3D Printed Spare Parts

Deciding between customer satisfaction and cost efficiency is a thing of the past with 3D printing. Fulfill spare part demands quickly AND economically with decentral additive manufacturing and a digital inventory, where your parts are stored eternally.

CHALLENGE

Every spare parts manager knows the challenge. A growing product population on the market with many different product variations, that leads to a rising number of parts over the years. To provide every spare part throughout the product lifetime becomes complex. Having all parts available in a warehouse comes with huge inventory costs and the risk of obsolescence. If a spare part is not available however, this could lead to even bigger challenges. Spare parts have to be supplied with high minimum order quantities and express shipments. And even worse for critical spare parts: lead times are long. This could result in long downtimes and unsatisfied customers. How can this be solved?

HUGE INVENTORY COSTS

LONG LEAD TIMES AND DOWNTIMES

HIGH MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITIES

SOLUTION

Imagine you could provide spare parts on demand, anytime and anywhere – just with a click on a button. Without a physicial inventory and related costs, without keeping and maintaining tools, no mininum order quantities and huge shipment costs. Replique provides you the solution, combining a 3D printing ecosystem with a digital inventory. Once qualified for 3D printing, spare parts are stored eternally and can be produced everywhere worldwide, with lower costs than using traditional manufacturing.

NO TOOLING REQUIRED

PRODUCTION ON DEMAND
