Automobile manufacturers are faced with major challenges including energy efficiency and the reduction of CO2 emissions. Increased demands for customization result in the need for automotive manufacturers to embrace additive for low volume production.
Additive Manufacturing provides a new approach to the current challenges facing the automotive industry. It offers design freedom while allowing the creation of complex yet lightweight components.
Automotive additive manufacturing enables the production of components without the need for tools, thereby cutting development and production costs. The reproducible additive process results in parts that can be installed directly in serial production vehicles.
With additive, automobile manufacturers can increase the efficiency of their research and development, enabling them to get their vehicles to market quickly.
