This year’s TCT Show + Personalize will see Stratasys highlight its latest additive manufacturing solutions to optimise product development. On display will be a host of real life examples from a broad spectrum of industries, demonstrating how Stratasys’ proven FDM and PolyJet technologies are significantly reducing time and costs for leading manufacturers worldwide.
Visitors will be able to hear how Stratasys customers such as Airbus, BMW, Unilever, Trek, Opel and more are disrupting traditional design and manufacturing processes – from prototyping to tooling, through injection moulding and final part production – enabling them to become more productive, efficient and profitable.
Making its debut at TCT will be Stratasys’ recently-launched J750 3D Printer, the world’s only full colour, multi-material 3D printer. The J750 3D Printer delivers supreme versatility with the ability to produce prototypes, as well as tooling, moulds, jigs and fixtures and more – all from one system. Its unique 3D printing capabilities enable users for the first time to combine full colour gradients with an unprecedented range of materials to achieve the most realistic parts in the industry – easily and without post-processing. Eliminating several design processes in one simultaneous print, product designers, manufacturers and service bureaus can make near instantaneous decision-making to accelerate product development.

Showcasing the power of FDM within production, Stratasys’ Fortus 3D Printer will be running live on the stand. With a wide selection of real-engineering thermoplastics, the Fortus-line of 3D printers has become a key part of the manufacturing process for many of the world’s leading manufacturers, reducing production costs, slashing lead times and streamlining supply chain workflows. Visitors will be able to see The University of Warwick’s 3D printed submarine on the stand, which features significant FDM production parts. The university saved almost £3000 during its development and reduced the production schedule by 90% using Stratasys FDM technology.
Concluding the line-up, Stratasys will premiere the world’s largest, fastest, and most complex 3D printed UAV. Consisting of 80% 3D printed parts, Aurora Flight Sciences was able to produce a lightweight structure without the common restrictions of traditional manufacturing methods, while cost-effectively developing a customised vehicle to overcome the financial implications typical with low-volume production.
