Strengthen your automotive manufacturing processes
Additive technology is truly becoming an important part of automotive supply chains. From prototyping to mass production of engine, transmission, and chassis components, the ready are evaluating how additive can drive greater returns on investment.
HRE Wheels is revolutionizing the wheel with additive manufacturing. The HRE3D+ is the result of an intensive design collaboration between HRE Wheels and GE Additive's AddWorks team. The two companies worked together to push the boundaries of what is possible to create the first 3D-printed titanium automotive wheel.
- Revolutionary method of custom wheel fabrication
- Printed in five separate spoke sections
- 50 kg forging reduced to 10 kg (80% less waste) with Arcam EBM technology
- Post-processing: Five-hour machine time reduced to 15 mins
