Spartacus3D, a member of Farinia Group, a French industrial group specialising in materials development, reports that it has successfully additive manufactured a number of titanium components for DS Automobiles. The serial components were produced for the DS 3 Dark Side, a premium model which incorporates a number of decorative titanium features.
Spartacus3D used metal Additive Manufacturing to produce decorative parts of the vehicles ignition keys and door handle facia. According to the company, the project required close collaboration between DS’s design team and Spartacus3D to meet both the functional requirements of the products and the aesthetic requirements of the brand.
The company stated that the components produced using the metal AM process “illustrate perfectly the possibilities of the technique in terms of lightness, design, adaptability and precision.”
“Being chosen to equip the DS 3 Dark Side is for us a privilege,” stated Charles de Forges, Director-General of Spartacus3D. “It is also a strong sign that our efforts are being rewarded and that, in 2017, Spartacus3D is able to propose solutions to produce series of components through metallic Additive Manufacturing.”
With an expanding team and the ongoing acquisition of new production machines to cope with upcoming orders, Spartacus3D stated that it is embarking on a new chapter of its development.
