The new and increasingly popular technology of 3D printing could pose a huge opportunity for manufacturers, especially those in need of spare parts in short order.
Duncan Stewart, Director of Research TMT, Deloitte, says that 3D printing might be a way that manufacturers can avert disaster when a critical part within their machinery breaks and needs immediate replacement. While 3D printing of spare parts may take several hours, it could pose an attractive alternative to the normal several days that manufacturers may wait to get a part in from another factory in another part of the world.
