Rethinking and redesigning : Upgrading an automotive tool with additive manufacturing

An advantage of additive manufacturing (AM) is its design flexibility, allowing us to rethink existing processes in new ways. One example is an aluminum lamination tool used to adhere materials to car interiors. AM optimized the performance of the tool’s heating and cooling channels (used for gluing) by 50% and combined two components into one — reducing the part’s mass by 51%.
