Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a global leader in applied additive technology solutions, announced a new metal additive manufacturing platform to displace conventional methods for short-run manufacturing.
The global market for metal additive manufacturing is projected to grow to $12 billion by 2028, according to industry estimates.
The metal Stratasys platform has been developed internally over the past several years, incorporating the company’s proprietary jetting technology. The platform was designed from inception short-run additive production, overcoming material limitations of currently available metal-based additive manufacturing systems. With this new technology, Stratasys believes it will offer customers a new ability to short-run manufacture metal parts made with commonly used powder metallurgy, starting with aluminum, at an economically competitive cost-per-part and throughput, with easy to implement post-processing and high part quality.
The Company’s new technology platform is being developed to directly address the needs of customers whose requirements include the production of pilot-series parts, small batch manufacturing during product ramp up and end-of-life, and custom, lightweight, and complex parts.
The Company will unveil further details about this new technology at the RAPID + TCT 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Conference, Booth#1104, taking place from April 23-26 in Fort Worth, Texas.
