3d Printing in the Automotive Industry

Driving Automotive Manufacturing Forward With Increased Agility and Innovation

Traditional manufacturing processes and early additive manufacturing machines have come up short for the automotive industry. Essentium is building toward a full-factory solution that will streamline tooling and provide a quick-turn, in-house capability set to automotive manufacturers. As part of this full-stack solution, the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) 3D Printing Platform is an on-demand manufacturing tool alternative to quickly produce jigs, fixtures, and tools right on the factory floor.

HIGH SPEED EXTRUSION FOR AUTOMOTIVE

Utilizing a non-slip, high-torque extrusion system and all linear servo motors, the HSE 3D Printing Platform can reach print speeds of up to 500 mm/s. In demanding environments like the automotive factory floor, Essentium systems give manufacturers the agility to design, prototype, and produce end-use parts in a matter of days.

Additionally, Essentium has the best and broadest materials portfolio in the industry that includes non-marring, ESD-safe, and nylon materials that are ideally suited for mold tooling, jigs and fixtures, end-use parts, and other important applications within the automotive industry.
