New Materials and Tech Enhance Stratasys Additive Manufacturing

Stratasys Expands 3D Printing Capabilities with New Updates

Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS) announces significant updates to its Industrial and Healthcare Business Unit products, and Stratasys Direct, including a new open platform for the F900™ 3D printer, enhanced on-demand 3D printing capabilities, and a new high-performance material for its Fused Deposition Modeling line. These updates, driven by customer feedback, aim to enhance additive manufacturing capabilities and accelerate product market readiness.

OpenAM for F900

Stratasys OpenAM™ software, which allows users to modify machine controls beyond standard settings, is now available for the F900 printer. Previously available for the Fortus 450®mc printer, this expansion offers increased functionality and material options for F900 users.

New VICTREX AM 200 Material for FDM

The introduction of VICTREX AM™ 200, a high-performance PEEK-based polymer, enhances application potential in demanding industries like aerospace and medical. Available for the Fortus 450mc and F900, this material boasts temperature, corrosion, and chemical resistance, along with excellent mechanical properties.

Carbon Fiber Visual Print Option for F-Series

A new 5-slice (0.005”) layer height Carbon Fiber Visual Print Option for the F-123 Series™ will be available later this month for FDM®ABS-CF10. This option provides a smoother surface finish, ideal for applications requiring both durability and visual appeal without post-processing.

F770 Adds New Colors

The F770® printer now supports printing in six new ASA colors: red, white, light gray, black, blue, and yellow, in addition to the original ivory. This expands application versatility with FDM® ASA and ABS-M30 engineering plastics, enabling faster part availability without post-production marking.

Somos NeXt Validated for SLA

Somos® NeXt™, a strong resin suitable for automotive, consumer products, and prototyping, is now validated for Stratasys NEO® stereolithography 3D printers. This material produces durable, accurate, and detailed parts.

GrabCAD Software Print Integration

Stratasys introduces Parts on Demand by GrabCAD, integrating its software platform with Stratasys Direct. This allows GrabCAD Print™ customers access to Stratasys Direct’s extensive 3D printer fleet, over 50 engineered materials, and stringent quality inspections for larger and more intricate designs.

Rich Garrity, Chief Industrial Business Officer at Stratasys, states, “These upgrades and enhancements reflect customer feedback, helping them better meet their additive manufacturing needs. Additive manufacturing is evolving to work alongside traditional manufacturing, and our new products and updates strengthen our role in this ecosystem.
