3D printed spare parts – an effective solution for companies.
The costs of spare parts represent the highest share of all industry maintenance costs. More and more companies from various industries are recognizing the distinct advantages of replacing worn or destroyed items with 3D printed parts. Using 3D printers to print spare parts or even entire, unique tools has thus already become standard procedure in many industries.
Original spare parts can be associated with high costs or long delivery times, and in some cases they can no longer be obtained at all. Thus, it is a very common practice in the automotive industry to replace missing parts with 3D printed spare parts when restoring old-timers.
