On April 28, 2021, Stratasys introduced three new 3D printers that together will have a significant impact on the multi-billion end-use parts market. Probably the most sophisticated virtual press conference in the era of covid freedom has done this. A common feature of the new systems is a faster transition from traditional production to additive production in the area of ​​small and medium series.

According to Dr. Yoava Zeifa, CEO of Stratasys, aims to accelerate the era of additive manufacturing 2.0, which gives manufacturing companies more flexibility on a global scale. Additive manufacturing gives companies complete flexibility to decide when, where and how to produce parts, which is why Stratasys is committed to providing complete polymer 3D printing solutions to customers around the world. Revenue from manufacturing applications accounted for more than 25% of Stratasys revenue last year. Going forward, revenue from this segment is expected to grow faster than other areas of the company’s portfolio, which includes hardware, software, materials and services for 3D printing, according to Stratasys estimates. The production services segment is expected to reach 20% year-on-year growth in 2022.

Stratasys Origin One – 3D printing for detailed and complex parts

Origin One-Triple Straight on-2119Through a quick acquisition, Stratasys and Origin have already introduced the new Origin One 3D printer for end-of-life production. This 3D printer uses original P3 technology and a special software architecture to produce parts in a wide range from a range of certified third-party materials, which are characterized by excellent precision, level of detail, surface quality and repeatability. This technology, combined with hardware innovation, has allowed Stratasys to optimize virtually every element of a system that is more reliable and powerful in the new version. Thanks to the connection to the cloud, users of this 3D printer will also see more improvements in the future.
TE-2119 ConnectorsThe Stratasys Origin One printer has already been praised by TE Connectivity, which uses 3D printing with very high precision and repeatability in the production of connectors requiring precision of one hundred micrometers.
Stratasys hardware, software and materials are entering the mass production realm, which they can use here and believe they will be able to more flexibly and cost-effectively meet the demands of major automakers and global aerospace companies that use their products.
Stratasys internally estimates that by 2025 there is $3.7 billion in market potential in the automotive, consumer goods, medical device, dental applications and instrument manufacturing segments. . These are a number of opportunities for Origin One technology.

New H350 3D printer with SAF technology

StratasysTK043-H350-2119Stratasys also introduced the first new H-Series 3D printer, which is a stand-alone production platform. Using SAF technology, the new H350 3D printer enables mass production of end-use parts. It is designed to enable manufacturers to achieve consistent productivity and competitive yet predictable prices per part produced, with full control over the production of thousands of parts. The H350 3D printer alone uses at least a dozen different parts made with SAF technology. The H350 3D printer has been used by several service centers and 3D printing manufacturers in Europe, Israel and the United States in test mode since the beginning of 2021.
It should be delivered to customers as standard from the fall of this year. Applications for these printed parts include, for example, the manufacture of covers, connectors, cable trays, electronic covers and raceways.
Product StratasysTK062 Goetz Maschinenbau-2119Mention was made here of Goetz Maschinenbau, a German manufacturing services provider that has ambitious plans to expand its business and believes the Stratasys H350 can be a key driver for growth. It is increasingly in demand for the production of large parts as well as for smaller series of hundreds of parts. The performance achieved with consistent production productivity with SAF technology impressed the company, as well as the reliability of this system.
Stratasys uses certified third-party materials for H-Series systems. The starting material is Stratasys PA11, which is a castor oil-based bioplastic.

FDM F770 3D printer – simplified work with large parts

Stratasys F770-2119The third system introduced is the Stratasys F770 3D printer, which uses industrial FDM technology. It is primarily designed for large parts and therefore features the widest (X-dimension) fully heated build chamber among Stratasys FDM printers and a generous build volume of 0.34 m³. This new system, priced under $100,000, is designed to produce prototypes, jigs, fixtures and tooling applications that require the use of standard thermoplastics. Post-processing is simplified with soluble support material and workflows are optimized with GrabCAD Print software.

The American company Sub-Zero Group, which produces luxury goods, was introduced as one of the first users of the Stratasys F770 3D printer. Thanks to this device, the company is able to produce large-sized parts within its own company, which saves up to 40% in costs. Its 3D printing lab encounters new types of products every six weeks. The best and fastest way to deal with this is to do as many things as possible at home. And that’s exactly what the F770 gives them.
