Development of 3D printing technology in foreign countries

- Dec 14, 2018 -

After more than ten years of exploration and development, 3D printing technology has made considerable progress. At present, it has been able to achieve 600 dpi resolution in 0.01 mm single layer thickness. At present, the more advanced products in the world can achieve the vertical rate of 25 ram thickness per hour, and can achieve 24-bit color printing.

At present, in the global 3D printer industry, the products of American 3D_Systems and Stratasys occupy the vast majority of the market share. In addition, enterprises/R&D teams with strong technical strength and characteristics in this field

The team also includes Fab@Home and Shapleways in the United States, Reprap in the United Kingdom, etc. _

3D Systems is the world's largest rapid prototyping equipment development company. After the acquisition of Z Corporation, the earliest inventor and patent owner of 3D printing technology in November 2011, 3D Systems has established its leading position in the field of 3D printing. Stratasys signed a 0EM cooperation agreement with Hewlett-Packard, a traditional printing giant, to produce HP-branded 3D printers in 20109. Following the acquisition of Solidscape in May 201-1

Subsequently, Stratasys announced its merger with Israel's renowned 3-D printing system provider 0bjet in April 2012. At present, the international 3D printer manufacturing industry is in the process of rapid merger and integration, and the industry giants are accelerating their rise.

At present, in developed countries in Europe and America, 3D printing technology has initially formed a successful commercial model. For example, in the fields of consumer electronics, aviation and automobile manufacturing, 3D printing technology can produce small batches of customized components with low cost and high efficiency, and complete complex and fine modeling. In addition, the field in which 3D printing technology has been applied is the individualized consumer goods industry. For example, Quirky, a creative consumer goods company in New York, is able to launch 60 innovations a year by soliciting users'design plans online, making physical products with 3D printing technology and selling them in the electronic market.Products with annual revenue of $1 million
