3D printing production parts has become an increasingly mainstream operation for companies requiring on-demand components
Stratasys 3D printing for production parts
Why use 3D printing technology for production parts?
The 3D-printing revolution has allowed for the timely and affordable production of geometrically complex parts in low volumes, much faster than is possible with traditional tooling and moulding.
Stratasys solutions can create the most durable, stable and repeatable models in the industry, using advanced materials that cater for every need.
- Direct digital manufacturing means engineers are free to create 3D printed parts with organic and complex shapes
- In-house, fast, on-demand production leads to less time-consuming and more manageable inventories
- Serve a variety of tasks in the medical industry, including biomechanically realistic practice dummies, educational aids and pre-operative planning
Huge library of materials for all use cases
Huge library of materials to produce custom housings and enclosures to match individual specifications (consumer electronics, medical equipment, automotive parts, sports equipment, aerospace components, MRI and CT scanning machines and heavy construction equipment). Use exceptional FST-rated materials like Nylon 12 and ULTEM 9085 resin to ensure superior strength, durability and heat-resistant parts – perfect for ECS ducting, for example.
Cost effective. Flexible.
Traditional methods of producing components and parts are slow, inflexible and expensive. Additive Manufacturing is fast and cost-effective for low-volume manufacturing or prototyping. Small batch sizes can dramatically reduce costs and improve margins. In addition, the ability to produce many prototypes quickly can greatly improve product quality and reduce time-to-market for new products and services.
Complex parts made better and faster
Stratasys 3D printers are able to produce complex geometries much more quickly than through traditional manufacturing methods. For example, a 3D printed model of a turbine blade can take days rather than weeks to produce due to the time required to design, tool and mould the part. The reduction in time and cost makes the technology attractive for both high and low volume production runs.
Create smooth 3D printed production parts with a Stratasys 3D printer, combining speed and high-resolution for stunning 3D printed parts that are bigger and better than ever. Produce 3D printed parts exactly to specification, bringing your ideas to life in record time.
