New 2023 Apple Watch Ultra to Feature 3D Printed Parts [Report]

Posted July 14, 2023 at 8:48pm by iClarified
Apple is planning to use 3D printed parts in its next generation Apple Watch Ultra, according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

My latest survey indicates that Apple is actively adopting 3D printing technology, and it's expected that some of the titanium mechanical parts of the 2H23 new Apple Watch Ultra will be made by 3D printing.

Kuo notes that although 3D printed parts still have to go through the CNC process for back-end processes, they can improve the production time and reduce the production cost.


The supply chain for 3D printers needed to make mechanical parts includes IPG Photonics as the exclusive supplier of laser components, as well as, Farsoon and BLT.

If shipments go well, Kuo believes more Apple products will adopt 3D printing technology, which will help improve production cost and ESG performance in Apple's supply chain. The above-mentioned suppliers will also benefit from this new production trend.

LMFAO! People REALLY believe that lowering PRODUCTION costs will lower the RETAIL price? NO! It's to INCREASE PROFIT margins.
