3D printings landfill converted to functional truck parts.
“Many companies are finding great uses for 3D printing technologies, but, together with HP, we’re the first to find a high-value application for waste powder that likely would have gone to landfill, transforming it into functional and durable auto parts.”
As said by Ford technical fellow, Sustainability, Dr. Deborah Mielewsk, “A key to achieving our sustainability goals and solving the broader problems of society is working with other like-minded companies – we can’t do it along with HP, we defined the waste problem, solved technical challenges and found a solution in less than one year, which is something in which we all take pride.”
