3-D-printed alloys

Posted on Updated on

In the opinion of Lead author and Ph.D. candidate from RMIT University’s School of Engineering, Carmelo Todaro, “the promising results could inspire new forms of additive manufacturing.
If you look at the microscopic structure of 3-D printed alloys, they’re often made up of large and elongated crystals.
This can make them less acceptable for engineering applications due to their lower mechanical performance and increased tendency to crack during printing.
But the microscopic structure of the alloys we applied ultrasound to during printing looked markedly different: the alloy crystals were very fine and fully equiaxed, meaning they had formed equally in all directions throughout the entire printed metal part.”

Is an All In One Laser Printer The Best Printer To Buy?

 

When it comes to printers, you’re spoiled for choice. There are numerous types of printers available from Laser printers, LED printers to Dot matrix printers and more. The choice of what printer is right for you really boils down to what you need it for. If it’s high end photo quality you are after, inkjets are probably going to offer you more for creative use, but in the office, laser printers are king. But it’s the all-in-one laser printers that offer the most in the office. 

 

 

Advantages of an All In One Laser Printer

Since all-in-one laser printers offer so much, they make the best home printers and are perfectly suitable for a busy office environment where a machine that can cope with their high volume printing needs is needed. But they are not only the best choice for offices requiring high volume printing, since all in one printers offer the full package of features, they also work well in the home, or for whoever, or whatever organisation requires a printer packed with the features of an all in one laser printer.

all-in-one-printer

So what do they have to offer?

Versatility

An all-in-one laser printer has all the bases covered. Each machine acts as a printer, scanner, fax machine and copier, all in this swiss army knife of a printing machine. They are also equipped to quickly and easily connect to a secure network, allowing you to effortlessly share work documents. 

 

Wireless Network Connectivity

Within companies or organisations, wireless network connectivity is a game changer and one of the most important aspects of the all-in-one laser printer. This built in wireless network acts as its own network and does not require a PC or an external modem to function. 

 

Users are able to easily print documents through the Google cloud, Apple Air Print, USB sticks, mobile devices and more. 

 

Efficiency

With everything conveniently grouped together in one machine, an all-in-one laser printer offers unmatched efficiency. With everything in one place, the process is streamlined, saving you time and energy. Whatever task you require, whether it’s printing from your phone, making a photocopy, scanning a document, or whatever else, you can rest easy knowing it can all be done without fuss from the same machine. 

Affordability

Even though the upfront cost of a multifunction laser printer is more, in the long run you save money. As it’s multiple machines all in one. If you were to buy each machine separately, you would be paying much more than you would for a single all-in-one printer. 

What Do You Need It For… Home or Office?

While all-in-one laser printers are suitable for both home and office settings, specs can vary between machines. So it’s good to know beforehand what environment the machine will be used in, in order to choose the best machine for the job. 

 

If your looking for a multifunctional printer to be used in the home, than you generally want to find one that can provide excellent image quality. If you are looking for an all-in-one laser printer for the office, than you generally want to focus more on text quality than image quality. 

What Else Do All In One Printers Offer

While we have mentioned the main features of a multifunctional printer, there are a lot of other quality features boasted by todays all-in-one laser printers. Some of those include:

Colour

The laser printers of today offer excellent colour quality, with bright, bold colours, well balanced contrast and accurate text. With the incredible resolution and colour technology offered by todays laser printers, not only do they offer high volume capabilities in office settings, but can be used in more creative or personal projects. 

Compact Size

This is one of the more attractive features of a multifunctional printer, it’s size. While freestanding office photocopy machines are very big and bulky in size, all-in-one printers are not, they are compact in size and perfect for smaller offices, or when needed in close proximity (eg kept on top of a desk).

3D Printing plays a vital part in the manufacturing processes of various industries and businesses. From helping  automobile companies to design spare auto parts to assisting construction businesses to replicate intricate models and structures, 3D printing is undoubtedly transforming the concept of digital printing. In order to market your brand correctly and create high quality products, you need to invest in the right type of print services. Following are some useful tips for selecting the right 3D printing services if you are on a restricted budget and timeframe.

Checking Quality of Printing Through Samples and Prototypes

Whether you are opting for a regular or rush printing service, it is equally important to go through the quality of printing beforehand. When approaching a printing company for 3D printing, you can ask for samples or view their work online on their site or on social media platforms. However, the best option is to physically check out their samples. This will help you to personally check the quality of the material used for printing. 

Use of Relevant Tools and Technologies

If a company uses relevant tools and technologies for printing, then you will probably have a better quality of printing as 3D printing requires consistency, clarity and precision in printing.

If your printing company invests in better 3D printing tools, then it will ultimately benefit the manufacturing of the goods offered by your business and will help to create a lasting impression on your clients and customers.

Therefore, it is extremely important that you check whether your desired printing company has the necessary resources for printing the products that you need. 

Printing on a Limited Timeframe and Printing Budget

Better Customer Support 

If a printing service has maintained an excellent communication between you and your partners, then you can get regular updates and information regarding any changes made into the print. 

If your printing service has a trained customer support team, then this serves as an added bonus for your printing project. If your printing service providers are well trained and professional, then they might utilize all their skills and resources to make sure that your project is completed on time without compromising on the quality of printing.

High Quality Service

While selecting a 3D printing service for your business, make sure to opt for one that has a good track record of providing high quality prints within a sufficient amount of time. They need to know the latest printing trends and should have enough experience with printing to deliver the desired results on time. An experienced printing service is most likely to check the prototype first before of giving it for print.

Online Reviews

Online reviews are also a great way to check the standard and quality of a printing service. Make sure to go through reviews posted online . This will help you to decide whether to invest in a particular print service or not.

When you are looking for a printing service for your business, you need to make sure whether your printing goods can be delivered within a specific timeframe or not.

Therefore, it is extremely important that you select a company that is dependable and responsive. Make sure to inform your printing service  about the deadlines beforehand and work only if a particular printing service commits to deliver the required product within the given timeframe. 

Conclusion

3D printing is a revolutionary process for creating 3D objects through digital files. This method helps users to create complex designs within limited budget and timeframe without relying on conventional manufacturing methods.

3D printers can save a lot of time and encourages more and more  businesses to opt for decentralized manufacturing, however, without investing in the right 3D printing technology, you won’t be able to achieve the desired results within the required amount of time.
