New approaches to spare parts procurement and rapid prototyping
Additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) caters to a wide range of applications and is used for both the production of prototypes (rapid prototyping) and for small series production (rapid manufacturing).
Additive manufacturing is also becoming increasingly important in the manufacture of spare parts. Especially with older machines, complex components or if original spare parts are no longer available, the 3D printing of pump components offers a great opportunity for producing replacements.
Thanks to additive manufacturing, KSB can also produce highly complex structures that are both stable and extremely lightweight. In addition, you stand to benefit from up to 30 percent cost savings and around 40 percent time savings compared with traditional production methods. Experienced specialists from KSB’s accredited in-house materials laboratory ensure quality across the entire process chain.
