The difference between industrial 3D printing and home 3D printers
With the gradual rise of the 3d printing industry over the years, home 3d printers have emerged, appearing in everyone’s field of vision, appearing in the family, this does not mean that industrial 3d printers have been abandoned.
With the gradual rise of the 3d printing industry over the years, home 3d printers have emerged, appearing in everyone’s field of vision, appearing in the family, this does not mean that industrial 3d printers have been abandoned, because these two types of machines have their own merits and are used in In different fields, let's talk about the difference between these two machines.
1. Printing accuracy
Since the home machine currently only has two technologies, FDM and SLA, from the data information, the difference between industrial machines and home machines is not that big. The minimum resolution of FDM is determined by the size of the printing extrusion port, which is basically 0.3- Between 0.6mm, the layer thickness is determined by the Z axis. Since home machines often use stepping motors, industrial 3D printers use servo motors to prevent loss of synchronization and other precision distortion problems during the actual printing process.
2. Printing speed
Printing speed is another key difference between industrial machines and home machines. Due to the cost constraints of home machines, 16-bit and 32-bit chips are often used as the main control chip. The data processing speed is difficult to compare with 64-bit CPUs. In FDM Due to the accuracy, the difference is not big, but in SLA technology, the scanning speed** of the former is 1m/sec, while the latter can reach 7m-15m/sec.
3. Design and removal quality of print support
The design of printing support and the separable parameters of the printing entity is the most important indicator to distinguish between industrial machines and household machines. What is the reason? Because industrial machines are used in the actual production field, they must have high controllability for the final printing effect Standard, the friends who have used the home machine understand that whether it is FDM or SLA equipment, because the support and the entity are not distinguished during the printing process, the peeling of the support after printing is a particularly uncontrollable factor, and it will generally cause peeling in the end. Failure, damage to the entity. The industrial machine fundamentally solves this problem.
