Virtual Twins Tech, Teleoperation, and 3D Printing will Transform the Producer/Consumer Relationship

The fabrication, integration, and control of virtually any product is increasingly becoming digitized. This trend is accelerating as evidenced by recent surveys indicating that 3D Printing and other forms of additive manufacturing will have a positive impact, increase creativity and dramatically improve time to market, especially for certain goods and services.

DUBLIN, Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire

Applications and services facilitated by 3D Printing include prototyping, printing spare parts, and producing finished goods across many industry verticals including manufacturing, healthcare, electronics, consumer goods, automotive, aerospace, and many more.

The fabrication, integration, and control of virtually any product is increasingly becoming digitized. This trend is accelerating as evidenced by recent surveys indicating that 3D Printing and other forms of additive manufacturing will have a positive impact, increase creativity and dramatically improve time to market, especially for certain goods and services.

Robotic automation is advancing 3D printing applications beyond conventional manufacturing to encompass delivery of products and assets where and when they are needed. For example, specialized robotics are enabling innovative structure construction such as buildings, bridges, and other physical infrastructure.

In the healthcare arena, 3D printed prosthetics is facilitating significantly faster design and delivery for amputee solutions as well as prototyping and try-before-you-buy for patients. 3D custom implants provide efficient and substantially more expeditious delivery of bone replacement material for cancer patients.

In the enterprise and industrial arena, the fabrication, integration, and control of virtually any product is increasingly becoming digitized. This trend is accelerating as evidenced by recent surveys indicating that 3D Printing and other forms of additive manufacturing will have a positive impact, increase creativity and dramatically improve time to market, especially for certain goods and services.

Every person in the developed world will be positively impacted by 3D printed products thanks to fully integrated, flexible, and distributed manufacturing.
