DENSO, a leading mobility supplier, announced on June 23rd, 2021 that it invested in Seurat Technologies, US start-up that develops and sells 3D printers for metals. The investment will help speed the development and commercialization of Seurat’s patented additive manufacturing technology and is DENSO’s latest move to bolster its digital transformation.
Seurat’s Area Printing technology allows manufacturers to print metal parts at scale, combining unprecedented speed, precision, part integrity and reliability, while still being cost effective. Seurat’s innovative process guarantees high quality and resolution for mass production of metal components across all industries, including automotive. For a supplier like DENSO, this solution could cut production times and improve its ability to quickly support customers’ shifting requirements.
The investment also aides DENSO’s larger efforts to advance manufacturing technologies. In this, DENSO collaborates with companies like Seurat, in addition to creating its own solutions like its Factory-IoT Platform, to help digitize operations. This creates opportunities to optimize workflows, increase efficiency and operate more flexibly.
