Qualification for 3D Printing
Leverage our onboarding services to make your 3D printing journey a success.
Benefit from expertise in additive manufacturing, materials, qualification and design.
Part Identification & Validation
Replique helps you identify 3D printable spare parts from an economic and technical point of view.
Not every spare part is suitable for 3D printing. Therefore, we deeply analyze spare part inventories, including technical and economic factors such as material properties, height, demand frequency and lead times. Usually this leads to around 7-10% of printable parts. In a next step we validate the spare parts in a test print and give a quote. Using this data, it is your choice to save the part designs in our digital inventory, so they can be printed on-demand and decentrally, leveraging our 3D printing network.
Material & Technology Selection
To enable high quality for all printed parts, we can choose the right material and technology for you.
Additive manufacturing offers a wide range of different technologies, used for different purposes. They are liquid, powder or solid based. 3D printing allows the use of many different materials from thermoplastics, metals, ceramics and biochemicals. Based on your part requirement (e. g. stiffness, hardness, UV-resistance) we can choose the right material and technology for you.
Simulation & Redesign
To produce lighter, stronger and more durable spare parts we offer simulation and design services.
We can use simulation to visualize the thermo-mechanics during manufacturing, leading to a production of high-quality and high-accuracy spare parts. If we see a potential of better part performance, we can also redesign your spare part. This leads to lighter and more durable parts with increased lifetime. Thus, reducing energy, costs and CO2 emissions during the usage phase of your product.
Convert Drawings & Reverse Engineering
We can convert your 2D drawings into a 3D model or reverse engineer your part to extract its design information.
Especially for older spare parts, design drawings are often not available anymore and CAD files are usually not existent at all. However, those legacy parts are a good fit for 3D printing as they cannot be manufactured with in a cost efficient way anymore traditional methods. That is why we are offering services for reverse engineering and converting 2D drawings into 3D files. By digitally storing the design, you can produce spare parts for aging assets on demand.
