The plan is to in either case “meet customers’ needs


very quickly” because products printed in the factory as late as midnight each day can be fl own to the customer the next morning, he said. UPS plans to, in partnership with SAP and Fast Radius, build another 3D printing factory in Singapore this year, UPS said in September. UPS bought an equity position in Fast Radius, Chung said in an interview with Smart Manu- facturing magazine. He declined to specify the investment. “We’re now able to do on-demand manufacturing,” he


said at the conference in Indiana. That means customers can augment their core production capabilities with UPS. UPS already had the ability to help customers with light


assembly and repair work through its contract logistics divi- sion. Fast Radius will help provide customer consultation on design alternatives and production techniques. The Fast Ra- dius crew can recommend the appropriate 3D printing pro- cess, such as fused deposition modeling, stereolithography, selective laser sintering, polyjet or direct metal laser sinter- ing, Chung said in the interview with Smart Manufacturing. One way the “3D printing factory” could be used is for long-tail service parts inventory. Customers could stop holding inventory for many low-demand spare parts and instead “just store scans of the spare parts and print them off as needed,” Chung said at the conference. “There are a lot of challenges in the supply chain,” he


added. “There are high inventory costs. There are long lead times. With this new capability and moving this effi ciency frontier out, we can now re-think the old adage ‘faster, bet- ter, cheaper–pick any two’.” Distributed, on-demand, 3D printing has moved “be- yond the polymer stage,” Chung said. “We can do things

with advanced thermoplastics and metals and things that are beyond what you are familiar with in terms of smaller 3-D printers. We can do things like mass customization and actually fulfi ll that promise of having similar types of prod- ucts, all slightly diff erent for meeting a variety of diff erent customers’ requirements.” UPS, he pointed out, last year had $58 billion in revenue,


and $9.5 billion was not from delivering small packages. The company is now pushing the concept of “smart op-


erations,” which he said “integrates the entire supply chain, allowing for more fl exible and nimble adjustments amid changing conditions” like mass customization.
