Jaguar Land Rover Finds Competitive Advantage with Multi-Material 3D Printer
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) installed an Objet500 Connex 3D Printer in the summer of 2008 because of its multi-material capability, which combines two different materials and draws on their best attributes to deliver superior models. In a company where product development is key, this was important.
The two global premium brands of Jaguar and Land Rover have been under single ownership since 2000, first as part of the Ford Motor Company and later as the UK based wing of the Indian TATA Group.
Jaguar is using Objet Connex 3D Printing technology to create high-definition prototype parts directly from CAD data.
