Reflecting an eagerness to return to Frankfurt with a bang, Stratasys will use Formnext (16-19 November 2021) as the European debut of the largest collection of new technologies, printers, materials and software in the company’s history as it executes on its strategy to move from prototyping into volume production with polymer 3D printing solutions.
Demonstrating its hallmark for delivering innovation that directly meets users’ needs, Stratasys will showcase recently announced technologies that provide a genuine and much sought-after thrust for manufacturers seeking production-level throughput, increased part quality and larger part size.
The industrial-level 3D printing solutions on show collectively for the first time in Europe include:
The Stratasys Origin® One 3D printer – designed for end-use manufacturing applications, the Origin One produces high volume parts in a wide range of open, certified third-party materials with industry-leading accuracy, detail, finish, repeatability, and time to part.
The Stratasys H350 3D printer – uses SAF™ technology to give manufacturers production consistency, a competitive and predictable cost per part, and complete control for the output of thousands of end-use parts spanning applications including covers, connectors, hinges, cable holders, electronics housings, and ducting.
The Stratasys F770 FDM® 3D printer –builds on Stratasys’ reputation for repeatability and reliability via industrial-grade FDM technology. Ideal for big parts, this newest FDM 3D printer features the longest fully heated build chamber on the market and a generous build volume of almost 0.4 cubic meters.
As well as accelerating the shift from traditional to additive manufacturing for production applications, Stratasys remains committed to making ultra-realistic prototyping capabilities more accessible to product designers than ever before.
At Formnext, this will be exemplified by the company’s multi-material J35™ Pro and J55™ Prime 3D printers, introduced earlier this year to help designers and engineers quickly and efficiently create realistic ultra-realistic models and prototypes in an office-friendly environment. Both on show for the first time at a major international tradeshow, the J35 Pro represents the first multi-material 3D printer for the desktop from Stratasys, while the equally affordable J55 Prime includes a new set of versatile materials providing tactile, textual, and sensory capabilities in addition to full color.
Expanding software ecosystem to drive Industry 4.0
Formnext visitors will also be able to hear how Stratasys’ expanding GrabCAD Software Partner Program – which recently added Manufacturing Execution System (MES) provider, AMFG –enables customers to integrate additive manufacturing into their Industry 4.0 initiatives.
Additionally, Stratasys’ stand will feature new 3D printed customer application projects, , as well as cutting-edge work from one of Europe’s premier award-winning design agencies.
“Although for many, life has largely been put on hold since we were last in Frankfurt, Stratasys has certainly not taken its foot off the gas,” says Andy Langfeld, President EMEA, Stratasys. “On the contrary, over the course of the past two years we have accelerated our R&D programs to deliver genuine innovation across the value chain. We continue to make the most advanced full-color, multi-material 3D printing capabilities more accessible to product designers than ever before, while delivering brand new technology breakthroughs to accelerate the industry’s shift into volume production. Visitors to Formnext won’t be disappointed.”
