Reducing Legacy Part Warehousing
ADDere prints legacy stock on-demand
The ADDere additive system can reduce the need to keep legacy stock of components perpetually on-hand. The laser wire additive manufacturing process can create casting-grade components on demand when the need arises.
Customers could see reduced downtimes as spare part suppliers wouldn’t need to wait for a sufficient amount of demand before committing to costly low-quantity casting runs. This has a waterfall effect of greatly reducing lead times in the fulfillment of replacement part orders as well as maintaining the overhead of storage for legacy parts that may sit on the shelves (and on the balance sheets) for years without a demand.
Further, the ADDere additive manufacturing process needs only the digital versions of these forms to create parts. Manufacturers wouldn’t need to house and maintain large amounts of legacy molds and forms in order to support wide varieties of seldom used – but highly lucrative – repair parts.
If your business is looking to reduce legacy parts warehousing, please contact us today. The ADDere large-scale additive manufacturing process can print in sizes and materials to fit your business’s needs.
