Case Study: Evinrude Spare Replacement Part

A customer had a broken obsolete replacement part. It was for a 1971 Evinrude four stroke outboard. IMAP was able to reproduce the design in cad data. Next, 3D print a suitable replacement out of PLA. While this may be a one off project, IMAP has the capabilities to review your companies spares or replacement service parts, and develop a plan to print spares on demand, so that you don’t waste money stacking it up on the warehouse shelf. The best time for this is during the development phase, when the aftermarket part can be designed and tested along with the OEM production part.
