The use of 3D printing in low-volume production is already common solution.

Elements with high conductive properties, connectors for electric cars, personalized housings and parts for electronic devices – all of these can be printed today in 3D. Not only giants such as Panasonic, Whirlpool or Electrolux use this technology on a daily basis, but also Polish companies that found 3D printing to be a way to develop and succeed in competition with others.

Instead of buying expensive tools and moulds for production ― necessary for a traditional manufacturing process ― companies can invest in a good 3D printer for industrial use.

Electronics industry and 3D printing

Companies producing electronic devices very often face problems related to a terminated production of components or subassemblies supplied by external subcontractors. A few years ago, a new supplier would probably be sought or a decision made to stop production ― losing valuable time and money. Today, enterprises have a different option ― an investment in a 3D printer, thanks to which they can build the necessary parts or tools as well as make prototypes.

3D printing works well where there is a need to manufacture small numbers of models, also personalised. It ensures continuity of operations, making companies independent from external suppliers and the prices proposed by them, which are usually higher when production of individual units is involved.

We manufacture several hundred pieces of equipment a year and it has always been our biggest problem to select subcontractors for structural and mechanical parts, made of plastic or metal, as subcontractors are reluctant to accept such orders. We decided to buy a 3D printer and since then we have been self-sufficient. We use the 3D printing technology to make prototypes of the housings of our new cardiac monitors.

Industrial 3D printers

3D printing in the electronics industry means that designers and engineers who are open to innovation can realize their boldest ideas, but also optimise the business ― eliminate production downtime, improve prototyping and meet customer requirements by tailoring products to their needs. However, please note that, like any technology, this one also has its limitations and cannot be used in every case. Therefore, the decision to include it in the company’s production processes should be preceded by a risk analysis and tests to validate the case for its application.

Another company, Emar by investing in an industrial printer, improved its production processes ― it prints process instruments and prototypes of new devices.

3D printing technology allows us to manufacture objects with complex shapes. Using a double head printer we can produce objects that are geometrically complex with the use of supporting material, maintaining high precision and quality of workmanship

How to reduce production costs?

Now designers and engineers can quickly move on from an innovative idea, through prototype testing, to test systems ― by printing the necessary components in 3D on their own, and even ― as it turns out ― their own multi-layer PCBs. All of this gives them greater control over their design cycles, increases safety and reduces manufacturing costs. Industrial 3D printers such as the 3DGence INDUSTRY F340 allow businesses to be highly independent in their production. items.
