Conference Abstract: When automotive collision repairs are needed, only a small percentage of components, such as headlights and bumpers, are repaired by collision shops. Most other cases necessitate the costly replacement of the entire assembly. Additive manufacturing is poised to revolutionize the automotive collision repair process by enabling a major increase in the volume of repairable damaged components.

The introduction of 3D printed components enables faster repair cycle time for vehicles, lower repair costs, and reduction of scrapped components in landfills. GKN Additive, along with industry partners, is working to validate the materials and processes for robust repairs as well as establishing best practices for supplying and utilizing these components. Learn more about this challenge and the massive impact it will have on the collision repair industry while exemplifying the best of what additive manufacturing has to offer.
