Sourcing Irregular Parts

Solving supply chain issues

Tracking down old or irregular parts, which have low demand and high MOQs, are a supply chain nightmare. Our customer was trying to source a polyurethane buffer for a 1967 bogie. With no material data and only an old 2D drawing, it would be costly and time consuming to reproduce the part. Luckily, they contacted Chromatic.

• We created a 3D model

• Selected an equivalent printable material

• Produced and tested a new buffer

• Shipped directly to the customer

Do you need an obsolete part? Let Chromatic print parts for you, or install the RX-AM™ platform on location so you can 3D print parts locally. Email us at
