Mercedes Benz 3D Printing Creates Durable, Authentic Parts Just Like Daimler AG

First Posted: Jul 15, 2016 06:07 AM EDT

Mercedes Benz 3D printing produces various plastic truck components and other car parts from old catalogs or model lines. This environmentally friendly process is usually applied to create low-volume parts of old series members.

The Mercedes-Benz 3D Printing is printed easily and prevents the waste of space storage. Mercedes Benz 3D model can be produced using this technology particularly covers, spacers, spring caps, air and cable ducts, clamps, mountings and control elements. The Mercedes-Benz 3D Printing experiments started since the 1990s. They tried to use the process in creating parts  for the Rolls-Royce Phantom and indicator light casing.

The use of 3D printing was also practiced by Daimler, the world's largest truck manufacturer; producing 100,000 prototype parts annually. They just send a digital blueprint of a spare part to a 3-D printer that will convert special inks to plastics without stocking or shipping the part.

Daimler uses three-dimensional printing (3D) to make spare parts that are made from plastics. This process in digital manufacturing improves the vehicle supply chain. Daimler will begin to offer 30 spare parts for its truck fleet in September that can be processed from a 3D printer in any quantity and are supported by their genuine seal, Vegas sports reported.

Andreas Deuschle, Head of Marketing and Operations in the Customer Services and Parts Mercedes-Benz Trucks Division, said that they set same benchmarks for reliability, functionality, durability and economy for spare parts from 3D production as for parts from conventional production to keep what their brand promises, "Trucks you can trust."

The management Consultant Roland Berger, on the other hand, said that because of multi-laser machines and improvements in the powder-dispensing process, the cost of additive manufacturing is decreasing by between 25 percent and 45 percent until 2020.

Mercedes-Benz 3D Printing offers not copies or duplicates of parts but factory authentic Mercedes-Benz parts with its Mercedes Benz 3D logo. These parts are famous for their quality and durability, Architectual Digest reported.
