Automotive

The automotive industry has become an increasingly complex and high tech industry. Years ago a typical car or truck model would last five to seven years with only some minor changes. In today’s market, many vehicle models are completely redesigned in as few as three years with minor model changes every two years.

This means must auto manufacturers have to be able to solve complex problems quickly and correctly. Rapid prototyping, additive manufacturing, 3D scanning and inspection solutions play a key role.
