Blockchain & Supply Chain
3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing of industrial parts, creating lighter and stronger parts and digitizing the manufacturing process. Blockchain provides a layer of security and trust to the transfer of printing information as well as the collection of data during the printing process.
Companies must trust their suppliers as they struggle to maintain visibility over their entire supply chain. Blockchain provides that transparency and supplier trust, creating an immutable and open chain of information for companies to track their products from their origin.
Using IoT devices adds another layer of information to the supply chain. These devices use sensors to track temperature, location, humidity, and other important data points to manage the integrity of products. Incorporating this data on the traceability blockchain gives companies an inside look at their supply chain.
