IAM 3D Hub aims to accelerate the adoption and development of 3D printing technologies in the European Union’s manufacturing sector. The Hub helps integrate and coordinate activity in the additive manufacturing ecosystem and provides its customers with an alternative way to design, develop, and manufacture new competitive products and services.
Continental Automotive Spain S.A. is one of IAM 3D Hub’s clients; and, as a global Tier 1 supplier in the automotive sector, the company is under constant pressure to reduce costs and operate more efficiently.
The challenge was to design a gripper that could significantly reduce the amount of time required to carry out the assembly, coupling, calibration, and maintenance of the tooling—both in the implementation of a new production activity and during changes between different work processes.
