3D Printing Is To Become A Lucrative Manufacturing


LONDON, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the small arms and light weapons market, 3D printing is a significant innovation in small arms manufacturing. Of particular concern is the availability of this technology for criminal and terrorist activities. At the moment, weapon theft or purchase on the illicit market may require less effort than printing an effective, reliable weapon. But this could change. Once production costs decrease and quality increases, 3D printing is expected to become a lucrative alternative for small-scale illicit weapon manufacturing and sale. The printed parts of a 3D printed gun can be made using a standard FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) desktop printer. This technology works by extruding thin plastic lines, building layer upon layer on a build plate until you have a complete 3D model. In 2019, the US Army experimented with a 3D printed grenade launcher system called RAMBO (Rapid Additively Manufactured Ballistic Ordnance). Firing 40 mm 3D printed grenades, RAMBO is modeled on the army’s M203 grenade launcher and demonstrates how rapid, localized production could bridge or replace traditional supply chains.
