3D printing customized models are more environmentally friendly and efficient.
Mannequins are not uncommon in everyone’s life. It is widely used in the clothing industry, jewelry industry, cosmetics and other industries, and human body models. The clothing industry accounts for the largest consumption, and the product model is also the largest. The models in the jewelry and cosmetics industries are mostly half-body models.
There are four main materials commonly used in the production of mannequins. FRP (commonly known as glass fiber reinforced plastic), PU polyurethane material, HIPS, and PLA+ material. Environmental protection is the main concern of all walks of life. FRP products may be facing be banned from production and sale due to environmental protection reasons in European and American markets; PU is inconvenient to recycle, and its development prospects are also relatively limited; the main obstacle to HIPS injection blow molding is the high cost of metal molds. When the demand is small, it is not a cost-effective choice.
Compared with the production process of other materials, 3D printing has convenient services such as less investment in production and development, short cycle time, no mold cost, and data archiving of product models. Mass production can also be achieved through the quantitative change of the printer.
Application of eSUN PLA+ mannequins
The size of the human body model is large, and the PLA+3D printing material needs to have good toughness, no brittleness, high strength, drop resistance, large-scale printing without warping, fast printing speed and smooth surface of the model. After repeated comparisons of the performance of various materials, eSUN’s partners believe that all the properties of eSUN’s PLA+3D printing materials are up to the standard and can comprehensively meet their requirements in all aspects. The human body model printed with eSUN PLA+ has excellent surface gloss and a good appearance. Meanwhile, the model has good toughness, high strength, and excellent performance.
