Crash Test Dummies Get Older—and Better

The crash test dummy has come of age over many decades as the gold standard for safety testing of automobiles.  In the automotive sector alone, Humanetics serves 100% of the OEMs and Tier I safety suppliers worldwide with these anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs), as well as calibration equipment, crash sensors and instrumentation, and crash simulation software models.

As they worked to cost-effectively develop their latest elderly dummy model, Humanetics decided to look into 3D printing (a.k.a additive manufacturing) technology to more quickly fulfill their needs for small-batch production, less expensive replacement parts, and faster turnaround times.
