Automotive Industry & 3D printing

A series of purchasing meetings for the automotive industry is taking place in Central and Eastern Europe. One of the most important is Automotive CEE Day, organized in Opole by Automotive Suppliers, in which the Fibometry team also participates.

Automotive CEE Day is a B2B meeting platform for companies in the automotive sector. It is not only a chance to make business contacts and find new partners, but also a chance to show how 3D printing can be used in the automotive industry.

3D printing is very important to the automotive Industry. It allows, among other things, the prototyping of automotive components in a fast, precise and cost-effective manner. Parts produced in this way can then be tested and refined before mass production begins.

The best 3D printing technologies for the automotive industry are Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Multi Jet Fusion (MJF). SLS is a method that utilizes a laser to sinter fine polymer powder based on predetermined cross-sections, resulting in the creation of durable parts up to 600 mm in size. On the other hand, MJF employs multiple print heads to apply carefully chosen liquid agents, which then darken the predetermined cross-sections. High-efficiency lamps are used to sinter the material layer by layer, allowing for the production of parts of equal quality to those made using SLS.

3D printing is important in the automotive industry due to its capability for rapid prototyping, which accelerates the development processes for new vehicles and components. Additionally, 3D printing enables the customization of components and facilitates short-run production, which is crucial for adapting to specific market demands. By utilizing professional 3D printing technologies, the automotive industry can enhance its innovation, decrease costs, and reduce the time required to implement new solutions.
