Traditionally, repairing equipment in the field is an involved endeavor. Suitable tools are often not on hand and if custom hardware is needed for the repair, time and labor must be spent producing it. By the time the necessary tools arrive at the site, weeks of costly downtime may have already passed.
Markforged industrial 3D printers provide the opportunity to create customized repair tools anywhere, and with minimal skilled labor. 3D printing allows for parts to be created onsite, shortening lead times and minimizing shipping requirements. Customization is cheaper and easier with additive manufacturing, which allows for more useful tools that simplify restoration and reduce downtime.
