“La Bandita” paves the way for a new production
Accelerated by Siemens, the California Hackrod company wants to pave new and groundbreakingly ways of the vehicle production: designed in virtual reality, engineered with AI and 3D printed.
This could result in significant progress combining Additive Manufacturing and mass customization within the automotive industry. The first prototype, a speedster named »La Bandita« speedster is based on sports car chassis 3D printed in aluminium alloy. It was designed in Hackrod’s factory of the future, which uses multiple tools from Siemens PLM Software.
Dr. Slade Gardner, Hackrod CTO emphasizes how important the cooperation with the German Siemens Group is. »Our shared vision includes optimized aesthetic design, robust validated engineering, complex advanced manufacturing and rapid in-situ quality assessment.«
