Will CNC Machining Centers be Replaced by 3D Printing?

Pulished on Mar. 06, 2020

As a CNC Machining Parts Manufacturers, share with you. The CNC machining center is a very versatile CNC machining machine. The CNC machining center can process planes, grooves, gear parts, spiral surfaces and various complex curved surfaces. Not only that, but the CNC machining center can also process rotary bodies. Surface, internal thread, surface cutting, etc .; 3D printing using metal powder as a raw material can complete mold forming in one step. At present, the field of 3D printing has covered military and civilian use, so will the rapid development of 3D printing technology be eliminated What about dropping OEM CNC Machining Center Parts?

Let's make this idea. Mill a hollow iron ball with a CNC machining center, first get a sufficiently large cube material, then use a ball cutter to mill one layer at a time, mill two semicircles, and then weld them using welding. Welding together, however, the sphere is not a mold with a particularly complicated processing technology. Welding is also used in the future. If 3D promises, welding is not required. The plasticity of the sphere can be completed in one step. From this perspective, Isn't 3D printing very simple and fast? Does it have the ability to replace traditional machining centers? The answer is no, for the following reasons:

Although 3D printing is simple and fast, 3D printing also has its shortcomings, that is, it is difficult for processing manufacturers to achieve lighting processing, the production capacity is very significantly lower than traditional processing methods, and it will be affected by factors such as cost and technological popularity. The surface cannot penetrate into the production line; the surface of the parts and components processed by 3D printing technology that we generally see are very rough. From the perspective of factory investment equipment, 3D printing and CNC machining centers at the same price, regardless of product processing The finish is also the accuracy of the product. 3D printing cannot match the machining center. Not only that, the strength of the 3D printed product cannot be compared with the product processed by the CNC machining center. The parts required by the user are not only the shape Need to meet the standards, but the precision and strength of the parts will also affect the later use performance, so this is very important.

The solution for the future should be that both the CNC machining center and 3D printing is upgraded and improved in the technology areas they lack. In the future market environment, the two processing processes go hand in hand.

Our company also has OEM CNC Machining Parts on sale, welcome to consult.
