What is 3D Printed Springs
3D printed springs can be a great solution for a lot of problems. It is a way to keep the cost of the product low and offer a more customized solution to your customer. 3D printing is also environmentally friendly as it produces less waste and it has been found to be better for the environment.
3D printed springs are made by applying liquid resin, in the form of tiny droplets, onto a metal plate. The liquid is then cured with infrared light. The result is a 3D object that can be used as a spring in any product.
The process for making these 3D printed springs can be much faster than the traditional methods of making springs because it doesn’t require heat treatments or any other post-processing like forging or rolling.
How do you make 3D Printed Springs?
A 3D printed spring is a type of spring created with additive manufacturing techniques.
The 3D printer has to be capable of printing in metal, plastic, rubber or adhesive materials.
Different types of springs can be printed depending on the design and the material used: coil springs, torsion springs and compression springs.
