Large 3D printing in automotive applications
The automotive industry has always been a pioneer in new applications of 3D printing technology.
Large automakers, auto parts industries, vehicle customization seek to challenge equipment manufacturers every day in search of solutions for this complex market.
High performance filaments are applied in the manufacture of prototypes for the replacement of metal parts. Among its main features are: high mechanical resistance and withstand high temperatures.
Professional 3D printers also make a difference. They allow the creation of highly accurate models made in a wide range of materials, such as ABS, PLA, Nylon, Polycarbonate, PEEK, ULTEM (PEI) among many others.
UP3D offers excellent equipment options, such as Raise3D, Tiertime and Intamsys 3D printers. Several automotive companies already make use of this technology for the printing of prototypes, products and parts that assist maintenance.
