The introduction of 3D printing has transformed the manufacturing process, and, by extension, the water industry. These changes are easier to understand within the context of the manufacturing process itself, and the ways in which printing technologies have adapted traditional methods of production. Additive manufacturing has a range of benefits for both efficiency and flexibility. With access to a 3D printer, a manufacturer can produce a part in a shorter span of time, with lower costs and less waste. They also have the capacity to print parts with complex geometry to enhance strength and safety. Naturally, the implications for additive manufacturing are immense. This article seeks to explore those implications, examining the value of 3D printing for the purification, desalination, and distribution of water in countries around the world. Consider the three examples below. 1. The Naked Filter The advantages of addit ive manufacturing have allowed for a variety […]
