3D Printing for the Automotive Industry

Serially Produced Vehicles and Motor Sports

What Drives Manufacturers in the Automotive Industry

The advent of the automotive age was the very definition of disruption, suddenly, muscle power was no longer the only way to achieve locomotion, it could also be motorized. The automotive revolution happened over a century ago, but today the industry is facing a wave of new possibilities and challenges.

Customer Demands, Cost Pressure & Asymmetric Competition

Customers value sustainability. This includes e-mobility, as well as the desire for more efficient engines and to improve vehicle service life, which is now longer today. Spare parts availability is also high on the agenda.

Series Customizing

More and more customers are interested in customization and the objective of series customizing is to facilitate the designing of high-quality details such as decorative interior elements.

Cost pressure is rising, and every detail counts. This puts the focus on one of the key partners of the automotive industry – the tooling industry, which needs to leverage potential in terms of part quality, functional integration, production speed and tool stability.

Production Process

Competition is expanding. Digitalization and mobility are opening up new business models for newcomers. This makes it all the more important to modernize production processes by taking advantage of state-of-the-art technologies.

Additive Manufacturing for Vehicle Parts
Automotive Production With EOS 3D Printing Solutions

Our projects show how customers from the automotive industry have successfully broken new ground with EOS solutions. Our solution chains for industrial 3D printing allow potential to be leveraged and products to be reimagined where classical technologies could not meet this need. Together with well-known companies from the vehicle manufacturing and motor sports sectors, we tackle a wide variety of challenges with great success for our customers.

"We believe EOS displays the maturity and the professionalism which we try to betray ourselves. We are not just a racing team, we are an engineering company. All our products, all our race cars are based on sound engineering decisions and we can see this reflected in EOS."
