Replique, a provider of a secure 3D printing platform that makes OEM part management more efficient and sustainable, will use Formnext 2022 to launch RSure, an innovative quality tracking module that allows OEMs to directly track each of their 3D printed parts and ensure that final parts meet required quality requirements.
RSure enables OEMs to set quality specifications, perform digital inspections, and track parts produced by Replique before they are shipped to customers. Replique’s industrial 3D printing platform will feature the new module (Booth B73, Hall 12.1).

RSure will also allow OEMs to include additional quality checks on 3D printed parts for service bureaus to perform, such as various certified measurements, functional tests, and image upload to the OEM’s digital library on Replique. OEMs can access and view this information remotely at any time using the secure platform.
Visitors to Formnext 2022 will be able to put Replique’s encrypted ordering process to the test, which ensures parts are printed in the required quantity and quality, by ordering a free 3D-printed give-away produced on-site. This will also allow for a more in-depth examination of the company’s digital inventory, which allows part designs to be stored, managed, and ordered internally.
Visitors will also be able to learn about specific consumer and industrial customer application projects. Among these is a recent Alstom example involving a doorstopper as the first serial metal part on rolling stock. This was qualified and manufactured using the metal filament Ultrafuse ® 316L by Forward AM, a BASF 3D Printing Solutions GmbH brand.
Print farm view of the Replique platform: Print order encryption ensures that the print farm can only produce parts with the specified quality and quantity. The Replique platform keeps track of all production information.
“As part of BASF, we know that industrial companies need standardized and repeatable production processes, especially when it comes to decentralized manufacturing. With our end-to-end solution we can ensure traceability, while providing repeatable quality and secure encryption of 3D printed parts.”– Max Siebert, co-founder and CEO of Replique
Replique’s solution is suitable for both B2B and B2C businesses, and the use cases presented at Formnext only cover a limited number of applications. The collaboration with H. Gautzsch Company Group, in particular, demonstrates the Replique platform’s extensive capabilities for internal and external ordering and fulfilment, as does the project with premium home appliance manufacturer, Miele.
About Replique: Replique was founded by BASF employees from the fields of material science and digitization. Their plan was to digitise and produce parts on demand, making them available at any time and from any location. To realise this vision, the team joined Chemovator GmbH, BASF’s internal venture builder, in 2020.
