Replacement Parts in 3D Printing

The Advantages of Our Engineering Services: Reduce Delivery Times, Improve Flexibility

Components in small series, replacement parts which are difficult to procure, requirements and customer demands that fluctuate substantially (and are therefore effectively unplannable): All these result in high inventory stockpiles when using conventional processes due to minimum order quantities. Manufacturers of off-highway and commercial vehicles, mechanical engineering or plant engineering frequently face these challenges but 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing, AM) of metal components offers an efficient option for solving them – the specialized area of the experts at ANTARES LCS.

We are excited about the possibilities offered by 3D printing. Nonetheless, we approach each project with an open mind and select the process which makes the most sense, both technically and economically. Depending on the situation, we can also offer conventional processes such as casting, sheet metal forming, CNC, and so on.

To complete our services we also offer assemblies of systems and sub-assemblies.

Profit in Many Areas with Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)

1

Shorter Delivery Times

Components manufactured with 3D printing are available much faster than cast parts created with conventional methods – this is because there is no need to create tools and plan setup times. This is a huge competitive advantage for small production batches.

2

Reduction of Inventory Stockpiles

With minimal batch sizes (from a minimum of lot size 1) and short replenishment lead times, 3D printing makes it possible to reduce inventory stockpiles for products to a minimum. Products with uncertain or fluctuating requirements benefit from this as inventory risks are minimized and cash flow is optimized.

3

Realization of Complex Component Geometries

Through 3D printing, it is possible to produce highly complex (e.g. bionic) structures that cannot be produced in any other way.

4

High Degree of Individualization

In addition to this, it’s possible to produce individual geometries and requirements more efficiently than with conventional processes.
Moreover, to round out our offerings, we also include the assembly of products and systems.
