3D printing, or additive manufacturing, the modern alternative to machining methods
Today, digitalisation is becoming ever more prevalent in all sectors due to the many advantages it can offer. According to Gartner, digitalisation is "the use of digital technologies to change a business model, providing new revenue and value-producing opportunities". The industrial sector is also undergoing a transformation towards digitalisation, known as Industry 4.0. It consists of automating processes to achieve a more connected and efficient company that is able to respond to the needs of the market in a faster and more sustainable way.

For manufacturing industrial parts, one of the most efficient processes that is currently booming, thanks to its excellent results, is 3D printing. This is an emerging technology in this sector, which makes it possible to convert a digital model into a solid object without the need for expensive tools, moulds or equipment.

More and more 3D projects are being developed in the industrial field due to the numerous advantages it offers, one of them being the ability to obtain parts which are very geometrically complex. In addition to this, it is possible to go from a STEP file (3D) or a part model (reverse engineering) to a complete series production within hours.  

In the prototyping phase, 3D printing is a great advantage, as it allows errors to be quickly detected and modifications to be made for the final production of functional parts. This results in a higher quality final product.
In this way, 3D printing not only reduces production times, but also manufacturing costs, thus improving on traditional machining processes.

At Induplast we have been using this technology since 2017, combined with other machining processes in order to adapt to and fulfil the needs of the customer. It should be noted that, in order to achieve optimum production results, the use of the requested part must be specified in detail, so that our expert consultants can advise you on the best manufacturing process according to your requirements.
