Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne is to spearhead the development of an automated, 3D printed repair service for cars with the Australian, not-for-profit Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (IMCRC) and industrial automation firm Tradiebot Industries.

Funded by a sum of $1,264,695 AUD (approx. $994 thousand USD), project ‘Repair Bot’ will run through 2019. The goal, as outlined by the IMRC, is to “enable a low cost rapid repair service for automotive plastic trim and assembly components” that can be commercially implemented in a same-day fix of vehicles damaged by collisions.

Tradiebot Industries Founder Mario Dimovski comments, “The ability to repair previously non-repairable parts using world-first technology will reduce overall repair times and repair costs,”

“It will also create real and significant export opportunities and has flow-on benefits for the environment by reducing land-fill.”

Years - Car - Manufacturers - Mercedez-Benz - Volkswagen

In recent years, leading car manufacturers like Mercedez-Benz, Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler, have been introducing 3D printing through digital part inventories and for tooling applications.

By demonstrating the potential to save thousands when matched against traditional machining processes, the Repair Bot project is poised to have a Global impact on the spare parts and repairs industry.
