Automotive

Going from concept to car, together. 

Creating the perfect car doesn’t start with manufacturing parts, it starts with a concept. Taking that concept into serial production can take up to five years, and each stage from design to manufacturing is crucial to success. With our state-of-the-art software and services for Additive Manufacturing, your car is off to a flying start.

“The precision of the new fixture really surprised me. We can now achieve much tighter tolerances and expect reduced scrap/redo rates. Our workers on the line love it. The new jig is easier to handle and much lighter. They don’t have to worry about breaking it and the ergonomics are hugely improved. The guys don’t want the old fixture back!”

– Hannes Wauters, Equipment Engineer at Volvo Car Gent
