D2M Solutions is Unique

IN THE MIDDLE EAST REGION IN OFFERING END-TO-END DESIGN TO MANUFACTURING SOLUTIONS

INTRODUCTION

AUTOMOTIVE & TRANSPORTATION
D2M Solutions the leading 3D Printer Supplier in UAE, Saudi Arabia and Middle East region providing 3D Printing Solution in many industries since, the automotive industry has become truly global in the last 20 years with companies designing in one country, assembling in another and sourcing parts and components internationally the cost of producing new products has grown through the need for industry compliance for safety and quality issues demanding extensive testing of products prior to production. The need to satisfy environmental standards has also increased and manufacturers need to take into consideration power and performance of vehicles to keep producing products desired by the consumer.
With such demanding requirements to stay competitive, companies are looking into ways to reduce their costs by implementing industry best practices, latest technologies and innovative ways of designing and manufacturing automotive parts and components. New materials testing and replacing certain metal parts with plastic are trends in the automotive sector in order to enhance performance and safety and reduce costs.

The product lifecycle needs to be managed through a PLM system in order to control all the data, processes and documents related to the final automotive product and its aftersales-life and implementation of this technology is also becoming an essential within the automotive feeder industries. With PLM from Dassault Systemes, comes the ability to create products within a 3D lifelike environment with the digital mock-up, (design, prototyping, analysis, simulation, manufacturing and assembly), providing unprecedented visualization, helping to eliminate errors, reduce overall production costs and reach important deadlines.

Leading PLM company, Dassault Systemes has solutions dedicated to the specific needs of the automotive and transportation sectors. Dassault Systemes PLM solutions have been developed in close collaboration with the industry, so that companies implementing PLM can be sure that they are gaining a very powerful aid towards business processes and production excellence under one integrated platform.

New trends in automotive part production

Stratasys technology has been used in the automotive manufacturing industry for more than twenty years. Automotive design and manufacturing engineers use FDM technology for modelling, prototyping, and recently in manufacturing end use automotive parts. Automotive and transportation companies have been at the forefront in employing rapid prototyping for form, fit and functional testing of parts – including very large parts such as the instrument tableau and whole exhaust fittings. Direct digital manufacturing is being utilized to produce parts for auto interiors, customized jigs and fixtures and fabrication and assembly tools. Quality control and assurance using 3D laser scanning are performed throughout the product design and manufacturing process to ensure the highest possible standards of production.

Check on the links to see how leading companies are finding completely new ways of rapidly designing and manufacturing automotive products with innovative technologies.

ON DEMAND PARTS – AUTOMOTIVE (AFTERMARKET)
THE NEEDS OF THE INDUSTRY

The automotive aftermarket industry faces the challenge of being able to provide its customers with tailored solutions to fit every individual taste. Ordinarily this would be very costly for the end user, since traditional production methods are lengthy and this adds to the cost of the final product.

THE SOLUTION

Part finishing

The printed parts can be painted, electroplated or finished using hydrographic film transfer for a variety of aesthetically pleasing and certified results. We have even seen examples of parts covered in leather for a finished result. The finishing process does not vary significantly for 3d printed parts versus parts produced using traditional methods, so the process is easily adopted by engineering and fabrication crews.


3D printing of the components in durable thermoplastic material and/or production of sheet metal tooling and composite tooling.

The 3d printing of interior components has started to make its way into the OEM productions cycle, with examples such Lamborghini using a variety of printed parts on the final production vehicle.

Additionally, the durability of the thermoplastic materials allows producers to print sheet metal tooling but also composite tooling for the production of extremely complex carbon fiber parts.


3D Scanner for the quick acquisition of the 3D geometry of parts/vehicles.

By utilizing the latest in handheld 3D scanning technology, ground crews can quickly and easily capture the complete geometry of interior components. This can later be sent to engineering departments for modeling in CAD software, alterations or developments of the original design.
