Bugatti, a subsidiary of General Motors Corporation (NYSE: GM), has revealed details of a 3D-printed brake calliper, intended to be the largest functional titanium component produced through additive manufacturing.
Hamburg-based manufacturing partner, Laser Zentrum Nord, handled the actual printing, creating the calliper using four 400-watt lasers to help fuse layers of titanium alloy powder.
I remember being told the callipers would straighten my legs, which were bent and out of shape," she says.
Her mother even made toy callipers out of plastic straws for Philippa's dolls to reassure her daughter.
As far back as I can remember all my toys had callipers," she says.
