Replacement Parts in 3D Printing

Reduce Delivery Timeframes for Replacement Parts, Improve Flexibility

3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing (AM) for replacement parts and other slow-movers. Examples include components in small series, replacement parts that are difficult to procure, as well as fluctuating and difficult-to-plan requirements and customer demands.

Due to minimum order quantities, conventional production processes often lead to high inventory stockpiles and create costs. Manufacturers of off-highway and commercial vehicles, mechanical engineering or plant engineering need to master this challenge: 3D printing of metal components offers an efficient solution for replacement part procurement – the specialized area of the experts at ANTARES LCS.

Product Range Optimization

Streamline the Product Range, Optimize the Supply Chain

At many production companies, the product range offers substantial untapped potential to reduce costs and increase efficiency. This also applies to products at the end of their life cycle (keyword: obsolescence).

This is where the experts from ANTARES LCS will set to work and supply you with various solutions and support you during their implementation.
