3D Printing: From Shipping Parts To Sending Files
Wilhelmsen partners with Ivaldi Group to fulfill the vision to disrupt the supply chain for marine parts whereby the existing inefficient and rigid supply chain process will be replaced with a customized, on demand, and more efficient process of 3D printing.
Making print-on-demand a reality, 3D printing services revolutionise the availability and delivery of marine parts.
Rapid design changes and the ability to quickly bring new solutions to our customers make 3D printing an attractive and viable option.
The technology opens up several new possibilities like:
• Reduced costs associated with marine parts and their delivery
• Shorter transportation and delivery time
• Availability of unobtainable marine parts for ships older than 10 years
• Typical parts procurement takes up to months but 3D printing could take just days
• Improved part design according to customer needs and use on board
Rapid design changes and the ability to quickly bring
new solutions to our customers makes 3D printing an
attractive and viable option.
Wilhelmsen and Ivaldi Group are collaborating to explore in-port 3D printing opportunities for marine parts.
