What is Manufacturing?
Manufacturing is the process of converting raw materials and other components into manufactured products that meet a customer’s expectations. Today, production can be done with a wide variety of technologies depending on the need. The most important concepts that determine these needs can be listed as raw materials to be used, quantity to be produced, technology to meet minimum requirements and production time.
In production, we can classify the needs depending on the quantity as mass production, rapid production, prototype production. As Polygon Engineering, we offer engineering and production solutions for low-volume manufacturing and prototype production.
Also known as rapid manufacturing, different production methods can be applied according to the number of production and material.
This production method made with HP 3D printers. HP 3D printers can produce up to 10 times faster than their nearest competitor with the MJF technology they use. With this capability, HP has proven to be a mass-produced device. It caters to a wide range of sectors thanks to its various material options and the advantages of the material properties used. Details about this method can be found here.
If your needs are in the range of 10-100 pieces, you can use this method depending on the part geometry. In this way, you can obtain the properties of the material you need with a similar material at more cost-effective times and without getting involved in traditional mold processes. Details about this method can be found here.
This method is needed if the production will be between 50-400 units and production sizes are large, but material options are limited. Details about RIM can be found here.
In cases up to 500-50,000 production, production is made of mould made of more easily processed material according to need. It can offer an advantage in terms of time and cost according to part geometry. Details about the method can be found here.
It is a production method based on the principle of melting filamented thermoplastic parts and applying them to layer-by-layer production table. Details about the manufacturing method can be found here.
SLA technology is based on the principle of hardening certain parts of the photopolymer resin layer, which is liquid at room temperature, by means of a point-based ultraviolet laser beam. Details about the manufacturing method can be found here.
DMP (Direct Metal Printing) is one of the few 3D printing technologies that directly form a metal part with the 3D computer model. DMP is one of the most impressive 3D printing techniques, as it allows you to print your own designs on metals such as Aluminum or Titanium. Details about the manufacturing method can be found here.
