3dpbm Automotive AM Focus 2023 eBook
After a short break due to intense activity during Formnext and the Winter holidays, 3dpbm’s acclaimed AM Focus eBook series is back for 2023 and, like every year since we launched in 2020, the first issue of the year is dedicated to automotive additive manufacturing. Widespread additive mass production for mass market automotive remains mostly a long-term goal, however, some exciting production applications (and use cases) are already underway and, perhaps more even importantly, the use of AM in the automotive segment is booming for prototyping and tooling applications.
Additive applications in the automotive industry are constantly evolving and it can be a challenge to keep up with the latest developments, achievements and trends. In this eBook, our focus is the intersection between automotive and additive, and our aim is to bring you up to speed on the current state of the segment.
In this publication, we are excited to present an all-new, deep analysis of the largest vertical AM users in the automotive industry, from BMW to Ford, diving into production scales, applications and more. We also present an updated map of several key additive manufacturing companies that are (either technological or market) leaders in targeting the automotive segment. In particular, we feature several exclusive pieces, including a fascinating automotive case study from OECHSLER and TECHART and a deep dive into CRP Technology’s Windform applications for supercars. Plus other key players to keep a close eye on, from Airtech to Carbon, HP, Stratasys and many more.
Together with motorsports and AM expert Andrew Cunningham we also bring you a full reportage from all the additive manufacturing applications that have emerged for every single F1 team during the 2022 Formula 1 season – we tracked them all (just as the new season is about to start). This top motorsport segment is now fully embracing AM and there is much more to come.
To top it all don’t miss our exclusive one-to-one with GM additive specialist Brennon White about the Cadillac CELESTIQ, which integrates over 100 3D printed components; along with an insightful interview with Dr. Erhard Brandl, Head of the Audi Additive Manufacturing Center. Last, but certainly not least, a visit to Magway, the electric, zero-emissions delivery system developer.
It’s an absolutely jam-packed edition of our AM Focus eBook series and you don’t want to miss any of it!
