Stratasys Ltd., the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, has recently declared that it is previewing demonstrations of next generation manufacturing technologies at IMTS 2016 as part of its SHAPING WHAT’S NEXT™ vision for manufacturing.
The Stratasys technology demonstrators are being displayed at the Stratasys IMTS booth, N-60, September 12-17. The Stratasys Infinite-Build 3D Demonstrator is designed to address the requirements of aerospace, automotive and other industries for large lightweight, thermoplastic parts with repeatable mechanical properties.
Boeing is currently using an Infinite-Build 3D Demonstrator to explore the production of low volume, lightweight parts. Ford and Stratasys will work together to test and develop new applications for automotive-grade 3D printed materials that were not previously possible due to limited size, enabling and accelerating innovative automotive product design.
Stratasys has also developed the Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator integrating its core additive manufacturing technologies with industrial motion control hardware and design-to-3D printing software capabilities provided by Siemens. This Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator is designed to revolutionize the 3D printing of composite parts.
In addition to the Infinite-Build and Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrators being featured in technology demonstrations, at IMTS 2016 Stratasys will be showcasing examples of 3D printing applications used today by Stratasys customers all over the world for tooling and manufacturing processes, including 3D printed Jigs & Fixtures, Composite Tooling, Mold Tooling and Production Parts.
