Summary

Germany’s national railway provider, Deutsche Bahn, the largest rail company in Europe, knew it needed to be proactive to find a solution to produce spare parts faster, with fewer supply chain disruptions and a lower total cost of ownership. Working with 3YOURMIND, Deutsche Bahn looked to additive manufacturing to make parts in less time, closer to the part’s required end-use, and with less capital in storing overstock parts. Read the full case study to learn more about their amazing results.

Like many companies within the railway industry, Deutsche Bahn’s fleet of trains and passenger cars is aging, which makes it challenging to find suppliers with legacy spare parts in stock. Deutsche Bahn knew it needed to be proactive to find a solution to produce spare parts faster, with fewer supply chain disruptions and a lower total cost of ownership.
