Advanced Technology Services (ATS) formed a partnership with 3Discovered, an industrial 3D-printing services platform, to offer 3D-printed factory equipment replacement parts to its MRO (maintenance repair and operations) customers. The partnership will expand ATS’ factory maintenance and industrial parts services by overcoming the critical delays involved with obtaining rare, obsolete or hard-to-find parts.

3Discovered is an exchange platform that facilitates the buying, selling and making of commercial-grade 3D-printed parts and products. Through its network of partners, 3Discovered can quickly and economically provide ATS and its industrial customers with top-quality replacement parts for almost any kind of equipment or usage environment.

Effective immediately, ATS will offer its 3D-printed replacement parts service through its Industrial Parts Services division. The company will start with hard-to-find parts and accessories for aged machinery and legacy manufacturing plants before expanding its offerings.
