Event Details

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is rapidly developing as a technology suitable for low volume manufacturing of customized product designs. This closely matches the characteristics of slow moving spare parts for advanced capital goods. The short lead times of AM can significantly improve the balance between spare part inventory investment and system downtime. However, the quality and durability of printed parts may differ from original parts. Together with Additive Industries, Fokker Services, NLR and Thales, the universities of Twente and Eindhoven have explored the options to improve spare part supply chains using AM within the SINTAS* project. In this workshop, we would like to inform you about the key project results. We’d further like to discuss with you under which conditions and how you could profit from AM in spare part supply chains. Two international guest speakers will share their view with us and contribute to the discussions. Will you join?
