AM Pioneers GmbH is coming to Motek/Bondexpo 2021 in Stuttgart with 3D printers and exciting use cases.
Leonardo Scardigno, Senior Expert Bionic Design / Additive Manufacturing highlights some customer benefits of 3D printing.

3D printing has already conquered quite a few production areas. Please tell us some aspects that illustrate the advantages of 3D printing:

  • Extensive design freedom and customization
  • Use of a wide variety of materials and material combinations
  • Weight savings through complex component design and use of materials such as continuous carbon fiber
  • Cost savings through avoidance of tooling costs
  • Short time to market due to faster prototype production
  • Reduction of assembly effort by combining components
  • Reduction of storage costs through on-demand production

Which industries are benefiting particularly from 3D printing technology?

The versatility and flexibility of 3D printing allows it to be used in almost any industry. The automotive, orthopedics and aerospace sectors are particularly noteworthy.

What are the technological obstacles to be overcome in the further development of 3D printing?

Currently, for example, longer production times compared to conventional manufacturing processes have to be overcome with new technology. Until this and other technological obstacles are overcome, we are relying on clever re-engineering to compensate for any disadvantages of 3D printing through material savings or function integration, for example.

Which target group do you specifically address with your company?

All companies interested in additive manufacturing. We use potential analyses to determine individually whether it makes sense to start using additive manufacturing and which process or industrial 3D printer can be used. Our concern is to provide comprehensive support along the entire onboarding and development process.

With which trade show highlight will you come to the “Special Show 3D” during Motek/Bondexpo 2021 in Stuttgart?

  • Continuous Fiber 3D Printer
  • Multimaterial 3D Printer
  • 3D printer for high-performance polymers
  • Numerous exciting use cases
