Selective Laser Melting Produces Safer Automotive Components, Minimizes Waste

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
NOTTINGHAM, England, Jan. 23, 2017 — Using selective laser melting (SLM), engineers are creating lightweight automotive components that boost vehicle fuel efficiency, cut noise and lessen CO2 emissions. Engineers at The University of Nottingham in England have developed the new additive manufacturing process as part of the Functional Lattices for Automotive Components (FLAC) project; the aim is to achieve significant weight reductions in new vehicle components. This is a triply periodic minimal surface lattice structure, which are a focus of the FLAC project. This type of lattice structure is the type of specimen...Read full article
