In recent years, the established area of application for additive-manufactured components made of metal and polymer materials has expanded from industries such as aerospace, which are characterized by individual or small series production, to industries such as automotive industry, which are characterized by large series production. The technology is increasingly being utilized in the field of sports and super sports cars in particular, with the result that profitable yearly unit numbers in the region of 5,000 are being achieved in automotive engineering. This is due, on the one hand, to clever design trimmed for cost optimization and the associated outstanding lightweight construction potential, but also to the increasing stabilization and optimization of production processes. Current developments provide an insight into the potential that can be exploited in the automotive sector.

This presentation will show, on the basis of examples and projects, how the challenges of technology can be tackled in order to achieve profitable series production in the automotive industry.

How the rail industry benefits from Additive Manufacturing

André Bialoscek | Bombardier Transportation

After graduating his Master of Enginnering in mechanical engineering and renewable energy studies in Berlin, André Bialoscek has been working for Bombardier Transportation in various positions and functions since 2011.

Since 2018 he is Head of Vehicle Physical Integration as part of the New Vehicle Construction branch at Bombardier’s site in Hennigsdorf and the main tasks is delivering final products to clients. The responsibility includes cab-interior and exterior rail parts as well as electrical and piping integration to be able to provide the best possible final vehicle to customers.

Based on that and to speed up the production of rail parts, specifically customized parts he is working with Additive Manufacturing for new trains, service and obsolescence topics.

Resin for 3D printers is eager to develop a tough and impact resistant resin for use in orthodontic aligners and final products. The new photosensitive resin has succeeded in producing a tough resin by devising the photoreaction with the monomer and widening the molecular weight distribution even in the photoreaction. At the same time, by introducing not only hard rigid monomers but also soft monomers as the monomers used for the resin, it was possible to design a resin resistant to impact. Therefore, it was possible to design a resin that was strong in toughness and impact and started to be applied to aligners and final products.

In terms of biocompatibility for use as an aligner, each of the monomer materials used in this study uses materials that are safe for oral toxicity as one of the chemically safe indicators. It is increase biocompatibility (lower oral toxicity) by polymerization.
This time, I will explain the toughness, impact resistance and biocompatibility of this new resin from a chemical standpoint.
