are ready to make informed, cost-effective decisions.
Did you know that industrial processes and energy consumption are responsible for one-fifth of global CO2 emissions? This is a significant amount! As a result, manufacturing companies are under pressure to implement sustainability policies to control their carbon footprint, reduce costs, and improve their reputation to attract customers and employees.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing has revolutionized the manufacturing industry with its unique capabilities. In this article, we will discuss the strengths of AM and compare them to conventional manufacturing processes. We will examine the advantages of AM for cost reduction and revenue generation, including toolless manufacture, part consolidation, complex geometries, increased product performance, personalization, and after-sales opportunities. Additionally, we will explore other operational advantages, high-level enterprise benefits, and the economics of 3D printing.
The AM approach has its fair share of process, productivity, and economic limitations that must be considered when evaluating its suitability for a particular application. So let’s dive deeper into the drawbacks associated with 3d printing.
