The automotive industry requires all sorts of parts made from both metals and plastics. Typical priorities for automotive customers include:
Below are some of the types of automotive parts we can manufacture for you:
We produce prototypes for many interior vehicle parts, such as the steering wheel, dashboard, and console. By utilizing rapid prototyping, interior parts can be tested in different ways. For example, steering wheels can be evaluated for their grip, dashboards can be verified for color, and consoles can be assessed for the amount of wear they show after use. The results gathered from these tests can provide insight into whether a design needs alteration.
The exterior parts we prototype include bumpers, headlights and tail lights, and door handles. Exterior part prototypes are generally tested for safety, such as how the bumper holds up in a simulated crash, how the lights perform in low light or rain, or how the door handles function with repeated use. Safety testing, such as failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA), can also be performed on exterior parts to evaluate the risk of failure in both everyday use and extreme conditions.
The functional parts that we can prototype include air components, engine covers, and air filter housings. Functional part prototypes are primarily tested to ascertain how well they perform within the vehicle. For example, the air components, engine covers, and air filter housings can be prototyped and tested to see how they function in the high-temperature environment generated by the engine.
We offer a huge range of material possibilities with all our manufacturing processes. Some common choices for automotive projects are listed below.
3ERP offer wide variety high level surface finishes. We only list some of the common finishing options. There are more finish options for custom parts for Automotive Industry.
