Stratasys, a provider of 3D polymer printing solutions, will showcase additive manufacturing solutions for every stage of the product value chain at Formnext (November 15 – 18, Frankfurt, Germany) under the theme “Let’s Talk Manufacturing”. These include an expanded materials portfolio and the “P3 Automated Production Cell,” a demonstration project to improve efficiency in the operation of multiple Origin® One 3D printers.
The future of manufacturing becomes reality
The “P3 Automated Production Cell” demonstration project at the Stratasys booth (Hall 12.1, D121) is designed to automate the transport of parts between multiple 3D printers and post-processing facilities for cleaning, drying and curing. The goal is to significantly reduce the amount of work involved in scaling 3D printing in factories.
Driving urban mobility
Stratasys will also showcase its support for urban mobility innovation with a new vehicle category at its booth. The working prototype was developed by a Stratasys customer using both 3D printing and traditional manufacturing.
Materials driving manufacturing growth
With the goal of enabling manufacturing customers to deploy new applications with demanding requirements faster and more efficiently, Stratasys has continued to expand its materials ecosystem through new partnerships and third-party material options. Materials on display include Stratasys preferred and validated materials for Stratasys 3D printers based on five different 3D printing technologies: Stereolithography, SAF™, FDM®, P3™ and PolyJet™. These include materials provided by partners such as Arkema/Kimya, Victrex plc, and Covestro.
“Over the past two and a half years, our focus has expanded from building our hardware portfolio to working with key industry partners to develop a broad range of application-specific solutions. These complete solutions include hardware, software, materials and services that open new business opportunities for our customers,” said Andy Langfeld, president EMEA at Stratasys. “We continue to accelerate breakthrough developments in additive manufacturing and advance our strategy to offer the industry’s best and most comprehensive portfolio for polymer 3D printing.”
