Ford, ExOne collaboration generates additive manufacturing breakthrough

April 26, 2021


The fruits of Ford’s commitment to additive innovation shine bright when looking at the results of a project it co-funded with ExOne. The goal of the collaboration was to bring together a team of engineers, material scientists and manufacturing experts to develop a now patent-pending process for rapid and reliable binder jet 3D printing and sintering of aluminum that delivers properties comparable to die casting.

The resulting process is expected to increase Ford’s efficiency by allowing the company to affordably produce complex parts uniquely designed for additive manufacturing, which enables size and weight reductions, part consolidation and performance improvements.
