When to choose 3D printing?
3D printing is increasing rapidly in industry, early adopters have gone from strength to strength and have seen the benefits first-hand of how additive manufacturing can assist their production lines.
Where 3D printing was once seen as suitable merely for prototyping and one-off products, it is now essential to production.
Widely used as an investment casting approach, it has huge benefits in reducing the costs of traditional methods of tooling for injection moulding.
As the 3D printing technology continues to evolve, additive manufacturing promises to revolutionise all industries and shape the way we work, play live and travel for the future.
Researchers are already forecasting that the 3D printing market is likely to reach over $40 billion by 2026 and could account for $6 billion of the healthcare industry by 2028.

Why use 3D printing over Injection Moulding?
Initial tooling for injection moulding can be expensive – avoid the initial outlay associated with traditional manufacturing techniques by choosing our 3D printing service or 3D printers.
Additive Manufacturing offers a freedom of design not possible with injection moulding or subtractive manufacturing. Furthermore, with no mould fees, customisation becomes an easy option
3D Printing enables manufacturers to continuously adapt their range, improve product performance, reduce weight and consolidate multiple parts into one. Enabling them to decrease SKU numbers and easily enhance their offering continuously.
The 3D printing process offered by Photocentric enables customers to make as many alterations as required or changes to prints throughout the production, without being tied to additional charges for amends or retooling.
At Photocentric, we pride ourselves on our quick turnaround times, combined with the ease of the 3D printing process, you really can go from concept to market in a matter of days.
Photocentric 3D print services enable you to make low-volume personalised manufacturing accessible at any time or to support peak times when mass manufacturing is urgently required to support your traditional process.
