Every part might not fit with 3D printing or be 3D printed with profitability. Therefore it is a necessity to understand the full extent of your business. Spare catalogues sometimes reach hundreds of thousands of references and datas are fragmented between several databases (ERP, PLM). Determining the appropriate parts is not the easiest stage of implementing 3D printing.
Spare Part 3D consulting service aims at creating awareness about 3D printing among industrial manufacturers, and supporting your company getting into 3D Printing in a smart way.
Once we have a good understanding of your business value, Spare Parts 3D performs a profitability study for each selected part to ensure optimal savings, and to highlight the process changes required to capture that lost value. With this objective in mind, we developed DigiPART, the platform that stock digitally spare parts. With it, our customers can browse automatically through millions of parts and find the one that makes the most sense to be produced by 3D printing.
We offer to our client our methodology, tools and expertise to single-out the right spares from both technical and business aspects.
Together, we are now able to plan a practical roadmap to set the next steps.
