The designs you’re thinking of often depend on subtle curves and contours. They must also be functional. Achieving both at once presents real challenges. Especially when your body-in-white designs could incorporate dozens of sensors and cameras, and sit on electrified powertrains. At 3M, we deliver technologically advanced abrasives, structural adhesives, engineered damping materials and flexible sealants, to name a few, to help move your design out of your head and onto the production line. That’s what we’re doing today. Tell us what you’re thinking about tomorrow. We’re happy to help.
As 3M actively works to develop new technologies and combine existing ones, we are continually discovering solutions that solve more than one challenge at a time. That’s why we can meet the needs of automotive OEM professionals and Tier suppliers wherever they are in the automotive body-in-white process, from design to simulation to assembly.
Start by answering a couple questions about your design challenge, and we’ll point you toward some initial solutions for your consideration.
