Cost cutting Peugeot Citroen intends to introduce 3D printing production line misao

Cut the cost of Peugeot Citroen intends to 3D printing into production line includes cooperation for vehicle production line Peugeot Citroen R & D 3D printing metal panel, in order to realize the lightweight vehicle structure, reduce the production cost. Peugeot Citroen group (PSA Peugeot Citroë N, hereinafter referred to as group) before 3D printing company and Losangeles Divergent signed a strategic cooperation agreement, reached in the metal printing and so on cooperation. A 3D printing Peugeot Citroen concept car strategic cooperation includes the production line for Peugeot Citroen R & D 3D printing metal cover, in order to achieve lightweight vehicle structure, reduce production costs. Group said that the partnership will effectively reduce the Peugeot Citroen’s vehicle and parts production costs. Application of 3D printing technology can significantly reduce the production scale of the factory, to reduce vehicle weight and reduce the complexity of the production, but also gives the design of our products add unlimited (ginseng, pictures, flexible space inquiry)." Peugeot Citroen group CEO (Tang ginseng, pictures, inquiry) Realism (Carlos Tavares) said in a statement. However, the group did not mention the impact of this cooperation on the number of jobs. Although from the aerospace industry to the medical device industry have been used 3D printing technology in the manufacture of metal parts and plastic parts of the experience, but because the automobile manufacturing process, higher demands for the degree of refinement, so in practice may be more complicated than expected. In addition, Ford has also been in the layout of 3D printing manufacturing technology. Divergent said it has developed a set of software and hardware platform with 3D printing technology, through which the platform can significantly optimize the vehicle design process, and can easily print out complex automotive parts. Peugeot Citroen during the Tang Weishi administration, has been significantly reduced production costs, while vehicle research and development outsourcing to a professional third party companies, such as R & D center is located in Morocco’s sub Engineering (Altran). In addition, the French engineering services group (French Engineering Services) last week also said it has purchased a certain stake in Divergent company Group. The group said that the cooperation will initially be located in France near Paris at Divergent’s Velizy research center of 3D printing and assembly trial, the next step will be to try to auto parts, the ultimate goal is to use this technology to print out the "full body structure".
