Faced with the challenge of meeting increased customer demand for one-off customized parts, Siemens Mobility required an alternative manufacturing solution to overcome the time and cost barriers associated with traditional low-volume production.
This was particularly exemplified during a recent project for German transport services provider, SWU Verkehr GmbH. With the integration of a Stratasys Fortus 900mc 3D Printer into its production process, Siemens was able to address these challenges by 3D printing on-demand, customized parts rapidly and cost-effectively, resulting in reducing inventory costs for Siemens and customers.
As a result, the Mobility division is now able to respond more quickly to low-volume customer demands, while boosting its manufacturing flexibility – leading to an increase in client satisfaction.
