ITRI Presents First Indigenous 3D Metal Printer with Eye-Catching Golden Ornaments "Printed"

The gold ornaments made by ITRI’s 3D metal printer has caught everybody’s eyes

In this presentation, through 3D formatting, and slicing parameter design, the 3D printer of ITRI directly realizes the designers' ingenuity illustrated in their 2D or 3D design drawings. Then after polishing, grinding, plating and other post-treatments, a golden ornament which is as beautiful as the one manufactured by handiwork or RP lost-wax casting process is presented. It can cut two to seven manufacturing processes, allowing precise evaluation of material cost. It only takes a half day from receiving an order to printing the product, which is especially suitable for the Internet marketing stressing customization and in-time inventory.

Currently ITRI has launched the 3D metal printer whose product dimension is within 10 centimeters. Meanwhile it has also produced the associated metallic powders like titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, and mold steel. These crucial technologies will be eventually transferred to domestic manufacturers which can consequently establish an integrated production platform with a price tag of less than NT$10 million. With this platform, Taiwan’s manufacturers can provide key materials, equipment techniques and trial production service. In comparison with the foreign 3D metal printer worth NT$20 million to NT$30 million, this indigenous system can make Taiwan’s industry seize the business opportunity of 3D metal printing.
