Within the framework of the Photonic Process Chains funding initiative by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), several partners two research institutes and five companies, to be exact are focusing on 3D printing in the automotive industry. The Integration of Additive Manufacturing Processes in Automobile Series Production AutoAdd research project is coordinated by Daimler AG, and its findings show that by holistically integrating the metallic laser powder bed fusion process (LPBF), also known as SLM and DMLS, developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) into automotive series production, unit costs can go way down. The BMBF has been working on several projects in order to promote the intelligent linking of photon-based manufacturing processes, like metal 3D printing, as a means to produce complex or individualized products. Its aim is to create flexible, conceptual hybrid manufacturing designs, which can then be used for production purposes. […]
