3D printing combined with industrial robots could be a novel yet promising approach to manufacturing.   Two main drivers are pushing its development: the need to additively create large objects more accurately and repeatedly, and also the opportunity to achieve more automated and integrated production with 3D printing. As manufacturing technologies evolve, this combination could be one of the solutions to the growing move towards greater digitisation and smart manufacturing.   Combining robotics and 3D printing?   The combination of the industrial robots and 3D printing can be achieved in two ways. The ...

As Industry 4.0 continues to transform the manufacturing industry, many companies are realising the benefits of offering additive manufacturing services in addition to traditional manufacturing.  However, one of the challenges that manufacturers now face is adapting their processes to price parts for both traditional and additive manufacturing - and creating an automated pricing system for their manufacturing processes.  So how does this synergy impact the pricing process for manufacturing companies? Automation: The future of Manufacturing  If your company offers both vacuum casting and SLS services (for example), it can be challenging to ...
