Drive efficient process, from Tier 3 suppliers to OEMs

Improve manufacturing agility at every stage of the vehicle life-cycle with an agile platform for digital parts fabrication. The value of 3D printing in automotive is remarkably scalable — from single part suppliers to industry-leading OEMs, all can directly benefit from implementing Markforged 3D printers. Only Markforged can provide quality, durable materials of all types on a plug-and-play manufacturing platform.

Learn how RPG industries has used a Metal X System to 3D print replacement automotive parts from 3D scans.

Iterate Better

Empower engineers to make products that better meet customer requirements, with more iterations to refine concepts and tooling ahead of production. Integrate higher performing, more complex designs that you could not reasonably take before and continually innovate to ensure that you stay ahead of competitors.

Produce Better

Achieve a new high-water mark for factory uptime and labor/scrap reduction by getting production-critical parts on the line when they are needed. Build high performance tooling for lower cost, slashing spend while boosting throughput. Eliminate downtime risks and retooling issues by replacing “cardboard engineering” with robust 3D printed parts.

Service Better

Turn service into a competitive advantage by providing customers with unparalleled expediency and quality with distributed manufacturing. Utilize point-of-need fabrication to unlock drastically improved service experiences, faster repairs, and higher NPS.

“There are parts we would not have even thought about doing and there are parts that we would not have been able to afford to do. Now we never say ‘no, we can’t do it,’ we say ‘yes we can. We’ll print it.'”

Mark Statham, Production and Engineering Manager at Dunlop Systems and Components
