The cost-effective solutions we engineer for automotive manufacturers and their suppliers range from development parts on concept vehicles and evaluation prototypes, through to functional end-use components on short-run specialist sports cars and supercars.
Our materials have been subjected to stringent tests by a number of the UK’s high-end car manufacturers.
Graphite’s automotive customers really appreciate the rapid turnaround times provided when development parts are needed in a hurry. SLA materials can create finely detailed parts which can be painted or plated to mimic many automotive finishes.
Graphite’s SLS materials build functional components, ideal for pre-production testing – and developments of these materials are now passing PPAP requirements with acceptance for production parts in the automotive supply chain. This has led to Graphite now supplying several automotive manufacturers with production parts for bespoke applications and low volume vehicles.
Graphite is working hard to win it’s first contract for a supplier of more mainstream vehicles at much higher quantities thanks to their new Multijet Fusion machine offering the complex parts at much quicker lead times.
