Expanded materials and technology updates bring new opportunities for Stratasys customers

Share This Post

New material options and technological advancements are set to boost additive manufacturing capabilities across the FDM range of Stratasys 3D printers.

Stratasys has announced that OpenAM is available for the F900 3D printer, allowing for expanded functionality and providing users with the ability to unlock a wide range of new materials.

OpenAM is a software application that enables the user to modify machine controls to achieve results beyond standard print settings. Already available on the Fortus 450mc, OpenAM will provide users with even more capability on the industrial-scale F900 system.

Stratasys has also announced a brand-new material for its Fortus 450mc and F900 models, new colour options on the F770 and a new print slice option on the F-Series to produce a smoother surface finish.

Rob Thompson, Group Sales Director of SYS Systems’ parent company, the Carfulan Group, said: “We are excited to bring these new offerings to the UK and Ireland market and we believe it can offer a wide range of benefits to our customers.

“We are pleased that Stratasys has addressed customer feedback in introducing these new options, allowing our customers to maximise their potential with 3D printing to bring products to market faster.”

The all-new VICTREX AM 200 material is a high-performance, high-strength, validated material, and is perfect for demanding industries such as aerospace and medical where material properties are critical components of a 3D-printed solution.

VICTREX AM 200 is a PEEK-based polymer that is temperature, corrosion and chemical resistant, with excellent mechanical properties which can be utilised with soluble and breakaway support material.

F770 users now have greater choice when it comes to material colours, with six new options available in ASA material. Adding to the original ivory colour, Stratasys has now introduced red, white, light grey, black, blue and yellow to allow for more application versatility.

The new colours enable printing without painting or other post-production marking, allowing parts to be available much faster, increasing productivity.

Users printing with FDM ABS-CF10 material will be able to utilise the new Carbon Fibre Visual Print Option, a new 5-slice (0.005”) layer height across the F-Series 3D printers.

It produces a smoother surface finish, to provide the perfect finish when a part’s visual appearance is important to the application.

It is built for applications that demand the durability of a carbon-filled polymer, but also requires a visually appealing result without additional post-processing.
