Ford is the North American company that has conducted the most practical research in AM industrialization, focusing primarily on polymer and composites. Ford’s AM activities are centered in its Advanced Manufacturing Center in Redford, Detroit.


The new facility, reportedly worth $45 million, houses all types of new technologies—from additive manufacturing to virtual reality, to collaborative robots—all aimed at bringing car manufacturing into the future. Altogether, the center now houses nearly 30 industrial-grade 3D printers from Stratasys, HP, Carbon, EOS, Desktop Metal and SLM Solutions. At this Center, Ford is 3D printing parts for the upcoming Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 sports car.
