On-Demand Webinars: Manufacturing & Prototyping

How Additive Manufacturing Can Increase Efficiency in EV Production


Additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing, acts as a catalyst, propelling the shift towards efficiency in electric vehicles (EVs), autonomous systems, and beyond. AM offers significant advances across EV production, enhancing vehicle systems like connectors and routing components, optimizing thermal management, and employing custom jigs and fixtures. This 60-minute Webinar will delve into the world of AM and its transformative impact on electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, and the next generation of mobility as well as explore how AM can supercharge component and system development, verification, and manufacturing processes.

Topics include:

  • Insights Into Transformation: Uncover how AM is transforming mobility.
  • Spotlight on Key Applications: Learn about real-world applications where AM shines.
  • Challenge Your Assumptions: Acquire insights into the technological advancements of additive manufacturing across printer hardware, software, and material capabilities.
  • Expert Perspective: Gain insights from an industry expert who calls both additive manufacturing and vehicle development his home.

An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
