New @Stratasys systems bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products

Stratasys worked closely with Siemens to develop the Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator's technology. Siemens' industrial motion control hardware for the robotics, plus its CNC automation and PLM workflow software for design and manufacturing, were integrated with Stratasys' core advanced additive manufacturing FDM technologies, said Arun Jain, Siemens vice president of motion control for Digital Factory US. As several officials pointed out during the presentation, existing FDM technology is already used in Stratasys Fortus production machines for making end products, especially aerospace parts. Most notable, perhaps, is the serial production of thermoplastic parts made on a Fortus 900mc for the ducting system of United Launch Alliance's Atlas V rocket (see Slide 8). In that instance, redesigning the environmental control system duct for 3D printing cut the number of parts ...
