Siemens deploys 3D printers to fabricate spare parts for a 30-year rail maintenance project in Russia

March 17, 2020 | Case Study

There is a constant need for additional parts in the rail industry. For example, high-speed trains often need replacement parts with a quick turnaround time. Because of the structural complexity and unique nature of these parts, traditional manufacturing technologies often cannot meet the requirements in a timely fashion, and keeping spares of all relevant parts is costly and impractical. With the development of industrial-grade 3D printing, service providers are increasingly relying on 3D printing to bring down costs and save time.
