In our world, where new products are added to technological products every day, the inventions that we could call as dreams before can now pass through even the smallest news without attracting our attention. Today, large companies and growing companies are forced to keep up with this rapid change. The development of technology increases the acceleration of the change in our lives by accelerating. When we think about how much the inventions made in the last 50 years compared to the previous 50 years. Of course we don’t know much more and need to be explained, but since we’ve succeeded in globalizing the world, we’re doing every job at shorter times.
The 3D printer technology, which entered our lives not many years ago, but which we do not even consider new technologies today, has told us that it can achieve much bigger things in the future. The 3D printer, which was faced with huge problems in the early days of application, has become a very large and very successful sector today. This adventure, which started with the production of a few visual and entertaining materials in the early times, has been carried to many different dimensions as can be seen from the title of our writing. The idea that metals will be shaped and produced with a 3D printer has aroused curiosity in many different sectors from construction to the IT sector. Recently, we have witnessed the use of 3D printers in the new shoes of various shoe companies.
Over the past few years, metal 3D printing has become increasingly popular. 3D printers come into prominence with the ability to easily produce unique materials with practical and aesthetic features to suit various products such as prototypes, miniatures, jewelry, functional parts and even kitchen utensils. Because the metal 3D printing is very hot, parts can be printed in 3D for successive production. Most parts created with metal 3D printing offer much better performance than those produced by traditional methods. In traditional production, making metal and plastic objects can be a laborious process. A lot of defective parts can be produced during production, which can lead to the use of excess material. When aircraft manufacturers produce metal parts, up to 90% of the material is spent to produce the metal parts in the right forms, and with only 10%, we can produce the material we want. 3D metal printing consumes less energy and minimizes waste. In addition, products manufactured with a 3D metal printer can be 60% lighter than their counterparts, which saves us millions of dollars in weight reduction, primarily at the aviation institute.
So don’t you want to explore the world of 3D metal printers that will shape the future and affect our future both so close and so important?
It is not possible to use a normal household 3D printer because extremely high temperatures are required for metal 3D printing. Simply put, unfortunately we will not be able to produce products with a 3D metal printer at home within this decade. However, as nanotechnology evolves, we can see significant growth in new applications. Using a system very similar to your 2-D printer at home, it is even possible to mix different materials, such as plastics and metals, such as silver, conductive 3D printable ink, into the same object.
Even if you cannot print 3D metal objects at home for the time being, you can sign perfect products with the 3D printers that we use today with plastic filaments with additional metal powders. These are plastic-based filaments containing a significant percentage of metal powders but sufficient to be printed at low temperature (200 – 300 degrees Celsius) with almost any 3D printer. At the same time, they contain enough metal to achieve the appearance, feel and weight of a metallic object. The metal 3D printing fibers in the composition are typically in the form of 50 percent metal powder. In addition, a Dutch 3D printer filament company claims 85 percent metal powder produces much more robust and quality prints. These metal 3D filaments are called MetalFil Antique Bronze and MetalFil Classic Copper. You can even print them at “medium” temperatures of 190 to 200 degrees Celsius.
The Benefits of Metal 3D Writing:
- Unique metallic appearance
- Ideal for jewelry, sculpture, household equipment or replica works
- High durability
- Robustness due to structural design
- General printing temperature range 195 ° C – 220 ° C
- Very small shrinkage during cooling
How does the system work?
An inkjet printer works using hundreds of tiny ink guns to spray ink on paper. The 3D metal printer works the same way, except for three dimensions: ink layer – in this case metal
