In a first for the Omani oilfield sector, Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has teamed with Spare Parts 3D (SP3D), a French startup, to assess the 3D printability of 150,000 unique spare parts, the latter has revealed in a press statement.

Paris-headquartered Spare Parts 3D, a specialist firm that helps businesses digitalize their spare parts inventory through additive manufacturing, said a PDO team has processed 150,000 coded spare parts to define a 3D printing adoption matrix based on technical feasibility and economical attractiveness.

Spare Parts 3D (SP3D) is a French startup that helps manufacturers digitalize their spare parts inventory through additive manufacturing. They were part of the first French-Saudi French Fab Booster accelerator program that took place in Saudi Arabia from the 14th to the 24th of November launched by Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, in partnership with the National Industrial Development and Logistics program (NIDLP).

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).
