New business from digital spare parts
AbstractThe report summarises the results of the New Business From Digital Spare Parts project (DIVALIITO), managed and implemented by VTT and Aalto University during the years 2018-2020. In the project, methods for identification of 3D printable parts from the spare parts libraries were developed, and information available on materials for additive manufacturing were compiled, produced and compared with the conventional manufacturing materials and methods. New spare part concepts such as smart spare parts with embedded intelligence were investigated, and the connections of the process steps of the whole manufacturing chain of the digital spare part were clarified, especially from the workflow, quality control and automation perspectives. The report is a compilation of results and it contains links to original documents where the results are presented more widely.
