3D printing has allowed companies within the rail industry to replace or restore one-off parts and produce specific tooling at a fraction of the cost, with no minimum quantity, ultimately transforming their supply chain.
The rail industry, let alone the world of transport is constantly undergoing innovation. With Additive Manufacturing, rail companies can save huge amounts of time avoiding dealing with the supply chain and maximise profitability with projected savings of up to 80% when compared to traditional manufacturing methods.
3D printing is reshaping the way we perceive production in the rail industry. We can replace, restore, prototype, test and much more at a fraction of the cost and time.
