3D PRINT KNUCKLE
A Knuckle produced by additive manufacturing
The development of additive manufacturing technologies is an important advance in the industry and paves the way for new designs. Additive manufacturing offers great potential for simplifying parts, reducing their weight and improving their reliability.
The objective of the Print Knuckle project is to use additive manufacturing to produce a wheel rotation axle (knuckle) for a car. This solution optimises development and prototype manufacturing times.
Our design offices have been doing R&D work on 3D PRINT KNUCKLE in order to take into account the constraints of additive manufacturing right from the design phase. In order to achieve the desired goal of weight reduction, our teams have used digital tools specifically designed for structural optimisation.
