3D Printing for Spare Parts

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

Securing Supply Chains
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.

Economizing spare part storage
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.

Why Use 3D Printing for Spare Parts?

  • On-Demand Manufacturing:
    Eliminates the need for large inventories, reducing storage costs.
  • Local Production:
    Shortens lead times, allowing for faster repairs and minimal downtime.
  • Legacy Part Creation:
    Helps maintain older equipment by creating discontinued or hard-to-find parts.
  • Cost-Effective:
    Reduces overall costs associated with maintaining a spare parts inventory.
  • Prolongs Equipment Lifespan:
    By reproducing out-of-production parts, you can extend the life of your existing hardware.
