Yihu Yang:The 3D Printing in the New Industry Chain of Global Digital Producing System
Esun has decided to start producing and developing the polylactic acid(PLA) since the end of 2003. We received the inquiry about PLA in producing welding rod in the beginning of 2007,which acts as the only helper when we’re struggling to search the PLA applications. Later we learned that the original welding rod just the 3D printing filaments,because of this opportunity eSUN has the access to enter the hi-tech industry--3D printing technology and creativity.
In these years,eSUN has visited more than forty countries in Europe,America,Asia,and also participate in dozens of 3D printing show,there are more than thirty shows even only in this year. Visiting hundreds of 3D printer manufacture,the reseller and end-user,which experiences give us the access to witness the rapid development and growth for the FDM printer in the world. 3D printing in Europe and developed countries has ushered in its infancy ages. In Japan, Korea, China, Russia, Scandinavia, Australia and New Zealand and other regions have entered the post-import goods.In Southeast Asia, the Middle East, South America and the African continent has also gradually entered the product introduction phase.
3D printing technology has been developped with the term of personal FDM printing application and commercial printing field. Both of them accord&promote each other, but the market of personal FDM printing has been develpped faster than the commercial printer. China is the producing and supplying base of personal FDM and the accessories. The design of European&America,making in China and distribution in the world has being the official labor devision in the industry of FDM. The commercial printer also has a good foundation in China on the base of big local market and powerful international communication and cooperation.
The FDM printer was firstly initiated by DIY enthusiasts and gradually developed into the fileld of enterprise with design in the needing of mold. Now it has being developing in the colleague,middle school,elementary school with a rapid speed,which will train a generation of digit intellectual talents. Surely,this will promote the develpment of the FDM in family. I believe most of families will own their own FDM printer in the first tier&second tier city in China. In the next decade,the digital creating system is expected to be structureed in the whole world.
No matter FDM, SLA or SLS, 3D printing technology is undergoing rapid changes, and organic, inorganic materials as well as metal materials are becoming more and more colorful. The prices of 3D printers and materials are steadily declining, from the aerospace, medical, cultural to education and so on, the application is more and more extensive. A era of 3D printing and application is springing up around the world, which will build up a intelligence building system of physical form, just like internet + is building a global information system. Human society has entered into an era of a new technological revolution.
Now, on the one hand, with the advantages of stable quality, rich varieties, cost-effective and wide application, eSUN has established a good relationship with many world famous 3D printer manufacturers in FDM 3D printing materials, occupies the mainstream of European and American markets, sales to more than 80 countries in the world, and has won a good reputation. On the other hand, eSUN is initiating national standards of FDM 3D printing materials, and has been cooperating with suppliers and research institutes in domestic and foreign countries to continuously develop new products so as to meet the market needs.
The current Chinese 3D printing equipment and materials business should increase R&D and marketing investment to maintain manufacturing advantages. 3D printing industry in China should also break the short board of design software and build service platform to occupy the commanding heights of the market!
