3D Printing Models in the automotive industry ready to go

Market research firm SmarTech published a report that, 3D Printing Models in the automotive industry ready to go, and the prospects are bright. The report is titled "Additive Manufacturing Opportunities in the Automotive Industry: A Ten-Year Forecast". According to the report's forecast, by 2019, the 3D Printing Models in the automotive sector will generate a total of $ 1.1 billion in global sales.

There are several key trends that drive car manufacturers to scale up for 3D Printing Modelss, for example, where the 3D parts of the 3D graphics model are growing, using 3D print models to create conceptual models for adaptation and final inspection, design verification, and even Create functional components that can be used for vehicle and engine testing.

In fact, leading automotive manufacturers have used a variety of molds, fixtures, etc. for use in assembly and manufacturing processes using the increased material manufacturing and 3D Printing Modelss. 3D Printing Models in the shape of the review, design verification, complex structural parts, multi-material composite parts, lightweight structural parts, custom special tooling, after-sales personalized replacement parts and other applications gradually dominated. These leading car manufacturers have developed their own characteristics of the 3D Printing Models application model. Applications including SLS, FDM, 3DP, PolyJet, SLM, SLA in automotive applications include design and functional verification from interior to tire, air duct, lid, pneumatic model, cylinder block, cylinder head, fuel system, housing The These uses mark the future of 3D Printing Models technology to enter or enter a higher value-added manufacturing process, but also marks the car manufacturers at any time it is possible to use 3D Printing Models technology for the direct manufacture of the final use of automotive parts.

China Automotive Industry Association (CAAM) is expected by 2020, China's auto market share of the world's auto market will be close to 1/3. The world's leading car brands are operating in China, including General Motors, Ford and Land Rover will be their Asian headquarters in China. GM, Volkswagen and Honda have R & D centers in China. Parts manufacturers Borg Warner, ZF, Eaton also has a research and development center in China or Asia headquarters. The Chinese government supports and invests the automotive industry as a strategic industry. And in the government special funds to give the automotive industry in technological innovation, upgrading, research and development, clean energy vehicles and lightweight components to give strong support. With the deepening of the combination of manufacturing and automotive applications, the development of China's auto industry will also bring a huge application space for the 3D Printing Models industry.
