MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS) announced it has taken an order for five of its largest additive fabrication systems — FDM 900mc units — to be used expressly for direct digital manufacturing.
The customer is an unnamed Fortune 500 company, which will produce plastic parts for end use. This production method will replace traditional manufacturing methods.
The order is a part of the successful completion of a previously announced $3.6 Million R&D contract with the customer. The parties entered into the contract to advance the Stratasys FDM® process for direct digital manufacturing. Stratasys expects the customer to purchase several more FDM 900mc systems in the future.
