Small series & digital spare parts management

In contrast to conventional production methods, economies of scale do not apply to additive manufacturing. This means the cost per unit is not dependent on the number of units, which makes cost-effective small series possible. In turn, this opens up new applications such as digital spare parts management. Spare parts are stored digitally and produced individually when required. This focus topic presents interesting examples of small series.

Additive Manufacturing in use at 400m depth

10:45 - 10:55, Innovation Symposium

Focus topic: Small series & digital spare parts management
Application: Mechanical engineering and automation technology

Speaker

Fabian Graber
Engineering / 3D-Printing, BSF Bünter AG

With increasing depth, large forces act on the tubes of a geothermal probe. In order to be able to cope with these forces at the lowest point over decades, Jansen relies on additive reinforcing sleeves and saves 70% of the original production costs.

Additive Serial Production - Opportunity Cost-Efficiency

11:05 - 11:15, Innovation Symposium

Focus topic: Small series & digital spare parts management
Application: Mechanical engineering and automation technology

Speaker

Sonja Rasch
Sales Director Manufacturing, Materialise

How does series production with additive manufacturing succeed? Examples from different fields of application are used to illustrate which challenges were met and how they were solved. The presentation provides insight into how cost-efficient series applications can be identified and what is necessary to realize them.

Lean Production – Additive Fertigung in der Robotik

11:15 - 11:25, Innovation Symposium

Focus topic: Small series & digital spare parts management
Application: Mechanical engineering and automation technology

Speaker

Ralf Schindel
Geschäftsführung, Prodartis AG

F&P Personal Robotics entwickelt und produziert anerkannte kollaborative Roboter für die Industrie- sowie Servicerobotik. Aus Gründen kurzer Time-to-Market, Gestaltungsfreiheit und Individualisierbarkeit der Produkte setzt F&P auf die Additive Fertigung vieler Kunststoffbauteile im Speziellen in den Bereichen Verschalung und Greifer.
