This Ford Focus HVAC lever arm was digitally manufactured in production for Ford Motor Company. Ford collaborated with Carbon to design and produce several digitally manufactured, end-use parts.

Additive manufacturing (AM) has long been used in the automotive sector for everything from prototyping to engineering validation. The looming question is now whether additive can achieve volume production in a way that meets or exceeds the efficiencies of conventional manufacturing.

Ford has worked and collaborated with multiple companies to produce effective, additively manufactured end-use parts. At the 2019 Additive Manufacturing Conference, Ellen Lee, Ph.D., the additive manufacturing technical leader for Ford Motor Company, will cover how additive is building production value in the automotive industry and improving manufacturing efficiencies. Her presentation will explore how the automotive industry differs from others like aerospace and medical, and the ways that automotive manufacturers can focus in on useful and time-saving applications for continuously advancing AM processes.

The session will take place Wednesday, August 28, at 8:30 a.m.
