Driving Transportation Innovation with Additive Manufacturing

August 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Automotive is accelerating innovation to advance mobility by incorporating additive manufacturing into their product development and production strategies

Automotive manufacturers need to accelerate innovation to advance mobility. Innovation without productivity is unrealistic for most manufacturers, while productivity without innovation can lead to low margins and economic pressures to evolve. By incorporating additive manufacturing technology into their product development and production strategies, automotive manufacturers can combine high-value transformative applications that advance the science of AM with high levels of productivity, giving them the ability to produce innovative parts and products while maintaining higher margins. Automotive AM leaders will discuss:

  • AM application areas within a vehicle
  • Improving component functionality and consolidating parts with new materials and process capabilitie
  • Increasing productivity of model production

Examples shared will include a textured front bumper, tooling, and fluid flow/energy management systems. These applications will demonstrate how AM can:

  • Reduce weight/inertia of the drive shaft by 50%
  • Achieve 10x acceleration of product development projects
  • Cut costs by 58% for development of critical systems
