Zoom ahead in the innovation race

Automotive manufacturers can accelerate the design, with innovative ideas brought to life through precise prototypes that can handle almost anything. Resilient parts can be built using FDM technology while aesthetic parts that require rubber-like or clear material with a smooth finish can benefit from Polyjet based 3D printing 3D printing. Through 3D printing, you can meet your need to increase fuel efficiency, optimize part count to weight ratio and reduce tooling costs.

Automotive manufacturers have till now used 3D printing technologies principally to support their prototyping activities. There is a recent shift in usage of 3D printing technology and it may well lead to manufacturers adopting it for end use automotive parts.

Major applications in the automotive prototypes parts are

  1. Using it to build concept models for fit and finish checks.

  2. Design verification and creation of functional parts used in test vehicles and engines.

Why 3D Printing for Automotive Industry?

      1.  Replace expensive SNC Production

      2.  Create better Assembly Tools

      3.  Test and Identify design Problems

In the news

Audi has replicated a fully 3D printed Grand Prix racer from a pre war era. The 1936 Auto Union Type C Car. Metal based 3D Printing has helped the German car makers to produce geometrically complex parts that serve the vehicle aesthetically and functionally.
