Enjoy an End-to-End solution for your spare part supply-chain and unlock the full potential of the 3D printing ecosystem.

Optimize you spare-parts supply chain by using the advantages of 3D printing and a digital warehouse.

You are facing the challenges of expensive downtimes due to missing spare parts? Minimum order quantities force you to invest more than you need and block your warehouse spaces? Or rising lead times of supplies lower the demand of your goods?

  1. Expensive Downtimes:  Discontinued long-tail parts causing customer unsatisfaction and expensive downtimes.
  2. M.O.Q.s: Minimum Order Quantity leading to high stock investments.
  3. Low Stock Rotation: Long tail parts forcing you to tie up your treasury in your warehouses.
  4. Long Lead Times: Your global demand slowed down by the long lead time of your local suppliers.
