Latest technological trends are being introduced for the ever-suffering oil and gas industry in 2020. 3D printing is one of the newest additions to the list. Additive manufacturing has gained immense traction, and it has been very useful during the Covid19 crisis. But now, this groundbreaking technology is being used to innovate in the energy sector. This year we have seen that several companies have printed supplies for parts that are hard to print due to the delay in delivery and pandemic restrictions. This move has removed the need for reliance on other companies or importing from other countries. Furthermore, it must be noted that the majority of the parts required can be printed in-house to improve the inventory process for the companies.

The companies must create digital inventories to make sure they can effectively manage the additives. The main idea behind this is to create a database of the important parts that are required, manufacturing process, and design. This will assist the company in their endeavor to create a spare part that they might need. 3D printing process might, however, feel very expensive, but it can be useful when for you, particularly when you need a part that is impossible to find.
