How Railway Companies Benefit From Additive Manufacturing

Customer Story 3YOURMIND | September 27, 2022 | 2 min read

Read case studies to see how 3YOURMIND customers are leveraging additive manufacturing for the railway industry.

For decades, the railway transportation industry has relied on suppliers to provide maintenance spare parts to keep trains in operation.

However, as time goes on, and suppliers go out of business, there's a vacuum, resulting in manufacturing delays for maintenance spare parts needed to service in-use legacy equipment.

Additive manufacturing helps to address these issues by:

  • Remanufacturing obsolete parts faster without costly casting and tooling methods.

  • Minimizing stock inventory to reduce warehousing costs.

  • Printing parts when and where they're needed to reduce service downtime.

The railway industry can't afford to waste any time repairing equipment. When railway companies face operational downtime, transportation stalls, supply chains suffer, and costs rise. 

Find out how railway companies are using additive manufacturing to:

  • Save 50-70% more by producing spare parts with AM than current procurement methods.

  • Identify AM use cases whose cost savings are projected to generate more than a $20 million return on investment.

  • Reduce production lead times from two years to just three weeks.
