The technique of screen printing is a process in which there is a mesh that is used to transfer or convert the ink onto a substrate, to the ink by a blocking stencil. There is a use of a blade that is moved across the screen to fill the open apertures of the mesh with the use of the ink. The 3d printing is a kind of screen printing which is a modified screen printing process that is based on the principle of using the power binder mixture which is printed layer by layer in the desired shape which is followed by the process of debinding and with a small conventional sintering step.
What is the purpose of 3d printing?
The purpose of these kinds of printers works on a wider picture as it can be used for business purposes and can also be undertaken as a hobby by someone. This kind of printing is useful and considered good as it uses only the minimal material to create the items. The 3d printing tends to allows the users to create new ideas and products and even creates construct low-cost prototypes and even finds replacement parts at a very low cost. The customs designs are one of a kind which is very cheap construction of items which makes this kind of printing desirable.
Some people use this to make the toys for their children and widely used in the field of gamers which create miniatures. People even tend to create costume parts. As the price of the printers drops and the quality and the speed increases there are more printers that are showing up in the house.
Advantages of the 3d screen printing
The process of 3d printing creates items by building up the layer by layer at a time. This method of printing proves to be advantageous as compared to traditional techniques. This process brings in the forefront a lot of advantages as mentioned below:
one of the main and most common advantages is speed which means the speed related to the manufacture of the parts in terms of producing compared to the traditional ones. The result it gives is the rapid verification and the development of the new ideas.
The process needs only a single step of manufacture as compared to the other manufacturing techniques which require a large number of manufacturing steps to be produced.
The other most advantage is the cost one as the manufacturing cost can be broken down in the categories of three as the machine operation costs, the material cost and the cost of the labor.
The design freedom it gives ad there are no restrictions that are made as the components are made layer by layer there is a requirement of the design such as the draft angles, the undercuts and the access of the tool do not apply when it is about designing the parts to be 3d printed.
Hence, this process is quite beneficial as the points given above and a better option as compared to the traditional techniques.
