The organizations have been cooperating since as ahead of schedule as 2014 to rethink vehicle partsIn the converging universes of auto and added substance fabricating, French extravagance carmaker Bugatti and metal 3D printing organization SLM Solutions can be viewed as something of a fantastic group. The two organizations have been cooperating since as right on time as 2014 to update and streamline vehicle segments utilizing added substance fabricating. Indeed, Bugatti has become a significant illustration of how metal 3D printing can quicken modern advancement in the auto business.


Throughout the long term, Bugatti has utilized SLM Solutions' metal AM innovation to deliver a scope of useful parts for its games vehicles, including a brake caliper that is perceived as the biggest useful segment 3D printed from titanium. The amazing part, delivered from Ti6Al4V utilizing a SLM500 printer, was acknowledged in association with Fraunhofer IAPT (earlier Laser Zentrum Nord) and Bionic Production AG and performed outstandingly in tests.

Candid Götzke, Head of New Technologies at Bugatti, said of the brake caliper: "Verifying that metal parts supplied additively can adapt to outrageous strength, strength and temperature conditions at outrageous speeds of over 375 km / h with a slowing power of 1.35 g and braking circle temperatures up to 1,100 ° C. "The 3D printed caliper also showed an elasticity of 1250 N / mm2 and a material thickness greater than 99.7%.

Bugatti also overhauled a functional spoiler section for its vehicles using the SLM500 3D printer from SLM Solutions. This activity had several creative goals: to make a lighter section, a smarter one and a more useful one. The spoiler section, created with Fraunhofer IAPT, can be modified in stature and layout for optimal design and allows Bugatti's 1,500 hp vehicle to reach speeds of 400 km / h in 32.6 seconds and bring it back off in 9 seconds.

The initial segment delivered through the coordinated efforts of SLM Solutions and Bugatti in 2014/2015 was a biconically improved front hub differential housing part. This part was produced by Audi AG at its offices in Ingolstadt and Györ on SLM280 3D printers to reflect on the variables affecting the printing of similar parts in two unique areas.


After five years and the Bugatti-SLM organization shows no sign of slowing down. At Form next 2018 in Frankfurt, SLM Solutions stepped up its coordinated effort with auxiliary Volkswagen by displaying eight Bugatti W16 chamber head covers that were created in a solitary print job using its SLM800.
