Prep, Print, Repeat: Solving Energy’s Supply Chain Challenges with Innovative Metal AM Solutions

The energy sector faces significant challenges in replacing critical parts for machinery operating under severe conditions. Traditional manufacturing methods are slow and inefficient, leading to long lead times and costly warehousing of spare parts. Advanced metal additive manufacturing (AM) technology, such as Velo3D’s fully integrated solution, offers a transformative alternative by decentralizing supply chains and drastically reducing production times for essential components. Velo3D’s laser powder bed fusion technology enables the consolidation of multiple parts into a single, more efficient component, enhancing performance and ease of replication.

Velo3D’s system integrates software and hardware to ensure repeatability and scalability of supply chains, regardless of location. With parts printable on any Velo3D printer globally, consistency and quality are assured. This advanced metal AM solution has the potential to revolutionize the energy sector’s supply chain management by reducing lead times, improving efficiency, and providing greater control over the manufacturing process.
