Mitsubishi Using 5D Printing to Create Components Stronger Than 3D Printed Parts
  • Mitsubishi’s 5D Printing turns out Stuff that is Tougher than 3D Printed Objects

Mitsubishi’s 5D printing turns out stuff that is apparently tougher than 3D printed objects. This has been established as a solid fact.

The Mitsubishi Corporation has used 5D printing to create materials that are many times stronger than 3D printed stuff. The Japanese company has been involved in many things from television sets to fighter planes.

It basically deals in electronic equipment. This company is extant virtually all around the global village. Yet the most exciting research it engages in is taking place in the USA. 

All the time new equipment and fancy innovative objects of interest are being churned out by the lab owned by Mitsubishi. Mitsubishi has whetted its beak in matters of 3D printing. It is not just electronic products it is concerned with either.

The latest venture has to do with rocket parts. Now it is using a special technique known as five-axis additive manufacturing. This involves the 3D printing of an object that can rock to and fro on two axes. The total number of axes amounts to five in this process. 

Objects are thus printed which have a totally different internal structure, according to It is not a layer upon successive layer process. This method has its advantages.

A small plastic pressure cap was printed. When five axis printing was applied, it had a stronger basis. The 5D printed pressure cap was a far cry from its 3D printed cousin. The former can resist much more pressure than the latter.

There is thus both an increase in tensile strength and a reduction in the amount of material that was used. This was a brand new experience for Mitsubishi. 5D printing is something from which the multinational corporation can benefit immensely.
