Why 3D printing is so slow to integrate into manufacturing.

Time2018/1/11PostedT & N Industrial / Foshan Linghang Colour Printing Co.,Ltd

Although it is a manufacturing technology, 3D printing technology has not been able to integrate into the manufacturing industry since its introduction. Admittedly, industries such as airlines and cars do well in the introduction of 3D printing technology. But for the manufacturing sector as a whole, there are few companies introducing 3D printing technology, let alone large-scale applications in manufacturing. Why is this happening? Why has 3D printing been so slow to integrate into manufacturing? The general reasons can be divided into the following categories.


It doesn't work for itself: some manufacturers don't need 3D printing. They have existing manufacturing processes and relatively fixed business models that perfectly match their own development needs. These manufacturers do not need 3D printing technology if they do not need to make prototypes or develop new products frequently.


Think it doesn't work: some manufacturers mistakenly believe that 3D printing doesn't work. They will feel that the current process and business model are unbreakable and need not be improved, so they reject the introduction of 3D printing technology. But the reality is that these manufacturers often need to make small new products, and 3D printing can actually play a big role.


Unaware of the technological potential: taking the aviation industry as an example, it took many years for the airline industry to realize the huge potential of 3D printing technology, which could be used to produce extremely complex parts. Of course, enterprises need to realize the potential of technology and need to go through a long process. The introduction of relevant talents may accelerate this process.


Never heard: some manufacturers are small, and some manufacturers are too focused on the development of existing technologies, so they have no time to learn about new technologies, much less introduce them.


The wrong media guide: over the past few years, the mass media, filled with many reports of 3 d printing, but most of the reports are related to the school, family and 3 d printing, to some extent this has caused people's understanding of the deviation. Some manufacturers believe that 3D printing is only suitable for school families and cannot go into the manufacturing shop.


Cost: some manufacturers are well aware of the potential of 3D printing technology, but their own financial situation does not allow them to introduce the technology. The introduction of this technology, which includes personnel training, equipment procurement, supply chain changes, and even infrastructure, is definitely a big expense.


Ageing: employees will appear similar phenomenon in all industries, or near it is older retired staff, to refuse any change, on the one hand, because thought lag, on the other hand because of fear of unemployment. If there is no problem, don't make any changes. This sentence becomes their rule. As a result, such manufacturers often do not hesitate to reject new technologies such as 3D printing.


In order to solve the above problems, many 3D printing service companies are now pushing the 3D printing of education, so that many enterprises can realize the advantages of 3D printing technology. In the future, 3D printing technology will be integrated faster and faster with the understanding of 3D printing.



Can digital reading replace traditional reading? It's too early to sing.


What am I talking about when I talk about reading? Is it traditional reading, reading or reading?


Data show that reading -- the act itself is changing. Digital reading, with its great strength, is changing the nation's reading habits.


Recently, the school of journalism of Beijing normal university released the survey report on digital reading of Chinese Internet users (2016). The report shows that people's reading habits and reading behaviors are undergoing profound changes. Among them, 62.7 percent of respondents believed that digital reading will replace paper reading sooner or later. Among them, the number of respondents under 20 years old was 82.9 percent.
