3D printing for spare parts
3D printing makes it possible to manufacture spare parts on demand. 3D printing has the power to mitigate the supply chain risks associated with sourcing of critical spare parts.
3D printed spare parts at your fingertips
A growing number of companies are adopting 3D printing as part of their strategy to ensure the availability of supply chain critical spare parts. Long lead times for spare parts can bring production to a standstill, if the required parts aren’t available in inventory.
Maintaining and storing a spare parts inventory is costly. 3D printing can significantly reduce these costs, since required spare parts can be manufactured locally and on demand. Furthermore, legacy parts that service providers are unable to supply can be 3D printed, thus prolonging the life of existing hardware.
