Professional Services Group to help manufacturers understand where to implement 3D printing.
Additive manufacturing leader Stratasys and AM service provider, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing have combined resources to create a Professional Services Group which will amplify integration of 3D printing technologies for large and small manufacturers looking to adopt additive technologies.
Professional Services enables original equipment manufacturers 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 implement 3D printing into their production workflow to improve productivity, product quality, and reduce the costs and constraints.
“There’s a knowledge gap on how to advance manufacturing. We have the capabilities and expertise to close this gap because we understand traditional manufacturing and the 3D printing industry,” Bob Wolter, Professional Services manager at Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, commented. “While some manufacturers are unsure when or where to start incorporating 3D printing, others need additional expertise to maximize integration. We can help no matter where your organization is in the process. We take a technology-agnostic approach to consulting by providing you with all of the options, including those not offered by a Stratasys entity. You decide the best path for your organization.”
The joint expertise from Stratasys and its indirect subsidiary provides Stratasys Direct Manufacturing means customers benefit from 30 years of knowledge in additive and conventional manufacturing, which will help eliminate the unknowns associated with implementing a new manufacturing technology or workflow. This includes access to expertise for parts manufacturing across a wide array of additive manufacturing technologies, from people who make prototype and production parts every day.
Direct Manufacturing’s Professional Services group is designed to support OEMs at every step in the process, from tool identification to original design and optimization on the shop floor through production, packaging and logistics.
