All Bugatti are produced by hand at the headquarters in Molsheim, France. However, in order to manufacture the details on a vehicle, sometimes people need the help of a machine. With Bugatti, not only their cars possess top-of-the-line technologies, but they are all made up of the leading technologies in this industry.
In recent times, 3D printing technology is gradually becoming popular in the car manufacturing industry, especially with super car manufacturers. 3D printing technology is a very difficult technology to use, which is why they are more popular in the aerospace industry. However, once they have this technology in their hands, manufacturers can create the parts with the highest accuracy, along with almost absolute material savings.
Of course, at the speeds Bugatti’s super sports cars are capable of achieving, these cars are closer to the aerospace industry than automakers can reach, so there are no Unsurprisingly, Bugatti also uses 3D printing in its cars.
Unlike other brands that use this technology to print plastic items, Bugatti uses this new technology to print titanium exhaust cover details for their models. The models applied by Bugatti are Chiron Pur Sport, Chiron Super Sport 300+ and some regular Chiron, Divo shipped in recent times.
Bugatti is the only company in the world to use this technology to print titanium materials, and with this technology, it can significantly reduce this expensive material. The Chiron Pur Sport’s exhaust with this technology is 220 mm x 480 mm x 130 mm (length x width x height) and weighs only 1.85 kg, including mesh details and base.
To create this detail, Bugatti used a 400 Watt 3D printer with the highest accuracy because this part of the car is only 0.4 mm thin. To complete the detail, the printer created up to 4,200 layers of stacked powder material.
This is not the first time Bugatti has used 3D printing in the production of its cars. The company has been developing this technology since 2018 and introduced Chiron brake shackles that are manufactured using 3D printers. In addition, other cars such as Centodieci or La Voiture Noire also have some 3D printed details. The exhaust kit on the Chiron Sport is also 3D printed using Iconel 718, which is an alloy made up of nickel and aluminum, with light weight and good insulation.
