Stratasys, Ltd. announced that the inaugural formnext 2015 exhibition (Frankfurt, November 17th-20th) will see the company demonstrate how its full additive manufacturing ecosystem is transforming business models, impacting virtually every step of the supply chain, from design to production through services. At Formnext, companies of any size or additive manufacturing requirement will have direct access to the full range of Stratasys solutions, from entry-level 3D printers to factory-workhorse 3D production systems, right through to high-level consultancy from Strategic Consulting and Professional Services.
On what will be its largest ever presence (Hall 3.1, Stand G40), Stratasys will display an all-in-one showcase of the company’s extensive and wide-ranging offering. This line-up includes the latest 3D printing systems and materials, streamlined workflows through partnerships and collaboration with key CAD software vendors, and Strategic Consultancy and Professional Services. These 3D printing solutions equip designers, engineers and manufacturers with easy-access to the required tools, solutions and know-how to create accurate 3D printed prototypes, tooling, production parts and processes, in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
“The shape of Stratasys’ offering to the marketplace has expanded considerably in recent times, as has the range of solutions, systems and services we are able to offer customers. We believe that we are now better placed than ever to deliver customers additive manufacturing solutions throughout the value chain – regardless of their size,” explains Andy Middleton, President, Stratasys, EMEA.
“This includes strategic consultancy, where we work with companies to build a strategy around additive manufacturing, while our Stratasys Direct Manufacturing service offers easy access to customized 3D printed prototypes and production parts. Our proposition continues through to the implementation stage where we provide on-site expertise via Professional Services and collaborations with worldwide software vendors – such as Adobe and PTC – streamline the process when designing for additive manufacturing. Combine all these facets with our advanced 3D printing systems and materials, and you have a solution for everyone all under one roof,” he continues.
