3D Printing Conference Rapid.Tech 3D 2024

Getting there faster - high-speed 3D printing for industrial applications at SEAMHex

3D Printing Conference powered by STRATASYS: We are looking forward to Dipl.-Ing. IWE Marcus Witt's (1A Technologies) presentation at the anniversary edition of Rapid.Tech 3D 2024.

Granulate-based plastic 3D printing is at the peak of its hype phase and in future there will be a differentiation between the printing of components and the actual production of certifiable parts.
Previous applications of aluminium and iron components can be replaced by fast and controlled production using carbon fibre-reinforced plastics. This applies, for example, to aluminium components such as flanged frames for the automotive industry, components that were previously manufactured from aluminium profiles but could not be adapted to the optimum installation spaces or even cast iron components that are only required in small quantities but then have to meet corresponding strength requirements.
- Recycling of materials and utilisation of residual materials from other manufacturing processes close cycles and reduce costs. Both ecologically sound fibre materials (wood and hemp) and reused plastics, which are reprocessed several times before property losses occur due to fibre damage, play a role here.
- Examples of applications for highly resilient components through controlled component manufacture are shown
Examples of applications include load-bearing components (rear shelving for police vehicles), goods vehicle frames, dynamically stressed components and laminating devices with surface quality requirements or even highly stressed components from the hydropower sector.
