1. Industrial 3D printers and desktop 3D printers

Now, the 3D printer equipment developed today mainly includes desktop 3D printers and industrial 3D printing machines. Generally, desktop 3D printers are personal or used for personal customization, teaching and home, and industrial-grade 3D printers are mainly used for rapid prototyping and direct manufacturing.

Compared to desktop 3D printers, industrial-grade 3D printer is mainly used in industrial production, these printers are more functional and more efficient, especially in harsh environments. As a production equipment, efficiency is particularly important, large flow, and high-speed printing speed are its main conditions, but its performance stability and reliability also need to be considered.

2. The reasons for the variability of industrial 3D printer speed

At present, in the technical parameter table of industrial 3D printers, the description of printing speed is generally as follows: such as 30-40mm/s, 20-100mm/s, 180mm/s, 180mm/s, but in these aspects, the speed of 3D printer equipment is highly variable for several reasons:

The above speed is the speed of movement of the nozzle in the actual printing workpiece, or the speed of movement when idling, the latter may be much larger than the former.

Printing workpieces of different shapes and sizes requires printing line segments of different lengths and different bend radii. Obviously, the speed of short-term printing must be lower or higher, so the printing speed in the parameter table is wider and cannot accurately reflect the actual printing efficiency of industrial 3D printers.

In addition, in recent years, we have found that more and more fields and the development of industrial 3D printers are related to this. In order to better improve production efficiency and product quality, many domestic and foreign companies have purchased industrial-grade 3D printers to promote the expansion of industrial-grade 3D printers. The market share continues to increase, and the value of industrial-grade 3D printers is more obvious, industrial printers will also be indispensable in the future.

Eplus3D has established companies in Beijing, Hangzhou and Stuttgart, Germany. The annual investment in scientific research accounts for more than 20% of the income. It has comprehensive invention patents, utility model patents, software copyrights, and appearance patents. Fruitful results have been achieved in the design, equipment, process, software, materials and post-processing of additive manufacturing, and the equipment has been exported to more than 40 countries and regions such as Europe, America, Japan, South Korea, and Southeast Asia.
