The world’s largest 3D printed titanium pressure functional component ever produced on one of the most powerful brake test benches on the market! This is what it looks like when Bugatti prepares its first printed titanium brake caliper for series production.

188mph@220c disc, not bad. I could imagine 110mph being usable but I am not 100% sure what a disc is supposed to be at for sure, but it looks good to me if it ran around 100mph or 80

whoever added slow motion, thank you so much for this.

3d printed war-mechs complete with 3d printed futuristic weaponry ran on cell packs as ammo for laser weaponry. soon

Poor metal parts of the brakes

Fatih Oğuz says:

What is song name

Coop Shop Designs says:

I don’t think it is advisable by Bugatti to hit the brakes that hard because those brake pads were toast after 3 or 4 runs lol

Dieser Sound 😍

Jay Kellam says:

are we going to acknowledge the fact that no one knows what SUV that was? could this be a sneak peek

Am I the only one that has sympathy for car parts?

Poor brake disc

The moment you realize you can't 3D print aluminum and have seen this vid on Bugatti channel: I have the intelligence of a God

FI- YA-SSIN says:

The name of the music in the last video please

FBI - Federal Bureau of Investigation says:

Nice reupload the the breaks are actually titanium and this is just a reupload

XxshuffledudexX says:

What music is this? I like it 😏😏😏

Irje Jcm says:

Why are there even dislikes in this?

Wali M2002 says:

Whats with the fake title this is basically the video where bugatti testes his titanium brakes

Mike Taram says:

Brake like this 2 to 4 times and go back to shop to replace it

Just incredible. A normal 8 piston caliper easily weights 15-16kg on the AMG ceramic brakes for example…this one weights 2,9kg. You can see how light it is when the guy takes it off. Just a beautiful piece of engineering. And the organic shape. Looks like mother nature knows a thing or two about designing efficient parts. Material only where it needs to be not where limitations of milling or forging machines dictate it. Titanium is so incredibly hard to work with, from production to processing. It's also amazing that the part has almost the same tensile strength as a milled part for example although it's only a clump of titanium powder melted together by a powerful laser…

For real?hello 3d printer, bye2 parts shop

RKH08 says:

If it was painted red it would have lasted much longer

Hasan Cakir says:

What are the specs? It has 8 pistons and 4 pads I guess. What about the force and other technical stuff? What is the benefit of using titanium caliper?
