Additive Industries wins TCT Transport Application Award at prestigious 3D printing and additive manufacturing event TCT 3Sixty

09 June, 2022

Additive Industries has been awarded the TCT Transport Application Award at the annual TCT 3Sixty, UK's most influential 3D printing and additive manufacturing event. Additive Industries received the award for its collaboration with Volkswagen on a tooling nozzle for the Volkswagen Tiguan. Volkswagen deployed Additive Industries’ MetalFAB metal 3D printing system to achieve a 650% cost reduction in the manufacture of a tooling nozzle used for the automated deposition of a rope in the chassis flange of the VW Tiguan. This part, which helps prevent flange corrosion, was manufactured in a single piece in 316L stainless steel. Previously, the component was made up of two pieces and produced in a more expensive Ti-alloy. This winning case can be found here.
