Both in February and April we further increased our machine pool in order to be ready for future requirements.
Since two months we have a FANUC Europe ROBOCUT 2-C600iB EDM machine. With this machine we can now carry out another part of the post-processing of our 3d-printed parts in-house and thus produce even more flexible.
In April we expanded our production capacity with yet another Lasertec 30 SLM von DMG MORI. Through this we are minimizing the material change for the individual machines. This enables us to handle 3d-printing jobs even more and therefore we are well prepared for the future beyond COVID-19!
We now also have an X7 3D-Drucker from Markforged at our disposal. That way we can supply our customers even faster with extremly strong and thus highly resilient spare parts.
Our “Parts on demand” service ist a great alternative to regular stock keeping.
After identifying your spare parts through Part Screening, we produce test prints to validate production parameters as well as relevant information about cost and lead times.
We then catalogue your components so that you can order them directly online. That way you avoid excessive stock keeping and long delivery times.

Are my parts suitable for 3D printing?
We are analysing your portfolio with our systematic Part Screening.
Using CAD-data, material and cost information as well as part dimensions and functions, we identify suitable components and/or assemblies.

The F0711-13 race car from the University of Stuttgart was able to prevail against competitors from all over the world at the Speedway Michigan and won the FSAE Michigan competition for the fourth time in a row, after 2016, 2017 and 2018. The racing team thus continued to secure first place in the world rankings of the international Formula Student Combustion competition. Congratulations!
This winning car is the only 3D printed component in the series. More precisely, there are 4 parts per race car. We are pleased that we were able to contribute to the success of the racing team with the so-called “Flexure Joints”. The parts are made of titanium and were printed without distortion in 15 hours.
The advantages of the additive component are obvious: In addition to a flow-neutral wishbone, there was a 48% weight saving and 33% better flow to the side boxes.
We at Bionic Production were pleased to contribute our expertise in the additive production of titanium components for the F00711-13 racing car and its successor, the F0711-14. A special manufacturing strategy for titanium makes it possible to build flexure joints and other titanium components with high quality and process reliability.
We wish everyone from the Stuttgart racing team continued success!

The world’s largest 3D printed titanium pressure functional component ever produced on one of the most powerful brake test benches on the market! This is what it looks like when Bugatti prepares its first printed titanium brake caliper for series production.
