Additive manufacturing (AM) has already revolutionized the area of industrial design and prototyping. Could replacement parts be next?
For the marine, mining, and offshore oil and gas industries where access to replacement parts becomes a challenge, onsite additive manufacturing could significantly reduce expensive downtime.
Lloyd’s Register believes that shipping containers are the logical choice to hold a self-contained remote AM facility. They’re large enough to hold most equipment required for manufacture of parts, they can be easily connected to a power source, produced to be fire-resistant and durable to extreme conditions, and of course, they’re very portable.
