Volkswagen is promoting the use of innovative 3D printers in car production. For the first time, the latest process - so-called binder jetting - has now been used in parts production at the main plant in Wolfsburg. If a component is built up layer by layer from metallic powder with conventional 3D printing by a laser, this is done by an adhesive in the binder jetting process. The resulting component is then heated and shaped into a metallic part. The binder jetting process reduces costs and increases productivity - for example, the parts are only half as heavy as with sheet steel. Volkswagen is currently the only car manufacturer to implement the entire production process for this 3D printing technology. "We are consistently pushing ahead with our future topics - even in the persistently difficult environment of the corona pandemic", says Christian Vollmer, Member of the Board of Management for Production and Logistics at Volkswagen Passenger Cars and make it ready for use in series production.
