Historically, the automotive industry was the first to see results by using rapid prototyping technologies in the development phase of the product. Once satisfied with the multiple benefits these technologies could give to product innovation, every area was consequently taken into account.
Our experience over the years has particularly concentrated on development and construction of prototypes for the internal components of vehicles and accessories. Some internal structures and accessories are made of plastic, thus during the stages of development, design and engineering, the use of rapid prototyping technologies are essential.
Many of our clients who operate in the lighting industry of automotives and motorcycles use transparent materials to test the “lighting effects” of the beams before moving on to its production, thus allowing to test the product for its optical illusion. Furthermore, we have occasionally had the opportunity to make lights for displays at exhibition events with replicas in silicone molds where the final effect is identical to the manufactured product.
Other than automotive lighting, we are experienced in car accessories such as locking systems, parts of the dashboard and gears, handles, virtually everything made of plastic. Stereolithography is widely used on the aesthetic parts, while aluminum is mainly used for the rest of the internal components and engine parts. Thus, solutions we can offer, are the production of milled parts with CNC mechanical processing or direct metal laser sintering(DMLS).
Production of all the above mentioned can be applied in the motorcycle and racing industry even though composite materials, titanium and carbonium are mainly used in the racing industry.
