Days after the first reveal of its F3300 industrial 3D printer, Stratasys has signed an agreement with Toyota through which the automotive giant will become the first to purchase the F3300 system. The new 3D printer, which offers a 25% increase in accuracy and repeatability over previous industrial FDM systems, will be put to work at Toyota in the production of fixtures, production parts and prototypes to accelerate product development.

“Having the opportunity to incorporate the F3300 3D printer into our additive operations represents a great leap forward towards achieving our corporate goals,” commented Eduardo Guzman, Advanced Technologies Manager at Toyota. “The new printer capabilities will help us accelerate the introduction of new additive manufacturing opportunities across our manufacturing operations”

The F3300, which is expected to start shipping in early 2024, integrates a range of upgrades, including increased gantry speeds, faster extrusion rates and automated calibration. These all contribute to overall faster printing speeds and enhanced process efficiency compared to previous Stratasys systems. Other features include machine monitoring and extruder redundancy. Stratasys has also stated its new industrial 3D printing platform is more cost efficient than its other FDM systems, offering between 25-45% savings. Overall, with faster print speeds, lower cost-per-part, and improved accuracy, the 3D printer will undoubtedly benefit Toyota, as it leverages the technology to create complex, high-precision parts in its vehicle design and production workflows.

“We have a combined interest in delivering innovation and superior quality for our customers, and this partnership with Toyota demonstrates our mutual commitments to better, smarter, and more sustainable production,” added Rich Garrity, Chief Industrial Business Unit Officer, Stratasys. “Built with manufacturing in mind, the F3300 will redefine additive manufacturing on the factory floor, with its speed, lowers costs and ease of service.”
