On the heels of its latest assertion with Ford, Carbon introduced its strategic partnership with Lamborghini, which’s using Carbon’s technology to manufacture its first manufacturing parts digitally. The two components are a new textured gas cap with the Urus label and a clip for an air duct. Both components are on Lamborghini’s Super SUV, the Urus version, which was first delivered in 2018.
“Through our extensive procurement research, we discovered that many of our car additives had been ideal applicants for digital manufacturing,” says Stefan Gramse, Chief Procurement Officer of Automobili Lamborghini S.P.A. “By partnering with Carbon, we are designing on the approach of production, which allows us to supply greater long-lasting products smarter, quicker, and more efficiently, while additionally extensively accelerating our time to marketplace. We are searching forward to a sustainable, a hit partnership with Carbon.”
Leveraging Carbon printers and DLS technology, Lamborghini, in near collaboration with Volkswagen’s Electronic Research Lab, represented via Nikolai Reimer, Senior Vice President and Executive Director, is remodeling most of the components in its automobile indoors, replicate assembly and accent components to supply mild-weight, long-lasting, quit-use components. Carbon’s durable Epoxy (EPX) 82 cloth is confirmed to resist the excessive pressures, temperature requirements, in addition to impact power, needed for such packages.
“Carbon’s virtual manufacturing answer empowers groups like Lamborghini with the freedom to layout and constructs higher merchandise on the way of manufacturing,” says Joseph DeSimone, CEO, and co-founder of Carbon. “The automotive enterprise shows big promise for the use of digital fabrication for manufacturing at scale, and our partnership with Lamborghini is a perfect example of the sort of innovation you could gain whilst you fuse layout, manufacturability, and engineering; all into one.”
Carbon will lead a workshop before Molding 2019 (March 19-21; Hyatt Regency Indianapolis) to help attendees reimagine parts and the subassemblies and final merchandise they devise. Head to the Molding 2019 internet site to learn greater.
