Metal additive manufacturing in the automotive sector stands out for allowing weight reduction of components through topological optimization and manufacturing unique, customized and precise parts, with special relevance for the competitive sports segment.
The possibility of producing individual parts without tooling costs allows the replacement of discontinued components, namely for classic cars.
In the product engineering and development phase, we produce prototypes for functional tests, including thin metal components that will be mass produced by other processes such as stamping, without the initial tooling cost.
Other possible applications of this technology in this sector: heat exchangers, spare parts, jigs, and templates.
Most used materials in the automotive sector:
– Stainless steel
– Tool steel
At Hypermetal we also offer heat treatment solutions for dimensional stabilization and hardening.
