KEBALLOY 3D im Rinspeed Concept Car “Etos”

The self-driving concept car “Ʃtos” by the Swiss think tank Rinspeed addresses big questions of the automotive future: “How much human should, must or may be in a machine?” or “How much individuality can a mass product offer?”. The BARLOG Group provides an answer to the second question with the prototype of the front panel of the Ʃto made of KEBALLOY 3D.

Using the example of the Rinspeed Ʃto, the BARLOG Group shows how KEBALLOY 3D technology offers completely new possibilities for individualization in mass production. Networked manufacturing technology enables the creation of individual designs from a quantity of just one product – without additional effort in tooling and setup costs or logistics costs.

How does KEBALLOY 3D work?

The component – for example a tailor-made trim strip in the interior or a front panel made of plastic as in the “Ʃtos” – is produced cost-effectively in large quantities using an injection molding process with a technical thermoplastic from the KEBALLOY 3D range. The material contains special fillers that make it possible to store information in the surface through magnetism – quite similar in basic principle to an old compact or audio cassette. In an intermediate process, the desired design is magnetically imprinted into the surface. With networked and automated production technology, each part can be equipped with an individual design. Up to this step, the design is still invisibly stored magnetically in the surface. Finally, the components are painted with a special metallic lacquer, which brings the design to life and makes it visible. This is done by the metallic particles, which orient themselves to the magnetic field in the surface of the component and give the design a three-dimensional depth effect. Finally, the paint is given a top coat to finalize the individually designed component.
