Technology collaboration to unlock automotive 3D printing potential - 3D Printing Progress

Henkel is partnering in a research and development project called SYMPA, that is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Federal Ministry Republic of Austria Transport, Innovation and Technology. The German and Austrian project consortium aims to develop new materials, printing methodologies and post-processing technologies for durable Stereolithography (SLA) products using Digital Light Processing with a focus on automotive applications. SYMPA started end of 2018 and involves five partners bringing different expertise along the entire value chain of the SLA technology. For more information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printing Materials 2019-2029: Technology and Market Analysis.


The project partners believe that the SLA technology has a huge potential to enable the production of customized parts and products specifically designed for customer needs especially in automotive. Thus, SYMPA aims to overcome some of the weaknesses of current SLA materials such as low mechanical properties, low durability and low UV stability. The innovation objectives include the development of a new photosensitive polymer with increased long-term thermal and mechanical properties, the fibre reinforcement of the polymer and surface modification technologies to further enhance the environmental resistance of products. All developed technologies will be demonstrated based on real automotive parts considering the requirements on industrial production processes.



SYMPA is coordinated by the Institute of Aircraft Design of the University of Stuttgart and involves partners across the entire value chain of the SLA technology including material specialists, machine producers and research institutes:


Henkel AG & Co. KGaA has developed novel high-performance photopolymers with improved mechanical and thermal durability for the SLA technology.


The Institute of Aircraft Design (IFB) brings a strong background in lightweight construction and composite applications, including fibre reinforced SLA materials for strongly increased mechanical properties and fatigue limit.


Rapid Shape GmbH offers high speed open 3D printing systems that can be adopted with different process extensions to meet various material or customer requirements and environmental conditions.


Joanneum Research and INOCON Technologie GmbH are specialists for development and application of plasma technology for coating and activation, i.e. deposition, post-processing and surface modification for better mechanical and environmental resistance, controlled wettability and electric conductivity of polymers.


cirp GmbH as experienced 3D-printing service provider enables technology demonstrations on real automotive structures and improved design processes of SLA components.



SYMPA has been set up for three years until end of 2021 resulting in an SLA toolbox as preliminary stage for tailored 3D printing solutions in the automotive industry.

I Ran A Stock Scan For Earnings Growth And Automotive Axles (NSE:AUTOAXLES) Passed With Ease - Simply Wall St

Some have more dollars than sense, they say, so even companies that have no revenue, no profit, and a record of falling short, can easily find investors. Unfortunately, high risk investments often have little probability of ever paying off, and many investors pay a price to learn their lesson.

If, on the other hand, you like companies that have revenue, and even earn profits, then you may well be interested in Automotive Axles (NSE:AUTOAXLES). Now, I’m not saying that the stock is necessarily undervalued today; but I can’t shake an appreciation for the profitability of the business itself. Conversely, a loss-making company is yet to prove itself with profit, and eventually the sweet milk of external capital may run sour.

View our latest analysis for Automotive Axles

How Quickly Is Automotive Axles Increasing Earnings Per Share?

If a company can keep growing earnings per share (EPS) long enough, its share price will eventually follow. That makes EPS growth an attractive quality for any company. I, for one, am blown away by the fact that Automotive Axles has grown EPS by 52% per year, over the last three years. That sort of growth never lasts long, but like a shooting star it is well worth watching when it happens.

Careful consideration of revenue growth and earnings before interest and taxation (EBIT) margins can help inform a view on the sustainability of the recent profit growth. Automotive Axles maintained stable EBIT margins over the last year, all while growing revenue 28% to ₹19b. That’s a real positive.

NSEI:AUTOAXLES Income Statement, August 13th 2019 NSEI:AUTOAXLES Income Statement, August 13th 2019

Since Automotive Axles is no giant, with a market capitalization of ₹12b, so you should definitely check its cash and debt before getting too excited about its prospects.

Are Automotive Axles Insiders Aligned With All Shareholders?

As a general rule, I think it worth considering how much the CEO is paid, since unreasonably high rates could be considered against the interests of shareholders. For companies with market capitalizations between ₹7.1b and ₹28b, like Automotive Axles, the median CEO pay is around ₹19m.

The Automotive Axles CEO received ₹13.5m in compensation for the year ending March 2019. That comes in below the average for similar sized companies, and seems pretty reasonable to me. While the level of CEO compensation isn’t a huge factor in my view of the company, modest remuneration is a positive, because it suggests that the board keeps shareholder interests in mind. I’d also argue reasonable pay levels attest to good decision making more generally.

Does Automotive Axles Deserve A Spot On Your Watchlist?

Automotive Axles’s earnings per share have taken off like a rocket aimed right at the moon. Such fast EPS growth makes me wonder if the business has hit an inflection point (and I mean the good kind.) At the same time the reasonable CEO compensation reflects well on the board of directors. So Automotive Axles looks like it could be a good quality growth stock, at first glance. That’s worth watching. Now, you could try to make up your mind on Automotive Axles by focusing on just these factors, or you could also consider how its price-to-earnings ratio compares to other companies in its industry.

Although Automotive Axles certainly looks good to me, I would like it more if insiders were buying up shares. If you like to see insider buying, too, then this free list of growing companies that insiders are buying, could be exactly what you’re looking for.
