Speaking about how Stratasys is advancing the use of additive manufacturing into mainstream manufacturing by launching state-of-the-art additive manufacturing solutions for final part production, Keith Kmetz of IDC – a consulting firm, said, “What’s really exciting about this development is that Stratasys is showing how additive manufacturing has finally reached the level of repeatability and performance required for final part production.”

“With the introduction of the F900 Production 3D Printer and the focus on industry standards and standardization, Stratasys is helping to advance this technology from its prototyping and tooling roots to a true industrial additive manufacturing system,” Kmetz added.

In addition to unveiling the new solutions, Stratasys also announced that its manufacturing services division, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, is now offering parts built with FDM Nylon 12CF. The Nylon 12CF is ideal for functional prototypes and production parts in high-requirement applications.
