Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS) announced its new SAF HighDef Printing capabilities and the launch of the H350 printer, Version 1.5 (V1.5) to expand SAF adoption with additional applications and use cases for a growing set of manufacturing end markets. The Stratasys SAF H350 V1.5 will bring finer detail and even greater precision to Stratasys’s SAF technology.

The strategy is likely aimed at competing with EOS Fine detail resolution (FDR) technology which used a special CO laser with an ultra-fine beam half the size of standard selective laser sintering (SLS) systems. Combined with PA 11, a remarkably flexible and lightweight polymer material, it produces rigid parts with a high detail resolution and smooth surface finish. Stratasys’ SAF platforms use PA 11 as their primary material and promises greater productivity via SAF, a planar, thermal PBF process, then laser PBF (SLS).

Stratasys’ new HighDef Printing capabilities are designed to allow for more exact, high-definition printing with detailed resolution. This gives manufacturers the ability to rapidly scale their additive manufacturing through reliable repeatability, while creating more intricate parts and expanding their design capabilities. Customers from industries such as aerospace, automotive, and healthcare can take advantage of SAF thermal control to create applications that require smooth, precise features like gears and mechanisms.

“High-definition printing enables tighter tolerances, moving assemblies and a new range of applications for SAF customers,” said Adam Ellis, Corporate Applications Manager, Stratasys. “Bringing HighDef to our customers will help us expand and improve their capabilities and increase their adoption of 3D printing in manufacturing roles.”

Delivered as part of a firmware update, Stratasys’ HighDef Printing on the H350 V1.5 system will be backwards compatible with previous H350 models and made available to customers at no additional cost.

The new H350 V1.5

Stratasys is introducing the new H350 V1.5 printer. This new printer has improved sensors and remote service capabilities, making the printer easier to operate and service. The H350 V1.5 will also come with the new Stratasys HighDef Printing firmware update.

“The new capabilities and the upgraded H350 align with the performance needs that our customers indicated to us, that will allow them to further benefit from additive manufacturing and SAF technology in particular,” said Torben Lange, Vice President, SAF Research & Development, Stratasys. “New applications and use cases will allow manufacturers to scale their production, with more intricate parts, without compromising speed or quality.”
