MCADCafe Industry Predictions for 2024 – Meltio

Saturday, January 6th, 2024

By Angel Llavero López de Villalta, CEO at Meltio

At Meltio we will continue to innovate and solve metal additive manufacturing needs of the global industrial sector. Our unique wire-laser metal 3D printing technology is reliable and is changing the manufacturing paradigm with respect to traditional techniques: it allows to manufacture and repair metal parts in an industrial environment 7 days a week and 24 hours a day, making the creation of metal parts a reality, reducing manufacturing costs and providing competitiveness.

For Meltio, the year 2023 is being a year of consolidation at a technological level in terms of strengthening our commercial network and our distribution channel worldwide. We have expanded the facilities of our Meltio factory in Linares (Jaén) to develop new metal AM solutions and industrial applications, we have expanded our production capacity, we have acquired new land to further expand our factory in Linares, we have rented new spaces to expand our R&D capacity to launch in the market new wire-laser metal 3D printing products and we aim to expand our production capabilities and to certify our technological applications in all the industrial sectors in which we are involved. With this technological consolidation, we will be able to secure new contracts with our industrial customers. The year 2024 for us is going to be a very exciting year in which we are leaving behind our pre-adolescence.

3D Printing Trends For 2024: Shaping the Future of Manufacturing

As we stand on the brink of 2024, Materialise reflects on the dynamic landscape of 3D printing, anticipating not just growth, but a fundamental shift in adoption patterns. In the coming year, we predict four key trends – or shifts – that will redefine the industry.

Trend 1: 3D Printing – Fast Friend or Part of the Family?

In the realm of 3D printing, we’re witnessing a dual evolution—two approaches coexisting harmoniously. The first approach, “3D Printing as a Service,” embraces external expertise, offering swift and cost-effective solutions for one-off parts and prototypes through service bureaus. Simultaneously, the second approach sees 3D printing seamlessly integrated into production processes, revolutionizing mass manufacturing. Companies now recognize its intrinsic value and leverage it to print specific components for larger series of end-use parts or engage in the mass production of customized goods.

This dual approach marks a departure from the traditional role of 3D printing, transforming it from a peripheral player to an integral part of the production orchestra. At the same time, the demand for application-specific machines and workflows is driving innovation across the entire spectrum, from hardware to post-processing and software.
