Terry Wohlers: The Future of 3D Printing

Additive manufacturing and 3D printing—terms that are used interchangeably—are moving quickly in many directions. The level of interest and activity is at an all-time high as researchers, investors, and the management at some of the largest corporations try to predict where it is headed. Many believe it is the next Big Thing. National governments are developing “ecosystems” that include research and development, “maker spaces” for hands-on learning, discovery, and invention, and the commercialization of new products and services. The overall goal is to advance methods of product development, create high-paying jobs, and boost economies.

Opportunities in powder based 3D printing

Triggered by the availability of highly affordable personal 3D Printers, the 3D printing industry is enjoying wide public admiration in a similar way to the attention internet based applications attracted in the late nineties. However, the great promise of 3D printing technologies is less justified in home-based applications than in the area of industrial production. The powder binding segment within 3D printing offers outstanding advantages: no other additive manufacturing process offers comparable productivity combined with large build envelopes. In addition, a recently developed and unique machine concept allows continuous operation and inline production capabilities. The presentation provides an overview of current system concepts as well as possible applications, and gives an insight into future developments in this space.

Professional service providers’ approach to processes and customer value:

Professional 3D printing of mass production

Machines for layer manufacturing have existed for 25 years. Until today, these processes were mainly used for so-called prototyping (manufacturing of prototypes). Whereas the main idea of prototyping is to quickly receive a part for a design or functional test, requirements for serial components are at a total different level. Especially tolerances and surfaces are important. As with all manufacturing processes, additive manufacturing also has its limits. With examples from different sectors and applications, discover how top-quality products can already be efficiently produced.

New technologies and materials:

New additive process for efficient low volume production with standard granulates

In order to produce single parts and small series efficiently, ARBURG developed the freeformer and a new process for industrial additive manufacturing of plastic parts. With the patent-registered plastic free-forming of ARBURG, standard pellets are fused, as in injection moulding. The liquid melt produces small drops, which then build up in layers to fully functional parts – this happens directly from the 3D-CAD-data, and completely without an in-mould assembly.

Professional service providers’ approach to processes and customer value:

Surface refinement of RP-parts

RP-Parts are built up in layers whereby the parts obtain a stepped surface. This is formed weak or strong depending on parts complexity. These surfaces can be optimised by different possibilities, in order to achieve an optical surface similar to serial parts afterwards. Therefore you can use subsequent technologies as for example varnishing, evaporating, coating etc.

Development of 3D printing – opportunities and issues for intellectual property

The topic of 3D printing and its new applications, especially for private use, is highly discussed in the press. However, discussions about protection of intellectual property of newly developed or copied objects are missing. For companies, but also self-employed designers and artists, the protection of intellectual property is important in order to protect hand-made products. Traditional ways to protect these include the design law, copyright, patent law and trademark law. In this session, you will discover if these are suitable for 3D printing.

Technological developments for industrial and private users:

Colored plastic laser sintering parts, a must in the mega-trend of 3D printing

Generative plastic laser sintering is the technology which is closest to small series production. A great number of solutions in finishing exist, but a real complement is the coloring of parts produced by laser sintering, the e-coloring. Examples will show that colored parts produced with laser sintering become indispensable in the mega trend of 3D printing and became integral part of e-manufacturing. This session is made for developers, designers, department heads, CEOs of all sectors from producers of small part series to artists who want to use generative manufacturing in their production.

Technological developments for industrial and private users:

3D printing on an industrial scale and for private use: an overview from a “stereolithographical” perspective

A small journey through the evolution of stereolithography will present the newest trends of using photopolymers. A comparison to another major technology in Additive Manufacturing brings up the question if stereolithography is suitable for mechanical AM? If so, what guidelines do we have to consider? We also ask if stereolithography can play an important role in home and hobby appliances – what are the critical factors for a high adoption-rate? And of course – in the end we draw a conclusion!
