3D Printing Solutions for Mining Industry
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a fast and cost-effective technology that aids in product and industrial design. The mining industry is one such space which is gradually opening its doors to the many benefits of 3D printing.
3D Printing Technology for Mining Industry
3D printing applications in mining are gradually gaining in popularity. We explore how.
Topographic Maps in 3D
It is crucial to construct topographic outlines of mining sites. Accuracy is the key as minesare made upof variable geometric patterns (e.g. tunnels, shafts etc.) It is challenging to accurately represent such intricacies on paper.

This is where 3D models of mining fields help to develop a better idea of the topographic and geological features in the area.
Replications and Customizations
3D scanning is an integral part of additive manufacturing that is at once cost-effective as well as less time-consuming.
Laser scanning, along with 3D printing facilitates replication of standard spare partsand mining tools, as required. The unique nature of 3D print technology allows for customizations in the design of such spare parts.
So, how does the process of 3D printing work for the mining industry?
3D Concept and Design: Create something that was not there before! Optimize designs of 3D printed rigs, for example, using existing designs or simply create a new one. Simply upload a DAE, OBJ, STL, WRL,3MF file onto the Zeal online portal with your design specifications (e.g. colour, textures etc.)
3D Printer: Once the 3D CAD file has been uploaded, Zeal will use its advanced 3D printers, depending on specific project requirement.
3D Printed Product: Get your pristine 3D printed mining part with unmatched accuracy and superior quality.
Benefits of 3D Printing in Mining Industry
Cost-effective Solution: Primarily, 3D printing in mining is seen as an extremely cost-effective solution. Cost of 3D printed mining parts has been shown to be as much as 90% less than traditionally manufactured parts.
Less Time-consuming Solution: Equally significant is the aspect of rapid manufacturing for mining that 3D print technology offers. This is changing the face of repair and maintenance in the mining industry as spare parts or replacements parts for worn out or defective components can be produced on site, instead of waiting for the original manufacturer to redesign it altogether!
Eco-friendly: 3D printing mining parts has proved to be extremely beneficial to the environment as the components produced in the process are energy efficient.

Improved Supply Chain Management: The faster turnaround time through 3D printing enables mining companies to better manage supply chains. As spare parts get manufactured in-house or on-site, delivery lead times are shortened.
