Even though there are amazing innovations nearly ever

y day in the way 3D printers are used in key industries, including automotive, aerospace and

medical, we believe that we’re still just scratching the surface of the potential for 3D printing as an enabl

er of digital transformation,” said Tim Greene, research director at consultancy IDC.

Industry experts, however, have noticed a gradual paradigm shift. Acco

rding to Agam, the sector is on the cusp of a transformation from prototyping and desig

n to real-life manufacturing and end-user engagement. This year could herald such changes.

Conglomerates are leading the pack, with GE celebrating the 30,000th additively-manufac

tured fuel nozzle tip on a 3D printing device at its aviation plant in the US a couple of months ago.Under the addit

ive manufacturing method, the number of parts in a single fuel nozzle tip was reduced from about 20 pieces previo

usly welded together to one whole piece. The nozzle tip’s weight was cut by about 25 percent.
