3D printing used in Volkswagen production

Posted on Updated on

According to Martin Goede, he is the Head of Technology Planning and Development at Volkswagen, “A complete vehicle won’t come out of a 3D printer any time soon. The goal is to integrate printed structural parts into the next vehicle generation. Over the long term, we expect to see continuous growth in lot sizes, component size and technical requirements – all the way up to components that are the size of soccer balls and are produced in lot sizes of more than 100,000 units per year.
Volkswagen has been using the process for more than 20 years now but not in mass production. In prototype construction, 3D printing has already proven itself to be a practical, effective solution. It would simply take too much work to make casting and press tools for components that are produced in small lot sizes”.
