With the increasing development scale of 3D printing technology in various industries, many domestic 3D printing equipment manufacturers have scrambled for market share by increasing R & D investment and brand promotion. Take an East e-commerce platform as an example, there are more than 500 brands displayed by searching 3D printers. Of course, there are only some brands specializing in manufacturing 3D printing equipment, and more agent brands or 3D printing service providers.
At present, according to relevant statistics, the main market source of domestic 3D printing equipment manufacturers still depends on industrial manufacturing, and the proportion of consumer grade market is still relatively low, about 30%. Many consumers are surprised that there are tens of thousands to millions of industrial grade 3D printers, while the consumer grade only needs thousands or even hundreds to assemble one. Why is the consumer grade market not as big as the industrial grade market? In fact, as long as a simple analysis, it can be understood that industrial grade 3D printers have high prices but high profits, but the greater the relative R & D investment, but the better the mature market. The price of consumer grade is low, and the profit is naturally low. At present, the main purchasing groups of consumer grade 3D printers are still concentrated in the majority of individual enthusiasts, and the general public will not choose to buy them. Therefore, most manufacturers still focus on developing industrial grade 3D printers.
So, if a factory needs to use industrial 3D printers to make some products such as hand molds, portrait sculptures and industrial parts, how should manufacturers choose a good 3D printer brand? Here, the following points are listed to help manufacturers select equipment for reference. Of course, they are also for reference only:
First, when selecting 3D printer brand manufacturers, we should first clarify our own needs. Understand what industrial 3D printers are for. Because there are several technologies for 3D printers, such as FDM, SLA, LCD, etc. We must first clarify our own needs, and then select brand manufacturers in combination with our own needs;
Second, in order to promote their products, most 3D printer brand manufacturers have left traces on the network and many user feedback. Therefore, after selecting a good brand, you can search online to see whether the brand is reliable;
Third, after selection, it is recommended to go to the brand manufacturer for field investigation. After all, there are tens of thousands or even millions of industrial grade 3D printers. Seeing is believing. Go to observe and investigate in person, not only can you judge the true and false, but also can watch the strength, service, technology, etc. of brand manufacturers;
Fourth, unless there is a certain budget requirement, the price is not everything. For example, the price of some products is relatively high, but the product quality, pre-sales and after-sales service and technical expenditure of brand manufacturers will also be calculated.
Fifth, if you choose an imported brand and find an agent, you must find a regular agent. The focus is to see whether the agent can give comprehensive after-sales service and technical expenditure, otherwise the equipment will be in trouble.
