The Automotive industry presents one of the most complex supply chains in the world. Companies have turned to Digitization and Additive Manufacturing for solutions and cost reduction.
Additive Manufacturing is used in the Aerospace & Defense Industry due to its material versatility. With AM prototyping and end-part production, companies are able to extend their capabilities.
The Medical and Pharmaceutical industries always look to find new ways for development. Additive Manufacturing has introduced new possibilities to these industries.
Storage and Warehousing have always been principle challenges in the Maritime sector. Shifting parts digitally helps solve these challenges and optimize ports and ships.
Additive Manufacturing does not only compete with traditional manufacturing, but also supplies and optimizes traditional manufacturing.
Mining sites are located in remote areas in which access can be difficult and limited. Shifting the sourcing of spare parts on site with a digital library helps solve issues such as downtime.
The Oil & Gas industry puts forward challenges notably in logistics. A digital warehouse of parts and additive manufacturing help companies reduce costs and prevent downtime.
The Transportation sector relies on additive manufacturing in supplying some parts. This sector is able to reduce costs and lower lead-time with additive manufacturing.
The Water & Electricity utility sector benefits from additive manufacturing and digital warehousing in lowering costs and acquiring parts on-demand.
