Ryoga Engineering’s additive manufacturing and 3D printing services are ideal for accelerating product development and production processes. Ryoga can accelerate your product development process from design to prototyping and manufacturing in a highly efficient and fast way.
Our manufacturing team is prepared to meet your needs with a wide range of processes and materials.
What is additive manufacturing and what are its advantages?
Additive manufacturing, or additive manufacturing by layers, uses computer-aided design (CAD) or a 3D model to instruct machines to build an object layer by layer. The CAD drawing acts as a set of instructions or drawings that illustrate all the intricacies of the product to be manufactured. These drawings tell the machine where and when to place the material. Complex objects can thus be manufactured without the need to assemble separate parts. This type of freedom design allows an industrial engineer or designer to improve functionality through greater complexity, which is not usually the case with traditional manufacturing methods. The result is an intricate, unique, and lightweight product with a high level of resistance.
There are fewer errors and the ability to identify and solve problems before printing. To achieve a similar result with traditional methods would require additional steps such as carving, milling, machining, or forming. In other words, additive technologies create geometries that were previously impossible to produce.
Although additive technologies have been used primarily for prototyping, software and hardware materials have matured to produce end-use parts with production quality, a process known as direct digital manufacturing.
Now more than ever, development can be advanced with faster iterations of high-quality physical prototypes. Additive manufacturing can be applied to products from a wide range of sectors, such as medical, dental, biotechnology, aerospace, automotive, construction, industrial design, education, fashion, food and many more.
Additive manufacturing gives your project the freedom of a lightweight, low-cost, and durable product, while meeting the demands of a complex design. Some of the additional advantages of additive manufacturing are:
