In contrast to conventional production methods, economies of scale do not apply to additive manufacturing. This means the cost per unit is not dependent on the number of units, which makes cost-effective small series possible. In turn, this opens up new applications such as digital spare parts management. Spare parts are stored digitally and produced individually when required. This focus topic presents interesting examples of small series.
