Today sees the release of a fresh report from Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known source of Apple-related rumors and insider knowledge. This time, the analyst supports earlier speculations that said Apple will launch a successor to the original Apple Watch Ultra later this year.

According to reports, Apple is aggressively using 3D printing technology and will do so for “some of the titanium mechanical parts” of the next Watch Ultra. Even while certain CNC operations will still be required for those parts, converting only a portion of their manufacturing to 3D printing would still result in shorter production times and lower prices, which is likely why Apple is doing it.

Farsoon and BLT are Apple’s sole 3D printer suppliers, according to Kuo, while IPG Photonics is the exclusive source for the necessary laser components. The firm is anticipated to use 3D printing for even more of its goods in the future if the introduction of the technology into the Apple Watch Ultra’s manufacture goes smoothly.
