Optimised Production Chain
RICOH’s Additive Manufacture capabilities with Polypropylene was used by Volkswagen Group Components to test prototype car parts in an end-use material. This provided results more comparable to the final injection mould than using other materials such as PA12. This allows VW process engineers to optimise the production chain significantly earlier than previously possible.
