With 207 additive manufacturing machines and 80 conventional manufacturing platforms, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing is a key provider of additive manufacturing (AM) services. CEO Joe Allison explains that Stratasys Direct Manufacturing offers services that aid every stage of product development. In recent years, the company has experienced a dramatic increase in demand for AM end-use parts across the aerospace, medical, and automotive industries. Allison expects this trend to continue since AM can efficiently produce high-quality, lightweight parts.
In addition to AM services, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing uses traditional manufacturing techniques, such as CNC machining, urethane casting, and tooling.
“When you have all technologies and materials under one roof, customers can streamline production because they only need one partner throughout their product development process, potentially leading to greater efficiencies and cost savings,” Allison says.
In the Stratasys Direct Manufacturing joint effort, each company provides a crucial piece of the 3D technology puzzle to advance design development.
