Discontinued spare parts supply is an important issue that constantly presents new challenges to industry. Stockpiling is becoming more expensive and the rights to use the tools for the required spare parts have expired or the tools have already been destroyed.
In our example we are dealing with a component of a box lock. The spare part is required in large quantities, for example in regional buses. The original lock latch was manufactured in zinc die casting.
With the ExAM 255, a spare part made of steel can be produced, whereby a longer service life is achieved.
Many industrially used die-cast parts can already be printed cost-effectively in our CEM process. This also applies to other industries.
