Volkswagen FAW Engine Company（VF） was co-founded by Volkswagen and FAW company in China . It is one of the most advanced engine producing company. The famous engine EA888 is produced here.
Now VF is getting started working with 3D printer. And Mankati E180 3D Printer becomes their choice.
After VF decided to introduce 3D Printing into their company, it took lots of efforts to learn and compare among different 3D printers. Finally, Mankati E180 was chosen mainly for 3 reasons:
Firstly, Mankati E180 is able to directly print end-use parts with high-performance materials such as nylon or PC. As a automotive manufacturing company, VF needs 3D printed end-use part that is strong, tough and has the thermostability.
Secondly, Mankati E180 has a low price. 3D printing just came to the application stage in China, companies or manufacturers tend not to take risks investing too much in it before they learn all about it and get used to work with it. When comparing among 3D printers capable of directly printing end-use parts with high-performance materials, the price of Mankati E180 shows its great advantage.
Thirdly, Mankati E180 is stable and easy to use. It only needs to take a few hours to grasp how to use and maintain Mankati E180. And the stability ensures users’ high-standard experience.
Besides, Mankati offers training and consulting services to make sure that 3D printing technology will create values beyond users’ expectations as soon as possible.
To help them learning all about Mankati E180 and making full use of it as soon as possible, Mankati sent experts to Volkswagen FAW Engine Company to train their engineers about 3D printing.
We learn from the feedback that Volkswagen FAW Engine Company’s engineers like to use Mankati E180 in different areas, including installation jigs & fixtures, operation button protection, and signs.
It is kind of funny that these intellectual engineers even 3D printed a “STOP” sign for their own convenience. We believe it reflects the fact that Mankati E180 is really easy to use and stable. Or, all these engineers would not be so fond of using it.
And this is what Mankati wishes for. As a 3D printer developer and manufacturer, Mankati firmly believes in the capabilities and potentials in 3D printing. But to explore the width and depth of 3D printing applications, it requires the endeavors of engineers and users from all areas.
According to this tendency, we believe Volkswagen FAW Engine Company will exploit more and more values hidden in 3D printing, and make great profits for itself.
