3D printing and the auto industry published by Automotive World

03 November, 2016

In this Automotive World report, OEMs, suppliers and other leading stakeholders provide insight into how the technology could be used in vehicle production. Suppliers are keen, vehicle manufacturers are cautiously optimistic, and toolmakers sense an opportunity: 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is coming to the automotive industry. One of the quates from this report is from Daan Kersten, Co-Founder/CEO of Additive Industries: "Parts made with our technology fall within much smaller tolerance bandwidths. It also achieves tenfold productivity, which, depending on the part being made, typically results in a cost-per-part reduction of 40% to 50%". To be able to read this full report, please click here.
