When 3D printing technology is applied to more and more fields, industrial 3D printers and desktop 3D printers are more common. So what is the difference between industrial-grade and desktop-grade 3D printers?
1. The scope of application varies.
The application fields of industrial-grade 3D printers are relatively wide, and they are found in many fields such as aerospace, automobile, medical treatment, and electronics. For example, Xunchen 3D's industrial-grade 3D printer has been applied more maturely, and its 3D printed headsets and dental products can be mass-produced.
Like general desktop computers, desktop computers are also used to print smaller items. In the past, they were mostly used in industrial design, education, animation, archaeology, lighting and other fields. Nowadays, many 3D printers on desktop computers have also been extended to the dental medical industry, and are used in the digital production process of the dental field, as a part of the digital medical model, to assist in printing the required products.
When orthodontic teeth are used in dental products such as implant surgical guides and simulated gums, doctors can directly diagnose and treat on the chair, and use a desktop 3D printer to print out the required dental products, which can greatly shorten the patient's treatment time . As far as I know, Haig Technology’s desktop 3D printer can diagnose and diagnose within one hour, plant within one hour, and repair within one hour, bringing a better diagnostic experience to patients.
2. The quantity of mass production is different.
Desktop 3D printers prefer personalized high customization, like desktop 3D printers suitable for dentistry, which are mainly used for small batch production near chairs. But most industrial-grade 3D printers are used for large-scale industrial production. For example, in the production of 3D printed headphones, using industrial-grade 3D printers can quickly print dozens of headphone shells with a sense of design and comfortable curvature, which are better than traditionally manufactured headphones in terms of speed and accuracy.
In these two aspects, there are still differences between industrial-grade and desktop-grade 3D printers. At present, industrial-grade 3D printers have been widely used in many industries and are suitable for mass production, while desktop-grade 3D printers prefer small batches and individual customization.
