3D printing technology has revolutionized the manufacturing industry, offering greater accessibility and flexibility in the production of parts. But can 3D printed parts weld as well as forged parts? The short answer is yes, depending on the type of material being used and the type of welding process. 3D printed parts can be welded just like any other type of part, but the welding process needs to be adapted to the material and the specific part being welded. Furthermore, 3D printed parts are often lighter than forged parts, allowing for greater maneuverability when welding. While there may be some differences between the welds of 3D printed parts and forged parts, with the right welding process, 3D printed parts weld just as well as their forged counterparts.
