Workshop: Circularity & Additive Manufacturing for automotive industry

Date: Friday 22nd of September 2023
Time: 13:00 - 17:00
Location: Brainport Industries Campus


Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, offers several advantages to the automotive industry, particularly in relation to sustainability.

This technology not only allows for more flexible and innovative design approaches where designers can create parts with integrated functionalities, combining multiple components into a single unit, but it also often reduces the number of features required in a vehicle, simplifying assembly and disassembly processes, ultimately making end-of-life recycling and remanufacturing easier.

Additive manufacturing aligns well with circular economy principles by promoting recycling and reusing materials. Many 3D printing technologies also allow for using recycled or bio-based materials, further reducing the environmental impact of automotive production.

In order to increase the awareness, RAI Automotive Industry NL and Brainport Eindhoven are organizing a workshop on 22nd of September 2023 at the Brainport Industries Campus with specialist presentations, a BIC facility tour including visits to several AM companies and at the end of the program we will conclude with networking drinks.
