The Weakness Of Machining

by:Bofeng     2020-08-21
Creating unique metal parts for use in multiple industries has been fascinating over the past century. Parts inside of engines for planes, boats, and cars have relied heavily on machining services since the creation of mechanical machines. The trend that's currently taking place in the manufacturing world suggests a takeover, and a harsh shift. 3D printing has been impacting the manufacturing world for the better lately through its fascinating technologies. 3D printing simply had an edge on traditional machining in several aspects, let me elaborate.
In many cases, it is more budget friendly to have machinists making parts for projects; it will be a while before 3D printing and other manufacturing methods automate this process. However, 3D printing is knocking the doors of manufacturing down! When a project calls for the manufacturing of a small metal piece that holds a variety of curves and organic shapes as well as a required level of precision, machinists are out of luck! In 3D printing, a design can be created on the computer for a 3D printer to use. This blueprint working in conjunction with a 3D printer will take care of all the details of manufacturing this part, and it will do it less time in many cases. Depending on the part, a few hours may be all that you need to have a metal part created through 3D printing. Think about that; in some cases, one day is all that a client would need to have a piece created! Machinists can sometimes take weeks to have a product developed, in which this product wouldn't offer the same detail. At the same time, this machined product wouldn't boast the same level of geometrical independence like 3D printing would. 3D printing simply has an edge on what can be done through metal manufacturing on a smaller scale.
Due to the geometrical limitations, it is very difficult to create curved and organic shapes through machining. 3D printing doesn't have the same problem; it can create organic and curved shapes! The amount of man hours required to machine a heavily detailed product can seriously add up and hurt your budget. In most cases, 3D printing almost eliminates this issue, and tends to be less expensive. Another huge advantage of 3D printing would be that it produces products within a day or two, rather than a week or two. The manufacturing process of 3D printing takes hours to have a piece made. From when the product begins to print to when it is complete, a product can be created in less than 8 hours in most cases. This throws a huge jab towards the machining industry! Machining isn't bad; in fact it is exceptional, and has been around for centuries. Machining simply doesn't hold up to the same level of detail, organic shapes, geometrical independence, nor does it hold up to the traditional time of production. Although 3D printing is just now beginning to be implemented on a wide scale, it is already starting to take over other forms of manufacturing.
