Application of Metallic 3D printing to automotive industry

On March 2019, the joint project IDAM held its meeting in Munich, which was intended to lead the way for furthering the use of AM processes in automotive series production. The project partners are eager to transfer metallic 3D printing into an industrialized and highly automated series process for the automotive industry.

By integrating metallic 3D printing into the conventional production lines of the automotive industry, IDAM's plans to be able to produce at least 50,000 components per year in mass production and over 10,000 individual and spare parts – at the highest quality and under extreme cost pressure – with the AM production lines in the near future. The IDAM project’s targets are looking to replace cost and time consuming processes, such as the production of molds, and to meet the desire for product customization at no extra cost.
