Stratasys Ltd. (SSYS) will showcase its new F3300 Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printer at the Formnext conference, November 7-10, in Frankfurt, Germany. This innovative printer offers unparalleled value to manufacturing customers with reduced labor, maximized uptime and higher part quality and yield.
Built for manufacturing by the inventors of FDM, the F3300 is intended to be the most sophisticated industrial 3D printer on the market. Its design and advanced features will transform how additive manufacturing is used in the most demanding industries such as aerospace, automotive, government/military and service bureaus. The F3300 is expected to be available for shipment beginning 2024.
“This next-generation additive manufacturing system empowers customers to scale production and reduce the need to compromise between additive and traditional manufacturing solutions,” said Rich Garrity, Stratasys Chief Industrial Business Unit Officer. “Rising global supply chain challenges, conventional capacity limitations, and application complexity are placing incredible stress on manufacturing. The F3300 will empower customers to accelerate product development, allowing them to innovate faster, overcome production challenges, be quicker to market, and maximize their return on investment.”
The latest advancements in 3D printing technology have brought about significant improvements in various aspects of the printing process. One of the key enhancements is the faster print speeds achieved through increased gantry speeds, quicker extrusion rates, and automated calibration. This not only saves time but also enhances overall efficiency.
These innovations have led to higher part quality and yields, with a 25% increase in accuracy and repeatability. The printer’s autocalibration feature ensures consistent and precise printing results, further enhancing the output quality.
Furthermore, the F3300 FDM 3D printer offers maximized uptime, thanks to features like machine monitoring and extruder redundancy. The interface design has been carefully crafted to prioritize user-friendliness, making it easier for operators to navigate and control the printing process efficiently.
In terms of cost-effectiveness, the F3300 FDM 3D printer provides substantial savings, ranging from 25% to 45% when compared to other Stratasys Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) solutions. These cost savings make the technology more accessible and financially viable for a wider range of applications and industries. Overall, these developments represent a significant leap forward in the field of 3D printing, promising faster, more reliable, and more economical solutions for manufacturers and creators alike
The F3300 is the latest addition to the Stratasys FDM family which includes the F900, F770, F450mc, and the F123 series. F3300 complements Stratasys’ F900, which is known for its dependability, large capacity, and use of high-performance materials.
Stratasys is hosting a special live event on November 7 at 5:30 p.m., CET to unveil the F3300.
