The automotive and supplier industries greatly benefit from additive manufacturing processes, since faster product development cycles can dramatically shorten time to market, and design iterations can be carried out on screen without tools. Today, numerous automotive OEMs use voxeljet's printing systems, its on-demand printing service or a combination of the two. For example, to optimize tools and molds before they are actually produced—building them in batch sizes of one and forming an accurate fit, thanks to 3D printing technology.
A wide range of parts is possible, ranging from cylinder heads, turbochargers and intake manifolds to complete engine blocks, drive and engine components.
voxeljet supplies classic car aficionados with spare parts, finished individual parts for motor racing, and produces exclusive special series for automotive customers fast and cost-efficiently, due to rapid manufacturing.
