The transportation industry is one of the early pioneers in metal additive manufacturing technology. Currently, metal additive manufacturing is widely used in the production of components for mobile vehicles, especially in the manufacturing of parts for sports cars. Examples include titanium metal topology-optimized brake calipers and car spoiler support frames and wheels, which aim to reduce weight, enhance structural strength, improve efficiency, and overcome the limitations of traditional processes.
In addition to automobiles, motorcycles and bicycles also utilize this technology to create integrated and lightweight frames, strengthening the overall structure of the vehicles. Furthermore, this technology can also be applied to the cooling systems of electric vehicle motors, addressing the issue of motor overheating and thereby improving product performance.
