Ford uses HP to pioneer 3D printed car parts



Ford announced that it has taken another step towards its goal of making cars with a completely wasteless technology. Some of the parts for Ford cars are already being 3D printed on more than sixty 3D printers purchased from HP. The advantage of this technology is the small amount of waste. However, there is still waste. We worked with HP to develop a technology for their reuse. The waste is recycled, granulated and used for injection molding.

The partners say this is the first time this technology has been used in the automotive industry. It is used to manufacture fuel line clips for F-250 pickups. Interestingly, the new retainers are 7% lighter and 10% cheaper than those made using traditional technology. At the same time, there was no need to compromise on durability, and the chemical resistance even increased. The automaker is already exploring the possibility of expanding the scope of the development.
