|[Process Optimization - Procurement]|
3D printing allowed Vauxhall to check the accuracy of the CAD design against all vehicle location points on site prior to ordering the cast steel blocks.
|[Efficiency Improvement - Quality Assurance]|
3D prototyping allows parts to be tested on site to validate that all specifications are met before ordering production.
|Without 3D printing technology, Vauxhall estimated that implementation would have been delayed for up to 6 months to secure test components.|
|Testing the 3D printed blocks on site enabled Vauxhall to identify and resolve a problem with the height of the top location pin when automatically loading one of the model variants.|
