Stratasys, a leading manufacturer of polymer 3D printing systems, is releasing three new 3D printers. This move aims to gain a foothold in the additive manufacturing industry.
The Stratasys Origin One 3D Printer was designed with end-use production in mind. To manufacture parts at large, the device employs Origin’s P3 software and cloud-based applications. In May, the Origin One 3D Printer is going to be up in the market.
The Stratasys H350 3D Printer is the first in Stratasys’ H Series Product Platform, which utilizes SAF technology. The system is intended to deliver production-quality components at a consistent cost per item.
Since 2021, the printer has been in trial with contract manufacturers and service bureaus. It produces pieces like cable holders, connectors, covers, ducting, and electronics housings.
The Stratasys F770 FDM 3D printer is developed to print massive industrial pieces. A heated construction chamber with a capacity of 13 cubic feet is included. Prototyping, tooling for thermoplastics, and fixtures are all possible with the printer, which costs under $100,000.
The unit also works with GrabCAD Print and integrates with business workflow software. The printer’s beta client was the Sub-Zero Group, which is famous for its high-end appliances.
Additive manufacturing will scale up, according to Dr. Yoav Zief, Stratasys’ CEO, because existing supply chains struggle to satisfy demand. The systems are being introduced by Stratasys to solve different aspects of additive manufacturing.
Zeif said, “We are accelerating into the Additive Manufacturing 2.0 era, in which we see global manufacturing leaders move beyond prototyping to fully embrace the agility that 3D printing brings to the entire manufacturing value chain.”
“The disruptions we are seeing today on both the supply and demand side of global supply chains are a clear sign that the status quo isn’t working. Additive manufacturing gives companies the total flexibility to decide when, where, and how to produce parts. That’s why we’re committed to being the complete provider of polymer 3D printing solutions for our world-class customer base.”
The firm is expected to generate $562.9 million in sales in 2021. It is also up against several competitors, which are now public firms or will be shortly by contracts from special purpose acquisition company (SPAC).
Stratasys has industrial and additive manufacturing solutions in main industry sectors like automobile and aviation, so it’s indicating that it’ll ramp up its game to mass-produce items. Manufacturing-related technologies now account for 25% of Stratasys’ revenue.
