With the desire to improve the circularity of large format additive manufacturing (LFAM), SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, and Local Motors, a next-generation vehicle manufacturer, completed a joint study on the feasibility of recycling scrap thermoplastic parts and shavings from the 3D printing process.

• New Accura® Composite PIV material enables more efficient part production, more accurate and higher resolution Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) testing data

• New material alongside 3D Systems’ technology and application expertise enabling Alpine F1 Team to continue to advance aerodynamic track performance

A novel cooling system in the ethec city electric motorcycle ensures a longer service life for the battery cells. In order to introduce the students to manufacturing processes that can be used for series production outside of prototype manufacturing, voxeljet produced the mold for the innovative battery housing of the prototype using the binder jetting process.

GENERA has joined Henkel's open materials platform to offer production-scale additive manufacturing solutions. The two companies are working together on their respective focus areas to enable a new level of production for the automotive and healthcare industries. By combining GENERA's expertise in 3D printing and software development with Henkel's innovative material development, the two companies aim to generate new applications for DLP printing in the automotive and other industries.

Not only for the production of optimized lightweight housings for electric motors, the British company Brooks Crownhill Limited (BCP) relies on 3D printing systems from voxeljet. For a lot of automotive parts, BCP counts on prototypes produced using 3D sand printing well before they are ready for series production. The advantage: the ability to design highly complex parts without having to keep expensive tools on hand. Plus, with the right approach completely new designs emerge, as additive manufacturing offers unique design possibilities. The reason for this is that additive manufacturing allows end users to thoroughly inspect and extensively test the newly designed components before the production tools are manufactured. This saves a massive amount of time and money.

In the classic car sector, more and more spare parts are being manufactured without tools using modern measuring technology in combination with 3D printing. Our “Binder Jetting” processes offer the decisive economic advantages. This is because conventional production – especially of individual parts – often takes too long and causes high costs.

voxeljet 3D printing technology for production cast parts for electric-mobility. As key suppliers of the car industry, many foundries are under threat due to the current growth in e-mobility. The reason is, that the demand for castings for an electrically powered vehicle is significantly lower than for a conventional combustion engine.
