Discover subtractive manufacturing, a more precise process than 3D printing

La Print 3D It is getting the most applause in recent times, but on the dark side there are other manufacturing methods such as subtractive, based on gradually reducing solid pieces of metal.

Unlike 3D printing, which is an additive manufacturing technique, this type of manufacturing allows high resolution and the granting of parts or objects without an unfinished or rough appearance such as that achieved with three-dimensional printing.

Any object that we can see made by 3D printing does not have a perfect finish, and that can be interesting for various uses, but not for example for places or sites where high precision parts are required.

The combination of the two techniques, first printing the piece that can later be modeled, is the perfect technique. to get high precision parts or objects that can then be used in any field. This is precisely what a German company is doing that could revolutionize the market in the coming months.

In a few words and according to a company spokesperson this new manufacturing technique combines the flexibility of printing with the precision of a milling machine, something totally new and revolutionary.

You can see this new machine works in the video that heads this article, and take a good look because perhaps very soon we will see it in many places available to any user, as has happened with 3D printers.
