3D Printing Online for the Automotive industry

The innovation of online manufacturing has made it possible to revolutionize the production cycles of many sectors: the automotive sector has proven to be among the most advanced in this regard.

Technological innovation

Rapid prototyping

Push the accelerator in terms of design

Online manufacturing, especially 3D printing, have made it possible to quickly produce functional prototypes of their projects, being able to verify hypotheses of operation and quickly make design iterations. Statistically, additive manufacturing has sped up the design of a new product by 2.5 times.

Small and Medium Issues

Flexibility to produce only what you need

Online manufacturing, compared to traditional technologies, means it is possible to reduce the number of copies to manage the design breakeven: this means it is convenient to launch a production for even a few hundred copies, without having to bear fixed start-up costs.

Innovation in the automotive sector

The move to more flexible production processes has revolutionized the way many companies handle design, strategic and commercial aspects of production. Many aspects that once took months, today can be obtained in days or faster. Professionals most aware of innovation are in fact totally rethinking the production and operation mechanisms within their company.

 

New possibilities made available by technology

Additive manufacturing, but above all the revolutionary Multi Jet Fusion technology, have been real earthquakes in global production aspects. Today there are possibilities that up to yesterday were impracticable due to cost, efficiency or time issues. With these new technologies, today we can think of producing exactly what we need and how we need it: the possibility of creating repair parts or spare parts, but also the possibility of starting the production of customised parts, not having to incur start-up costs. There is also the advantage of not having to meet as many design constraints, being able to create complex geometries, concatenated objects and multipart objects
