Additive Manufacturing is now commonplace in the Automotive industry with many large vehicle manufacturers utilising 3D printing technology for polymer components.
From high volume, serial road car production, to bespoke, low volume hyper-car production and everything in between, the number of printed parts now being used in automotive applications is increasing rapidly.
This is because AM technologies offer many benefits over traditional methods of polymer manufacturing, such as greater design freedom, customisation, enhanced mechanical performance, shorter time to market as well as cost and weight reduction, to name but a few.
Prototal UK is highly experienced in this sector and is well known for its ability to provide production components for the automotive industry both in the UK and internationally.
Additionally, thanks to our extensive quality capabilities, we offer a full PPAP service for Automotive applications and across a wide range of our materials.
Projects we have worked on to date have required hundreds of polymer AM components per vehicle, spanning from cable saddles to interior cockpit components such as air registers and wing mirrors.
With our extensive knowledge of automotive applications and finishing expertise, we are industry leaders in enabling the production of some of the most advanced hyper-cars in the world using polymer AM.
