Stratasys, leader in applied additive technologies, announced that at this year’s JEC World (March 6th – 8th) will show the capabilities of additive manufacturing for composite production (from composite tooling applications to final part production) .
Visitors will have the opportunity to see the Fortus 450mc Production 3D Printer running live on stand, demonstrating the ability to rapidly address high-temperature composite applications in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional production methods.
Stratasys’ development of high-temperature materials, as well as the increased throughput of its Production 3D Printers, enable the manufacture of high-temperature lay-up / sacrificial tooling in hours or days, rather than the weeks or months it would take to produce and procure tooling made from traditional methods. 3D printed tooling also offers disruptive cost-savings compared to traditional tooling materials and numerous other less quantified benefits, such as dramatic weight savings.
Visitors to Stratasys’ stand will discover how these durable, yet lightweight 3D printed composite tools are being utilised across a range of industry sectors and will hear real-life customer examples exemplifying the benefits of additive manufacturing for composite production, including McLaren Racing, Edalis, Swift Engineering, and Champion Motorsport Porsche.
