German service bureau Götz Maschinenbau has invested in four additional production-scale Stratasys H350 3D printers to meet growing customer demand for high-quality end-use parts. The investment will ramp up Götz’s total fleet size to six systems. The new units, to be installed over the next 18 months, position the company as the leading service bureau for SAF technology in EMEA.

Götz, which also deploys Stratasys 3D printers based on PolyJet and FDM technologies, is a specialist in the turning, milling, welding, and assembly of parts, and serves customers across a range of industry sectors, including automotive, mobility, and mechanical engineering. Adding the ability to additively manufacture thousands of polymer parts has reportedly presented a significant growth opportunity for the company.

Götz Maschinenbau purchases four additional Stratasys H350 printers - positioning it as the leading service bureau for SAF technology in EMEA Philipp Götz, Owner, Götz Maschinenbau, said the SAF technology used by the H350 systems is ideal for maintaining the high quality yet cost-effective standards expected by its customers.

“Since the installation of our initial H350 printers, we’ve actually won significant new business because of the quality and cost-effectiveness of parts printed on SAF technology,” said Philipp Götz, Owner of Götz Maschinenbau. “Our existing Stratasys 3D printers are operating at full capacity 24/7 and provide us with an extremely reliable manufacturing solution for high volume, as well as small to medium series production, at a lower price and with shorter lead times than injection molding or CNC.”

The Stratasys H350 3D printer is designed to deliver production-level throughput for end-use parts while providing production consistency, competitive cost per part, and complete control over the production of thousands of parts. The printer itself is equipped with around a dozen parts that have been 3D printed with SAF technology.

“Whether we 3D print five parts or tens of thousands, the consistency of each part is the same across the entire order, ensuring that they can be built directly into machinery and address a wider range of volume production applications,” continued Philipp Götz.

Essential to Götz’s ability to deliver production-grade plastic parts at high volume is the Stratasys High-Yield PA11 material for the H350 printer. The bio-based plastic is made of renewable raw materials derived from sustainable castor oil, and enables a high nesting density while maintaining part consistency. Götz has also been an early user of PA12 material, which produces stiffer parts. At volume, SAF PA12 allows for fine feature resolution, strength, and accuracy build after build, and is most suitable for higher tolerance requirements such as for assemblies and connector applications.
