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 the uncertainties in the manufacturing world, companies around the world have hit hard by the disruption in their supply chain. Digital inventory stands out as one of the most efficient ways to effectively manage supply and demand fluctuations.

Watching its revenues plummeting over the last year, Oil & Gas industrials are looking for a rapid operational efficiency. That is why 3D printing is now entering into the game.

3D printing has been applied in the renewable energy industry to explore an alternative production process to make parts of renewable energy equipment to accelerate the development of the industry.

Having a more resilient supply chain allows businesses to minimize the negative impacts of disruptions or the time required to recover from the disruption. To do so, firms must have a well-planned and flexible sourcing strategy as discussed in this blog post.

As EU plans to implement the Right to Repair regulations, home appliance manufacturers must prepare themselves by shifting their mentality and adopt the appropriate solutions, such as digital manufacturing and IoT.

With the help of 3D printing technologies, Spare Parts 3D’s solution has a directly positive impact on environmental protection, allowing manufacturers to sustainably manufacture their spare parts.

Manufacturers have to have a various set of external risks that might cause operational disruption. Locally producing spare parts with 3D printing helps them reduce or even eliminate some of the business risks that can be beyond their control.

At Spare Parts 3D, we strongly believe that additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a game-changer for the manufacturing and supply chain industries.

If some famous companies like Boeing or BMW already took a step into AM, printing thousands of parts aiming at having more flexibility in customization, it is still very marginal compared to GE.
