The advantages of creating a car grille with additive technologies

As we have already explained several times thanks to the combination of additive and subtractive technologies, we are able to realize all the components of a car.oday we want to talk to you about the technologies we can use to create a grille and their advantages. The choice of technology to be used depends primarily on the use that you must do the grille, so if mounted on a working vehicle must use the FDM technology that is able to create any geometry in a very short time and with definitive materials such as abs. Just out by machine the workpiece must be sanded very carefully in order to eliminate the visible layer and then painted. After this process the…

The digital factory 4.0

In the era of digital manufacturing and industry 4.0 a new way of doing business was born in Trofarello (TO), a company where manufacturing becomes 4.0 Thanks to the latest generation machines and an always innovative approach Skorpion Engineering is one of those Italian companies where everything can be done. From raw prototypes to finished ones, from single pieces to small productions. Thanks to the new HP Jet Fusion printers installed in the last few months Skorpion Engineering has started making additive manufacturing. These 3D printing machines have completely changed the way they produce in 3D and have allowed us to think about 3D printing not only for the realization of a single piece but also and above all for…

Ready Steady Go!

In these hours all the car-styling and the Turin-style centers are in turmoil for the final touches to the beautiful cars that will be presented next week at the Geneva Motor Show. For weeks we have worked incessantly to get perfect results and to agree design and production. From style to finishes every detail is treated to the maximum but you know what's new? There are more and more style centers that sometimes by choice and sometimes due to the scarcity of time use rapid prototyping technologies to create high performance parts and in a very short time. Stereolithography is often used to produce planks, bumpers, and showcar interiors, this technology has two advantages: one is the aesthetic value and…

The new frontiers of 3D printing: Jet Fusion Hp

The HP Jet Fusion 3200 3D printer with Multi Jet Fusion 3D technology has the ability to print objects in 3D up to 10 times faster than current 3D printing technologies and in a more economical way, without compromising quality, detail and robustness of the product. To considerably reduce printing time, MJF is based on Thermal Inkjet technology, which approaches surface material and not point-like. The 3D printing process develops with the fusion of the material through fusion lamps and the drafting of two chemical agents, respectively one of fusion and one of detail. The first together with the melting lamps melts the powder solidifying it, the second defines the geometries of the piece. The real HP Jet Fusion 3D…

Showcar 4.0: a new way to create a showcar

Our team of designers has dedicated the last months studying a new way to create a car, For many months, in our Trofarello production center with the support of our technical office in Milan We are busy developing a new process that comes from Addive Manufacturing and that will reduce time and cost of creating a car model. The process is always born from a sketch on paper because design is the basis of the development of everything, but thanks to the collaboration with the Young students and graduates we have completely changed the approach to design. Optimize your know-how in additive manufacturing AM (additive manufacturing) technology is becoming more and more widespread for prototyping, and the production of finished…

3D printing and the fourth industrial revolution: Gartner forecasts for 2021

Thanks to 3D printing research, companies are changing their business models. 3D printers can now produce complex parts, impossible to achieve with traditional technologies, in a very short time and with the highest level of customization. Gartner's research finds three sectors - medical devices, aircraft and consumer goods - that are making great progress in implementing advanced production with 3D printing. The experiences of these industries become a model to be applied in all productive sectors. One of the forecasts for the future of the 3D printing industry sees the aerospace sector as a protagonist: by 2021, 75% of new commercial and military aircraft will fly with engine, aeronautical cell and other components printed in 3D. One example is Boeing,…

Personalization here is the future of 3D printing

A few days ago I read a very interesting article on customizing automotive components through the use of 3D printing. https://www.3dprintingmedia.network/automotive-3d-printing-production-coming-2018/?utm_content=buffere9ea2&utm_medium=social&utm_source=linkedin.com&utm_campaign=buffer Each of us today can think of customizing any detail of a car to make it unique. Indeed, 3D printing allows us to rethink every single detail of both the interiors and the exteriors and to be able to realize it in a very short time. Technology is racing very quickly, the materials used are more and more efficient and the distance between prototyping and production is increasingly thin. Every day in our production center we create different projects, for example this week came out of our production center: - the prototype of a car in scale 1: 1-…

Waiting for 2018 we say goodbye to the old year, remembering with you the best moments of 2017

Today ends a long year, a year of great changes and great growth by the arrival of: - new people in our team- new machines- a new headquarters in Modena- an important partnerships with Blutec Termini Imerese The biggest news of the year was certainly the arrival of the Jet Fusion Hp printer that has upset all the patterns in the world of additive manufacturing but also in that of production. Within a few days of installing the first printer we have saturated the machine with pieces of any kind and have therefore we installed a second machine. Also in 2017 we introduced the metal between our printing technologies, a high-performance technology to final products. Our dream? create a whole…

If you can dream it you can do it

Something extraordinary is taking life in Skorpion Engineering. Thanks to the collaboration of our entire team we are developing an extraordinary project that will allow us to bring together all our skills and technologies. We are putting together all the know-how acquired over the years to realize a very ambitious project. The dream of Skorpion Engineering, has always been to become a 4.0 Factory, a Factory capable of creating a whole car combining additive and subtractive technologies. The recent installation of the second Jet Fusion 3D Hp will allow us to realize many details of a car very quickly and with excellent mechanical performance. The possibility of using two Fortus 900s will allow us to create even large parts in…
