The adoption of metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) throughout many industries – aerospace, medical, prototyping – has seen rapid advancement in the last months and years. Automotive applications for high-performance or racing vehicles can be included in those categories, but several factors have prevented the wider proliferation of metal AM to high-volume or consumer automotive applications. This talk will focus on the material considerations that affect the ability to use metal AM at an automotive scale, highlighting the need for development of new materials and process paths that improve throughput while maintaining high density and fatigue properties. These materials and processes might be considered a specialization of the metal AM market to allow greater adoption by the automotive sector.
