The MainChain journey began in 2019 with the French Army Staff (EMAT) and the Integrated Structure for the Maintenance of Land Equipment (SIMMT) as part of their feasibility tests for additive manufacturing in external operations.
The benefits for the Ministry of the Armed Forces are numerous: supply times are reduced from six to one week, production can be done on demand, on site or or more locally, with short transport times. This meets the target set by the French Military Planning Law to increase equipment availability by 5%.
Vistory supports maintenance units in finding solutions for remanufacturing obsolete parts required for the use of materials and equipment.
Parts are ordered via a secure digital warehouse by MainChain. The FastRepro service allows the reverse engineering of parts to be added to the system.
With the Mobile Clinics and soon the Cybertron factory, Vistory brings manufacturing closer to the need. Producing on demand, just what is needed and on site.
Vistory supports your industrial transition to a more cost-effective and sustainable production, based on the customers’ real needs. From designing your first part to integrating a secure on-demand distributed production ecosystem, Vistory assists you step by step.
When the armed forces discovered the potential of additive manufacturing to solve their maintenance problems, particularly in external operations, they were quickly confronted with the issue of security and industrial property rights of the industry. Since then, Vistory has been working with the Ministry of the Armed Forces on various projects to secure its move towards distributed production.
