London, March 2024: AMFG is thrilled to announce that CARLAYERS have chosen to implement our additive manufacturing solution, with our Standard Package and Smart Online RFQ Portal

CARLAYERS employs advanced 3D printing technologies to manufacture top-tier spare parts, prototypes, and small production runs with unparalleled speed. The company’s product portfolio spans from traditional automotive spare parts to cutting-edge industrial prototypes for emerging product developments. Leveraging diverse 3D printing methods such as FDM, SLA, and SLS, CARLAYERS ensures the production of a wide array of objects with unique material properties and surfaces, showcasing exceptional flexibility. The company’s capability, enhanced by AMFG, allows for the swift delivery of components and prototypes.

Beyond 3D printing, CARLAYERS extends its offerings to include complementary services like reverse engineering, 3D scanning, and product development. This comprehensive approach, coupled with additive manufacturing, enables the rapid and high-quality production of prototypes, components, and spare parts. The combination of cutting-edge technology and supplementary services positions CARLAYERS as a leading provider in the industry, delivering innovative solutions with efficiency and precision.

The Problem

 

Commenting on the state of their RFQ process Founder and Commercial Manager of CARLAYERS, Ben Sagemüller stated, “It took us a lot of time to calculate 3D printing orders, send out offers and keep our customers up to date with their orders. Most of the day was spent sending emails back and forth, populating Excel spreadsheets and other task software. There was no central contact point for all projects, we had to keep collecting the right data and had various isolated solutions for individual areas.

The second problem was that simple contact forms are difficult to use for lead generation when it comes to 3D printing inquiries. Information is often missing, or there is something wrong with the CAD data or something else. This often ended up in endless email correspondence – time-consuming and nerve-wracking. In a nutshell, too much time was spent on simple activities such as creating offers and internal order processing & no user-friendly solution for new customers to place an order with us.”

The Solution

 

CARLAYERS provides a diverse collection of meticulously crafted and durable spare parts suitable for both classic and contemporary vehicles, all developed with a global perspective. These spare parts are engineered to meet the unique demands of various vehicles and industrial applications, offering unparalleled precision and longevity.

CARLAYERS specializes in providing high-quality prototypes. Their services encompass visual and mechanical prototyping, delivering precision prototypes within a remarkably short timeframe—typically one business day—to expedite development and manufacturing processes.

In order to provide the best service to their customers, CARLAYERS needed a manufacturing software solution to streamline and supercharge its production and quoting processes. Ben Sagemüller explains why he chose AMFG, “AMFG offers us a holistic system and now acts as the core of our daily business. All order data is gathered in one place (whether via email, online orders or manually entered), emails such as order confirmations and shipping confirmations are sent automatically and the ticket status provides an overall overview for every team member so that there is always absolute clarity applies to every order. In addition, through the front end, AMFG offers both new and existing customers the opportunity to elegantly place orders, have CAD objects calculated independently, and have an overview of the orders placed at any time. This significantly reduces our email traffic and allows us to work much more efficiently.”

The Result

 

Having reached over 12 countries, CARLAYERS’ optimized spare parts have already gained traction, with shipments to numerous satisfied customers. Over 5,000 cars globally are equipped with these high-quality spare parts, reflecting the reliability of these components, as evidenced by a remarkable 98% positive feedback from users. We hope this success will continue with the implementation of AMFG’s software. 

Following the successful implementation of AMFG’s software and a swift onboarding process, Ben Sagemüller commented on how AMFG has enhanced CARLAYERS’ operations: “By embracing the capabilities of AMFG, our operations have witnessed a substantial increase in time efficiency and gained a clearer perspective on the entire order landscape. The adoption of uniform calculations for 3D printing orders not only streamlines the process but also minimizes email traffic. 

Shifting the responsibility of cost calculations and quotation preparation from production to administration has not only enhanced our overall efficiency but also eliminated the need for extensive 3D printing expertise when creating offers or conducting calculations, thanks to the stored formulas in AMFG.

We accomplished a nearly automatic data transfer, simplifying not only our quoting procedures but also easing the intricacies of the accounting process.

Alexander Grimmer, AMFG’s Technical Consultant responsible for CARLAYERS, stated “I am thrilled to share the successful onboarding of Carlayers onto AMFG’s automation software. As the implementation consultant, I facilitated a seamless setup over 5 weeks. We are excited about how our software empowers Carlayers to elevate their business with our instant quotation tool, boosting conversion rates. The integration with their accounting software ensures an effortless process without manual intervention, from pricing to order intake, customer management, and invoicing. A truly enjoyable and efficient onboarding experience.”
