Car manufacturer Porsche is gradually embracing AM technologies across its worldwide subsidiaries. Following several successful use cases of AM in Europe and in the USA – use cases that include 3D printed pistons, 3D printed bucket seats or 3D printed classic parts -, the automaker is now investing in these technologies for its China-based subsidiaries.

For a start, industrial FDM 3D printing from INTAMSYS has been chosen to help the company speed up its digital transformation.

Combined with high-performance materials, the 3D printer manufacturer’s solutions can be utilized across the aerospace, automotive, medical and scientific research fields.

Digital transformation has seeped into every aspect of production and daily life, and is listed as one of the core issues in Porsche’s operation strategy,” says Jens Puttfarcken, President and CEO of Porsche China. “Porsche plans to boost the actual application of additive manufacturing technology, and leverage the significant innovation potential of 3D printing in terms of both product and process to offer customers more flexible production and customisation services. We are honoured to support INTAMSYS as an important partner on Porsche’s digital transformation journey, as they help fulfill our vision of the future.”

As a subsidiary of Porsche, Porsche Ventures that completed this investment, is committed to partnering with and investing in outstanding entrepreneurs and start-ups from all over the world, with offices in Europe, the US, Israel and China. Aware of the huge potential of the Chinese market, Porsche Ventures focuses on the dynamics of emerging industries in the region, such as automotive, innovative technology, the internet and artificial intelligence. It has successively invested in local start-ups like NIO Capital and iMaker to expand its portfolio in China. Porsche Ventures also allocates more than 150 million euros each year for investment in start-ups and venture capital firms, focusing on future-oriented technology, emerging trends and new business models, while providing industrial resources and experience to the companies in which it invests.
