Spare Parts

Overview of spare parts

Many complex instruments and tools need to replace parts frequently, and spare parts can reduce the downtime of instruments and improve production efficiency. A common problem for many manufacturers is the quantity and storage of spare parts. Most parts are produced in large quantities to spread the cost of traditional manufacturing. In order to ensure the supply of spare parts, it is usually necessary to maintain a large inventory, which also causes high costs. Another problem with traditional spare parts manufacturing is the long delivery time.

With 3D printing, these problems can be solved successfully. Through 3D printing, it can quickly provide spare parts on demand at a lower cost.


CD BioSciences is a trusted high-tech company with the broadest portfolio of 3D printing materials and a professional service team. Our company provides 3D printing services for many companies around the world, which has been widely praised and brings more benefits to customers. As a new solution to parts production, 3D printing has many advantages.


  • Economical small batch production

Compared with traditional manufacturing processes such as injection molding, the fixed costs (such as tool manufacturing and installation costs) of 3D printing are relatively low. Since the 3D printing process is highly automated, there is no need to put in tools and too many workers.

  • Make parts on demand

3D printing produces spare parts on demand based on digital files, with no mold required and no minimum purchase limit. At the same time, the prospect of 3D printing to manufacture large-scale parts is very broad.

  • Production of discontinued parts

For multiple industries, it is essential to have stable and reliable sources of spare parts. But sometimes manufacturers stop providing certain spare parts for some reason. 3D printing is based on digital manufacturing and is particularly suitable for the production of discontinued parts.

Advantages of 3D printing for spare parts

  • High efficiency

3D printing can quickly produce spare parts on demand, and can decentralize manufacturing nearby, avoiding long-distance transportation and greatly shortening the delivery time.

  • Reduce the cost

Traditional manufacturing methods require a large amount of inventory to ensure the supply of spare parts is sufficient. As a digital manufacturing technology, 3D printing can store some spare parts in virtual inventory and produce them when needed, and the whole process does not require molds, reducing costs and improving services.

  • Customizable

3D printing can choose high-performance materials for customized design and manufacturing according to the customer's specific needs and application scenarios, including spare parts from military products to cars or other commercial machines. At the same time, the prospect of 3D printing to manufacture large-scale parts is very broad.

  • High flexibility

3D printing can make spare parts of various shapes and sizes, and even the production of very complex part structures does not require molds, greatly improving the flexibility of production and the freedom of design.

  • Environmentally friendly

3D printing has a high material utilization rate, and you can choose degradable and environmentally friendly materials, reducing energy consumption and waste.

Environmentally friendly

Traditional spare parts management has multiple challenges, such as high inventory and logistics costs, overproduction, and long wait times. With our 3D printing services, you can avoid these problems. Digital production of spare parts has become a trend, giving you the opportunity to completely change the entire spare parts management method. You should definitely start thinking about it.
