Producing for the future: Volkswagen Toolmaking opens highly advanced 3-D printing center
  • Innovative binder jetting process sets new standards for speed, flexibility and automation
  • New printer generation can print production parts in addition to prototypes in future
  • Dr. Andreas Tostmann: “The 3-D printing center takes Volkswagen’s additive manufacturing activities to a new level.”

The Volkswagen brand’s Toolmaking unit is adding a highly advanced 3-D printing center to its facilities in Wolfsburg. With the opening of the center, the unit is bringing the most highly advanced generation of 3-D printers to the Volkswagen Group, which will allow the production of complex vehicle parts in the future. In addition, with the new center, Toolmaking is implementing a key point of the pact for the future concluded in 2016 and expanding its production competences with subsidies from the Innovation Fund II.
