[China Packaging News] China's manufacturing industry is upgrading to intelligence. In this process, China is optimistic about the development of industrial robots because of the high labor cost and serious shortage of labor in the future. In contrast, although 3D printing technology is regarded as the future of manufacturing industry by the industry, many enterprises have been on the sidelines. The reason is quite helpless. Luo Jun, CEO of China 3D printing technology industry alliance, explained to the media that domestic manufacturers "don't know how to start"
3d printing Market: the prospect of 200billion yuan and three bottlenecks
3d printing can also become an additive manufacturing technology. It is a kind of rapid prototyping technology. Its principle is to realize raw material superposition molding through three-dimensional digital model design and laser sintering
compared with traditional manufacturing, 3D printing has the advantages of low cost (including cost saving in manufacturing complex items, cost saving in product diversification, cost saving without assembly, like selling vegetables), environmental protection, accurate entity replication, etc. With the above characteristics, 3D printing is regarded as the future of manufacturing development and has a bright future
the industry is optimistic that the scale of the global 3D printing market can rise from the current 30 billion yuan, which is absolutely different from the traditional vacuum forming process, to 200billion yuan in 2020. However, under the good development trend, the development bottleneck faced by the current 3D printing technology can not be ignored, mainly in three aspects: materials, costs and talents
theoretically, all materials should be able to be used for 3D printing. However, in fact, the materials that are easy to use are very limited. There are only more than ten kinds of materials, such as gypsum, inorganic powder, photosensitive resin, plastic, ceramics and so on, which are expensive. The industry disclosed that due to technical limitations, there are few manufacturers that can produce the above materials, so 3D printing materials are very scarce
in terms of cost, 3D printers and 3D printing materials depend on imports, which makes the cost of using 3D printing technology in China high
in terms of talents, domestic professionals who really understand 3D printing technology and application are still very scarce
hundreds of enterprises are waiting to work. How can additive manufacturing "add value" in time
at present, about 100 enterprises in China are engaged in 3D printing business, mainly distributed in Beijing, Qingdao, Xi'an, Wuhan, Nanjing, Chengdu and Zhuhai
a-share market, there are Jinyun Anyi laser and Yinxi technology engaged in 3D printing services; Those involved in 3D printing materials business include Asia Pacific Technology and BaoTi; Downstream molding manufacturers include Han's laser, Jiangnan Jiajie, Lida optoelectronics, etc
under the general trend of intelligent manufacturing, China's policies are constantly promoting the development of 3D printing. Inspired by this, more and more companies engaged in 3D printing will be engaged in the future. However, there are bottlenecks in materials, costs and talents, which are hidden dangers in the future development of 3D printing in China and should be solved as soon as possible
the industry believes that the situation can be broken from three aspects: first, policies promote the development of 3D printing material technology, encourage manufacturers to improve process technology and reduce costs; Second, with the help of foreign capital, the crowdfunding and PPP modes reported in the half year of 2017 were introduced to provide financial support for the development of 3D printing; Third, the enterprise improves the technology, promotes the maturity of 3D printing application in a certain field, and then continuously promotes this technology
