Next generation robotics can be applied to large 3D printing to enable rapid manufacturing any kind of geometric size, shape and construct. OS3D reduces costs by removing barriers to product development, avoidable waste and large-scale production.
3D PRINTING HAS REVOLUTIONAZED THE AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY
“… With 3D printing we can improve pipe support by printing single pipes where previously two were required. This not only reduces weight, but more interestingly, reduces production costs by up to 30%.” Peter Sander, Emerging Technologies and Concepts Manager, Airbus.
“JAGUAR C-X75: THE PERFECTS COMBINATION BETWEEN EFICIENCY AND DESIGN”
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, enables the creation of exclusive designs unique to the automotive industry. The creation of single-piece components and the usage of materials with amazing geometrical forms represents a new chapter in innovation and technological progress.
“VEHICLES GO ON A DIET”
Reducing vehicle weights by 50 kg reduces CO2 emission levels by 1 gram per kilometre per vehicle. ‘’Expect more use of aluminium and high-tensile steel, reinforced plastic and carbon fibre (CFRP).” Goldman Sachs reports on major trends for automotive industry future in the world.
REDUCING PRODUCTION COSTS
“The two main benefits of this technology are reduction of production costs by removing the need for material previously viewed as indispensable and reduction of waste generated.” The Economist.
“FUNCTION FOLLOWS THE FORM.” BAUHAUS PRINCIPLE
The target of more sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly cities is at odds with traditional building techniques. A fusion between new technologies and the construction sector is now necessary.
