Manufacturing with 3D printing
Bound to M.O.Q.
Time consuming manufacturing
Costly management of multiple warehouses
Constant risk of supply chain breach
Risk of running out of spare parts
High warehouse stocking costs
Accessible only at physical location
First of all, if you want to insource your On-Demand production, you will need to determine which parts are 3D printable.For that, quite some knowledge and expertise will be required. You will for example probably need to hire an AM expert.
Then, you will need to understand the wide variety of different 3D printing processes and invest in an industrial printer.There is no one process that is better than the other. Each type of printer has its own specificity and will be suitable for one type of use-case.
Once the choice is validated, the printer installed, the problem will be that you will be locked with a certain type of process and will only be able to print one type of spare part.
As you probably know, there are a multitude of different manufacturing service providers that can meet your needs.The problem is that often the challenge for the customer is to know which parts to start with.
There is a gap between the customer and the AM ecosystem that can be difficult to bridge.Moreover, if the customer has global demand, it will be necessary to identify, evaluate and manage a network of partners to be able to print locally.
