In this 3D Metal Printing exclusive, HP’s Ramon Pastor, global head and general manager of 3D metals, explains that the automotive industry “is in the midst of a massive transformation to a new generation of electric and autonomous vehicles, with some of the most innovative business leaders on the planet playing a substantial role in this transformation. And, many of them have come to recognize how valuable additive and digital manufacturing can be in enabling their new visions.
“At the same time,” Pastor continues, “new technologies allow OEMs to meet the demands of a consumer market increasingly seeking personalization and sustainability. As these trends continue to accelerate in 2022, I expect to see 3D printing gain a larger foothold in the auto industry.”
Read here more of Pastor’s thoughts, including the role that additive manufacturing (AM) will play in the EV evolution.
