RWTH Aachen Campus with its network of science and industry enables fast and market-oriented product development and competitive manufacturing for e.GO Mobile. As a result, after a mere three years of highly iterative development, series production of the e.GO Life will begin in spring 2018 at a new factory in Aachen Rothe Erde. The State of North Rhine-Westphalia has granted partial funding for the construction of e.GO Mobile AG’s production site with the help of the NRW Regional Economic Development Program (RWP). The ACAM Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing is one of the participants.
The development of additive manufacturing, ranging from prototype construction to a real addition to industrial manufacturing, is becoming increasingly palpable. From process development to Industry 4.0 integration, plastics to metallic high-performance materials,
component design software development to realizing new machine concepts: the ACAM Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing pools expertise individually and efficiently. In cooperation with e.GO Mobile AG, ACAM promotes additive manufacturing as a core element of agile and adaptive production. One key issue currently being investigated is the possibility of combining individual product design with additional functions. e.GO has set
standards of integration in additive manufacturing – from agile car development to targeted use in series production. In this, ACAM has provided the business with its comprehensive product design and manufacturing processes expertise.
