In the north of Germany, EOS, Daimler, and Premium Aerotec are developing a production line for additive manufacturing. Our affiliate portal MM Maschinenmarkt asked which challenges the three companies are facing in this project.
Audi is going to implement a successful in-house additive production. In the medium term, this process could lead not only to the construction of prototypes but also to the provision of spare parts in line with demand - at the expense of die casting?
In cooperation with EOS, the Ariane Group has succeeded in producing a thermally and mechanically highly durable injection head for the future consisting of only one single component. Compared to casting and machining the throughput time for additive production is heavily reduced.
