Peugeot-Citroën signs Partnership with Divergent3D for 3D Printed Cars
Divergent 3D has created a software-hardware platform enabled by 3D metal printing (the Divergent Manufacturing Platform™) that radically transforms the economics and environmental impact of designing and manufacturing complex structures such as cars. PSA Group (Citroën and Peugeot, France) is partnering with Divergent 3D to implement Divergent’s technology in its manufacturing processes with the objective of becoming a global leader in efficient automotive manufacturing.

The Signed Letter of Intent
PSA Group intends to develop a long-term relationship with Divergent 3D based on Divergent’s cutting-edge technology. The relationship will help to strongly accelerate PSA Group’s capabilities in efficient manufacturing enabled by 3D printing.
Additive manufacturing has long been used throughout the auto industry for small-scale pilot programs focused on development of individual 3D-printed components for production. PSA and Divergent 3D, in contrast, are partnering to transform the design and manufacture of overall vehicle structures with the objective of building lighter, structurally safe, more cost-efficient and environmentally responsible automobiles.
Divergent3D is based in California, USA.
