aftermarket business with us.
Our online platform enables large OEMs to provide on-demand spare parts to their customers through our global, decentralized, and secured 3D printing network.
What We Do
Replique believes that the future of spare part business lies in licensing the part design and manufacturing it in a decentral manner rather than selling the physical part itself.
Therefore, Replique offers an online platform that transforms traditional manufacturing’s fixed cost into a variable cost — thus, providing an End-to-End Solution for OEMs to manufacture on-demand, sell and distribute spare parts globally and as close as possible to the end-customer.
Our ecosystem recruits highly experienced and professional service bureaus to ensure high-quality output. We take strong measures to protect the OEMs’ intellectual property, who onboard their part designs on our platform, by partnering with the best available encryption technology provider.
Centralized production and distribution of spare parts are becoming a big challenge in most traditional machine-intensive industries. Especially in uncertain situations like Covid-19, OEMs are confronted with disrupted supply chains and international delivery uncertainties. Such circumstances force them to incur high Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs) of spare parts in their warehouse to provide business continuity. This additional inventory, if unused, might further cause obsolete inventory, leading to an increased overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
We believe that there is vast potential to manage the aftersales market more efficiently. Replique’s user-friendly platform enables OEMs to produce the spare part on-demand and empowers them to leverage decentralized additive manufacturing. Manufacturing closer to the point of consumption will make the supply chain simple and lower the logistics costs.
We build our business on strong foundations of trust. By producing decentral and on-demand, OEMs can benefit from our following fundamental value addition
