3DPD’s expertise lies not only in the development of required prototypes, but also in recommending the best technology and engineering processes for satisfactory results. Engine components like cylinder heads, are conventionally manufactured by a casting process. This poses a lot of challenges when it comes to developing and testing new designs, as it involves scaling down the casting process and is not economical. Hence, 3DPD experts – when confronted with this task -manufactured the cylinder head using the Additive Manufacturing – SLM process. A typical cylinder head design has various intricate features that needs handling in a very careful manner such that the overall engine performance is not compromised. Using the additive Manufacturing process to meet these objectives, is no doubt an achievement worthy of mention.
3DPD was tasked with developing the Instrument Panel Assembly during the development stages for one of the top car manufacturer for their car interiors. This was a big challenge in itself. Working with multiple components in various materials to meet the functional requirement of each part, was a feat that 3DPD managed to achieve with great excellence. The assembly itself was complicated, as there were many interior components. To have the assembly to fit all the different components seamlessly, we had to conduct multiple rounds of fitment checks before we convinced ourselves internally, that it will exceed client expectations.
3DPD deploys Precision Machining process for creating both large and small parts to meet strict manufacturing guidelines, product specifications and critical tolerances. This process also helps in operational efficiency, improved speed, lower production costs and reduced risk factors. While developing the Truck Engine Model, 3DPD actually worked in a 1:1 scale, using Precision Machining in ABS and Acrylic. Post machining, external surfaces were treated before painting and the final prototype was provided with a metallic finish- hard to distinguish from the actual component!
