Two-thirds of manufacturers are using 3D printing

3d printersIt has been revealed that two-thirds of manufacturers are using 3D printing is some form, according to a survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers [PWC].

With only one-third of the 100 companies surveyed not using 3D printing, it was shown that many industrial manufacturers are using the technology for rapid prototyping, production and custom parts.

However, it also said that the majorities of companies are still in the process of experimenting with the technology in a bid to discover how is best to apply it to their production processes – highlighting just how early we are into the 3D print revolution.

PWC also stated that companies will find use for 3D printing beyond fast-paced prototyping, particularly as 3D printing technology evolves towards handling multiple materials and fast print speeds.

Of all the companies that took part in the PWC survey, almost 30% stated that they were experimenting with 3D printing technology; 25% said they used 3D printers solely for prototyping; 10% for both prototyping and production; 3% for creating products that couldn’t be made with traditional methods and the final 1% for final products or components.


“Despite these trends, the 3D printing industry faces challenges,” the PWC report said. “Rapid prototyping will remain important but is not the game-changer that will expand the technology into high-volume use cases.

“The industry should pivot to printing more fully functional and finished products or components in volumes that greatly outnumber the volumes of prototypes produced.

“Printer speeds are increasing across the product spectrum; at least one high-end system under development could print up to 500 times faster than today’s top machines. And key patents are about to expire, a development likely to hasten the pace of innovation,” PWC stated.”

Instagram printer launched in UK

instagram printerSocial Playground, an Australian digital entertainment agency, have announced the launch of a new Instagram printer in the United Kingdom.

The idea behind the concept is to assist event organisers truly engage with the generation behind the ‘selfie’ craze that has swept across social media.

The Live Instagram Printer, which is described by the company as a twist on a traditional photobooth, gives smartphone and Instagram users the ability to take a photo, add the event hashtag and then collect the branded print of their photo within one minute.

Business director at Social Playground, Matt Barbelli, said: “As a result, consumers are more likely to share multiple photos. Offering the novelty Polaroid-style print-out ensures consumers remember to add the brand hashtag to every photo.”

Social Playground has recently partnered with well-established brands, such as Topshop, Topman, Adidas and Spotify, among others.  In fact, the agency’s first experience of the events market in the UK came through working with ASOS, where they provided their Instagram printer services for the online fashion retailer’s Epic Summer event.

“Launching in London has been an exciting step for Social Playground. With the number of events happening every day, we are excited to bring a fresh way of engaging consumers and guests to the market, with no doubt given Instagram’s popularity in the UK,” Barbelli added.

The Live Instagram Printer is available for event hire, annual licensing and permanent installations, with Social Playground also offering the Live Instagram Feed service – a data visualisation tool that captures Instagram photos as they are being uploaded and shows them as part of an animated display on a large screen at an event.
