Railtech and 3D printing

Rail technology and 3D printing go well together! Thanks to the good properties of materials such as plastic and metal, this technique is very suitable. Unique parts, spare parts, but also smaller series can be produced. Just in time and with optimal geometry. Due to these advantages it’s no surprise that NS and Deutsche Bahn use this technique. From housings, trays and buttons to metal models (brakes). 3D printing and maintenance of trains goes hand in hand.

Advantages railtech and 3D printing:

  • Fast delivery
  • ‘Just in time’
  • Smaller series possible or ‘one-offs’
  • Optimal stock
  • Optimal design in terms of material and functionality
