ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS
It is a process by which digital 3D design data is used to design up an object in layers by layers by depositing material. The name “3D printing” is progressively utilised as a similarity for Additive manufacturing process. Additive assembling use materials which are ready for use for the fine powder form.
Additive manufacturing began in nineteen eighties in Japan. The are different types of additive manufacturing one of them which is sterioligraphy which was created by Charles Hulls in 1983,then in three years later they create other type which is selective laser printing in the year1990.
The aim of this report is to display the design of the pliers using the most widely what we call additive manufacturing process called Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM). Fused Deposition Modelling is an type of additive manufacturing technology that is used for prototyping, modelling, and production applications. The Fused Deposition Modelling is one amongst foremost common techniques used for the 3D printing.
S. Scott Crump is the one who established this technology in the 1980s and was implemented in 1990. The technology that is used in the project to prototype a product, it is useful for bending, compression, cutting, and riveting flat or spherical stock of materials which are difficult to hold with fingers.
For work involving cutting and skinning wires, cutting and removing pins, and other fasteners, it also be used to adjust bolts and nuts
It can apply limited torque (twisting force) without damaging the work
Can be used to grip round square, flat and hexagon objects, this features make it unique to a pair of pliers which are built in one function
Minimized costs of manufacturing the productDue to not so much material utilised in the product, the product is very affordable as most pliers are manufactured through traditional foundry processes which can be very costly because most of them are manually operated, thus the pricing also includes the labor costs of producing the product.This kind is manufactured through 3D manufacturing helps in decreasing the shelf cost of the product.WeightOver the years most manufacturing tools have been redesigned over and over due to their discomfort in handling, with this pliers we have made it light in weight for proper handling and portability, in industries technicians can carry it around with ease and if dropped from specific height it will not cause a big damage to whatever or whoever it falls on.
The FDM 3D printing is a simple, not expensive technology for printing prototypes that is widely used for various products. The technology is cost effective and it is used in various organizations for printing parts at the lowest cost. The technology is very firm and uses materials of high strength and can be used by all organizations for printing prototypes
