Volkswagen plans to use new 3D printing process in vehicle production in the years ahead

Volkswagen is pressing ahead with the use of innovative 3D printers in car production. For the first time, the newest process – known as binder jetting – is being used to manufacture components at the company’s main plant in Wolfsburg, Germany.

The resulting metallic component is then heated and shaped.
