Project Description

In the situation of epidemic, the ‘danger’ of SME printing services.

During the CNY holiday, the whole nation is fighting against the virus, many 3D printings related SME is unable to resume work. Even if, the cooperation efficiency of upstream and downstream companies will be greatly reduced, and companies are facing difficult crises. According to result of the Antarctic Bear online survey, over 76% of 3D printing companies were unable to determine when they could start work and make decision based on the epidemic.

In the situation of epidemic, the ‘opportunity’ of SME printing services.

However, small portion printing services companies make use of the fast manufacture advantage of 3D printer to provide customers with low-sot and high-efficiency production methods which has created revenue for the company.

The case comes from a small printing service company in Foshan, who bought 2 set of high-temperature 3D printers and 1 ordinary 3D printer from IEMAI 3D. From February 10 till February 19, a person took 6 customer orders and created income up to 12000 yuan. Among those orders, the material mostly in demand is PEEK, PC, ABS, TPU and PLA, and these product types are mostly medical products, footwear and industrial prototype.

Why 3D printer technology (FDM) can seize opportunity during the epidemic.

  1. Small studio: small footprint, one person with multiple printers, home can be converted into a studio, no interruption with each other.
  2. Multi-material compatibility: IEMAI 3D high temperature printer can print most of the thermoplastic materials on the market, meeting different performance requirement.
  3. Market factor: Affected by the epidemic, processing plants with other molding methods (such as machining, injection molding…) failed to resume work
  4. Fast iteration: Products are shipped within a day and sent by SF Express and efficiency can still be guaranteed under the impact of epidemic.
