Divergent Technologies (Divergent 3D) has signed a letter of intent to purchase five pre-production next-generation AM systems from SLM Solutions, with the ultimate aim of manufacturing 3D printed components for hypercars.

 .

The two companies have been working under a Joint Development Partnership (JDP) since 2017 . That JDP involves the development of a “next-generation multi-laser machine” that can be used to fabricate metal automotive components and aerospace parts. Working towards that goal, Divergent has just agreed to purchase from SLM Solutions five “pre-production” machines that will be used for “factory integration and system bulletproofing.”

 .

Divergent’s vision is to change the car manufacturing landscape by fabricating printable automotive chassis and other metal structures at localized AM production centers. Over the last few years, the company has significantly heightened its reputation after creating functional 3D printed vehicles including the Blade supercar, once driven by Jay Leno . […]
