Certification of individual 3D printed parts require long, complex, and expensive operations. While dealing with large quantities, it would be more realistic to certify the whole manufacturing process, further leading to certification of the parts produced within the process.
At Spare Parts 3D, we apply systematic standard requirements and associated test procedures for 3D printing processes. This way we can hedge risks and ensure the same levels of fidelity that are seen in conventional processes (casting, forging, machining).

With overwhelming improvements in the 3D printing technology both in terms of new and advanced 3D printers and materials, we will see a huge shift towards more direct manufacturing of consumer products in the coming years.

At Spare Parts 3D, so far we choose FDM technology to print plastic spare parts after careful comparison and analysis of the four widely used 3D printing technologies.

In the servitization era, companies should focus on spare parts management, a crucial component of customer relation as well as a profitable sector.

3D printing enables companies to Shorten and Simplify the Supply Chain, thanks to extensively Distributed Production

3D printing being now mature enough for end-use parts production, it is now ready to disrupt traditional manufacturing, as it enables companies to manufacture on-demand, to distribute production, and to perform mass customization.

Following our fact-stating infographic, here is to explain all the technical details about our TUV SUD PSB quality assessment – How exactly we achieved it?

3D printing shares main features of any other traditional manufacturing methods. It requires multi-disciplined expertise in both engineering and production.

The revolution of 3D printing is on, and in few years from now obsolescence will have become obsolete! How Additive Manufacturing will create infinite lifetime?

Supply chain is the result of a thin balance between offer and demand. With Additive manufacturing, you can now reduce your inventory buffer and tighten your supply chain with smaller batches of 3D printed parts.
