Automotive Industry

TriMech provides automotive industry manufacturers with prototyping, advanced tooling and production applications.

Automotive Solutions

TriMech supports automotive vehicle design with its professional and production grade Stratasys 3D Printing and Artec 3D scanning services.

Automotive manufacturers are empowered to produce advanced functional and durable parts. Supporting high requirement applications with efficiency-improving build complexities that are not achievable through traditional means. In addition we assist our clients with methodologies to support bridge and direct manufacturing capabilities.

Whether your requirement is to improve fuel economy, optimize part count to weight ratios, or eliminate tooling costs, our ability to put automotive and transportation specialists on the fast track to success is what drives us.

Scanning and Prototyping

TriMech 3D scanning services lets automakers not only speed up day-to-day productivity, but shorten output development lifecycles, and facilitate the manufacturing of high-performance vehicles without compromising on safety or quality standards. TriMech can assist with reverse engineering, inspection and quality, and rapid prototyping.

We offer Stratasys FDM 3D printing service for resilient prototypes and parts made from high-performance engineering thermoplastics. For beautiful models requiring rubber-like or clear materials with a smooth finish, customers choose PolyJet 3D printing service.

 

How TriMech helps Automotive Manufacturers:

Prototype Ideas Into Production

Go from the design studio to the factory floor in a fraction of the time it takes other development processes. We can produce street ready parts for realistic product tests.

Simplify Production

We can help you to optimize your assembly and 3D print QA tools. Avoid scrap and retooling by testing injection-molds and other tools before machining them.

Scan and 3D Print Concepts

From scale models to product concepts, 3D scanning and additive manufacturing helps designers shape the way cars are imagined and made.

Small Production Runs and Vehicle Customization

Tailor vehicles to a specific region or market, while keeping customization in sync with the rest of product development. Customize repairs, restorations, and accessories with advanced 3D printed materials.

Automotive Industry Profile

Go from the design studio to the factory floor in a fraction of the time it takes other development processes. Prototype, test, and produce all manner of tools, jigs, fixtures, and street-ready parts with unprecedented speed and efficiency.

Get your parts on the road faster

With automotive 3D printing and scanning solutions, we can help you to raise quality and throughput by optimizing assembly and QA tools. Avoid scrap and retooling by testing injection-molds and other tools before machining them.

Advanced Manufacturing Features & Applications

 

  • Quality and assurance

Reduce Expensive CNC Production Costs

Reduce expensive and lead-time critical CNC-milled parts with TriMech manufactured plastic parts.

3D printed plastic parts also perform better technically, weigh less, and are well suited for the production of complex bodies that, when using conventional metal-cutting processes, would be very difficult and costly to produce.

Automotive 3D Scan

Improve Design Workflow

Streamline your design, prototyping, inspection, and manufacturing workflows with 3D measurement services from TriMech.

We help automotive manufacturers capture accurate, measurable 3D data from any part or component from tiny to very large.

Create Better Assembly Tools

Using 3D printing allows you to be more cost effective on the assembly line.

For hand-held devices used on the assembly line, engineers can use 3D printed models to make ergonomically designed assembly aids that perform better than conventionally made tools.

Test and Identify Design Problems

3D scanning and printing services can help with prototyping and quality.

In some cases using CAD models alone is not as effective at finding design problems as a 3D printed physical part – you can easily identify a component issue that may have been missed in the initial design stage.

Part Mock-ups and Prototypes

Unleash the imagination of your designers and manufacturers with PolyJet technology 3D printing service that bring ideas to life, free from the usual time or financial constraints.

 

 

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.

FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.

With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.

Gain new possibilities

TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.

Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
