A digital inventory could change the storage and inventory system of your company. We talked about spare parts in a previous blog post and we saw the advantages of using 3D printing to manufacture them. It has an impact on the storage of a manufacturer. Indeed, getting your spare parts 3D printed will allow you to develop a new warehouse system, way more convenient for your company.
Indeed, no matter what your sector is, if you are producing parts and spare parts, you will have to manufacture them and some of these spare parts will certainly wait to be needed and take a lot of this space during the years… It is even possible to have too many parts for now obsolete products that you don’t even produce anymore. A lot of companies are relying on physical inventory in order to meet aftermarket needs, but digital inventory might be the real solution.
Indeed using additive manufacturing is an opportunity to work on the design of your product, it can be a simple or really complex design: everything is doable while using 3D printing, you will have a great freedom to give life to your best. You will also have a total freedom when it comes to the volume of production. With 3D printing, you can produce as many parts as you need. It is actually perfect for spare parts and small batches.
3D printing shortens the supply-chain and gives you a central role: you can choose precisely the size of your batch, do you need one or several parts? You can modify your design or make iterations with different designs. You can give life to any complex projects and almost skip assembly processes as your objects can be printed in only one part.
