California, US: While additive manufacturing (3D printing) is a disruptive technology, many large and small manufacturers need a way of identifying how and where to implement additive processes or quantify their impact. To maximise integration of 3D printing technologies and eliminate the unknowns, Stratasys and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, an indirect subsidiary, provide unified expertise and consulting through the Professional Services group. This is the first offering of its kind from a 3D printing technology manufacturer and additive manufacturing services provider.
Professional Services enables Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to take advantage of 3D printing technologies across their organisation’s lifecycle from prototyping to production parts. Services are available for engineers, designers and management teams to understand when and where to utilise 3D printing and how to integrate these advanced technologies into their production workflow. Manufacturers can shorten the adoption cycle internally, improve productivity and product quality, and reduce the costs and constraints associated with traditional manufacturing through these services. Ultimately, the knowledge helps manufacturers remain competitive and at the forefront of the industry.
