Listed below, you will find the main benefits of using 3D printers to produce Automobile Press Parts . The overall benefits include reduced weight, reduced material loss, the ability to create custom 3D printed automotive parts, easy replacement of spare parts, considerable ROI and overall savings in production time.
Compared to traditional manufacturing processes, 3D printing makes parts lighter. If the car is lighter, it will consume less fuel, making the car greener and more cost-effective. Volkswagen, a major car company, has received the memo and has completely redesigned and enhanced its A-pillar window glass support. It is now 74% lighter than the original part. With the help of implementing lattices in 3D files, lighter structures can be made. Click here to learn more about the lattice.
Reduce material loss
3D printing uses only the amount of material needed to make automotive parts without wasting extra material. Excess material is always used for other projects. With subtractive manufacturing, you waste material, which makes it a less sustainable and less expensive manufacturing method.
Create custom car parts
Car enthusiasts want to create a unique car with unique additional design features through 3D printing. In the 3D printed car parts example below, you can find real 3D printed batch customization projects for BMW car parts.
Easy replacement of spare parts
Some automotive parts should be manufactured in such a way that they can be easily re-manufactured if the part is damaged, for example, by bumps. Otherwise, it is difficult to find alternatives, especially for older car models. However, by combining 3D scanning, 3D modeling, and additive manufacturing, it is possible to produce rare automotive parts.
