Additive Manufacturing – 3D Printing is one of the fundamental elements of the fourth industrial revolution, consists of the automation and digitalization of industry and all business related processes. If we look back to history of evolution of industrial and manufacturing related events, industrial revolutions were always occurring time to time. Change in technology and its concept have a direct or indirect impact on every industrial related developments. These characteristics and the new technologies change the industry’s methods of production at great speed. At the same time they incite economic and social change, profoundly transforming humanity and how it has evolved. Society has lived through three industrial and technological revolutions in the nineteenth and twentieth century’s that have led to progress in all its aspects, both economically and socially.
Since 2014, our industry, society and economy have been experiencing a new change initiated by fourth industrial revolution. These changes paved for a different innovative technologies that give rise to flexible, intelligent and autonomous solutions. This change implies the digital transformation of industry and companies with the integration of new disruptive technologies: 3D printing, IoT, cyber-physical systems (CPS), cybersecurity, cloud computing, blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning and big data. This gives rise to the industry of the future or Smart Factory.
3D Printing have a great impact and carries potential to make huge changes in our society. Main advantage of 3D Printing technology, is it has not limited to any particular industry or manufacturing process. Benefit of this technology can be extended to each and every sector. From health, food, construction, marine, aerospace, you just name it…
