Prima Additive for the automotive sector

Find out what we do for the automotive sector

The constant evolution of the automotive industry offers vast possibilities for the use of metal 3D printing. On the one hand, greater focus can be placed on innovation, since prototypes are made quickly, without the need for molds. On the other hand, additive manufacturing has the potential to revolutionize the supply chain, particularly regarding spare parts, which can be made on demand only when needed.

More generally, given the constant renewal of car manufacturers' product ranges, additive manufacturing allows parts to be modified and customised to update models from year to year.

In addition, common parts such as brackets or fasteners can be redesigned or consolidated into a single part, reducing moving parts and eliminating the need for subsequent assembly.


Rapid Innovation and Development

Metal AM accelerates the prototyping and development of automotive components, enabling faster innovation cycles and the realization of complex geometries that were previously impossible or prohibitively expensive with traditional manufacturing methods.


Weight Reduction for Efficiency

By optimizing part designs for weight reduction without compromising strength, metal AM contributes to more fuel-efficient and high-performance vehicles, essential for both conventional and electric vehicle markets.

Customization and On-Demand Manufacturing

Metal AM allows for the cost-effective customization of parts and enables on-demand manufacturing of replacement parts, reducing inventory costs and enhancing service responsiveness.
