Printing Twins: The agricultural equipment manufacturer developing a digital warehouse of back-up 3D printed parts

Since the start of 2023, CNH has been working with Materialiseโ€™s Mindware additive manufacturing consulting team, assessing how it can grow its additive manufacturing (AM) application to safeguard its supply chain. The company first adopted AM in 2008 for prototyping, and in recent years has begun applying the technology to tooling and spare parts. Functional parts โ€“ designed with the technology in mind from the start โ€“ are on the agenda, as is the development of โ€˜AM twinsโ€™. Because, another question CNH has been asking itself is, if its supply chain breaks down somewhere, โ€˜Is there any backup solution?โ€™ And โ€˜Could additive manufacturing be an alternative to the conventional market?โ€™ The answer was yes. Materialise was thus looped into the process of identifying applications that can be manufactured with AM, with the view of designing back-up solutions in case of any supply chain issues.

Peter Ommeslag, Director Supply Chain Manufacturing Systems and Tools for CNH Industrial, anticipates that up to 40% of parts manufactured or provided by CNH could be a fit for AM, with between 80-85 AM twins already designed, pending quality checks. CNH is already using AM to produce 250 different spare parts โ€“ most of them being polymer components, and most of them being non-critical units like covers, hoods, and pipes โ€“ but with its AM twins project is now aiming to reinforce its supply chain.
