Why Stratasys has remained a world-leader in 3D printing for over 35 years

35+ years of experience and expertise

Stratasys are the world’s biggest commercial 3D printing brand and global leaders in additive manufacturing. They have delivered state-of-the-art 3D printing solutions to the largest customer installed base for over 35 years, using their innovation, knowledge and expertise to develop game-changing technologies, versatile materials and advanced software solutions.  

Breaking boundaries of 3D printing technologies

Stratasys is continuously pushing the boundaries of 3D printing. They continue to develop new, trailblazing technologies, including direct-to-textile 3D printing and OpenAM software, to increasingly customise and advance 3D printing processes and technological capabilities. Stratasys’ 3D printers remain a vital tool for research and development throughout industries across the world, providing state-of-the-art technology to facilitate innovation.

The most diverse 3D printing product portfolio in the world

Stratasys provides the widest range of 3D printing technologies, materials, and software solutions in the world. With PolyJet, FDM, P3, SLA and SAF technologies, Stratasys offers the largest selection of 3D printing solutions available, backed by a wide range of in-house printing materials and advanced software solutions. Stratasys’ 3D printing technologies are enabling world-leading industries to work faster and smarter, transforming the way products are designed, manufactured, and serviced.

Inventors of the world’s most widely used 3D printing technology

Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) 3D printing was invented by Stratasys founder, Scott Crump in 1988 and remains the most widely used 3D printing technology is the world. It allows designers and manufacturers to create complex parts with intricate geometries by building a part up layer by layer on the build platform, depositing and heating thermoplastic filaments until complete. Stratasys FDM 3D printing offers shorter lead times and lower production costs, making it a vital piece of equipment in industries including aerospace, automotive and medical.

Exclusive providers of multi-material 3D printing 

Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing is a world-leading 3D printing technology that offers exclusive multi-material capabilities in a single build. This means that Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers can produce highly detailed, complex parts in a vast variety of colour and material combinations, making them ideal for producing a wide range of realistic products and prototypes like never before. Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers are faster, more efficient, and more versatile than other 3D printing technologies, making them the world leader in 3D printing.

World renowned customers 

Stratasys’s decades of technical knowledge, innovation, training, developments and support have resulted in them being trusted by pioneering companies and industry giants including Volvo, Ford, Honda, Airbus, Siemens, and Lockheed Martin. These companies rely on Stratasys 3D printing technologies and software to work faster, more creatively and with reduced costs to stay at the forefront of their industry competition.
