STRATASYS EXPANDS FDM AND POLYJET 3D PRINTING MATERIAL OPTIONS

FDM’s ASA is available in eight new colors PolyJet adds20 new Digital Materials

Minneapolis & Rehovot, Israel – Jan. 29, 2015 -  Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq:SSYS), a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, introduced new colors for its ASA thermoplastic and expanded its Digital Materials. 

Launched in September,  ASA is an all-purpose  FDM material used for the production of prototypes, manufacturing tools and finished goods. Adding to the previously launched ivory and black, the eight new color options for ASA include: red, orange, dark gray, yellow, green, dark blue, white and light gray. ASA now offers the most color options of any FDM material, allowing users the flexibility to create colorful parts that are UV resistant, strong and durable. 

ASA offers an exceptional surface finish and has the best aesthetics of any FDM material available. Compared to ABS, details such as printed text and other features are greatly improved by ASA’s matte finish. 

Compatible with the Fortus 360mc, 380mc, 400mc, 450mc and 900mc 3D Production Systems, ASA thermoplastic can be used by manufacturers in a variety of industries including sporting goods, outdoor tools, electrical, toys and automotive. 

In addition to ASA’s new color options, Stratasys is expanding its  PolyJet technology (which offers more than 1,000 material options) by adding 20 two-component  Digital Materials that combine  Endur with other base materials. Endur Digital Materials allow users to create parts using a range of gray-scale colors with rigid material options, as well as the ability to select a variety of Shore A values with flexible material options. 

 

Eight new rigid Digital Materials offer a range of six gray shades and two white shades. Twelve new flexible Digital Materials offer a range of Shore A values. Six of these combine Endur with TangoBlackPlus and six combine Endur with TangoPlus. 

Launched in 2014, Endur is an advanced simulated polypropylene material for use with the  Objet EdenVObjet EdenVSObjet Connex systems,  Objet30 Prime and  Objet30 Pro 3D Printers. Endur offers prototyping benefits to a wide range of manufacturers in the consumer goods, household appliances, automotive parts, consumer electronics and lab equipment industries. Endur Digital Materials, available for Objet Connex 3D Printers, can produce thin walls, living hinges, snap-fits and moving or assembled parts. Examples include containers, CD cases, gaskets, shoe soles or handles. 

“By introducing Endur Digital Materials, we are giving customers more flexibility and versatility to 3D print durable prototypes,” said Boaz Jacobi, director of product management for PolyJet consumables. “It’s a superior PolyJet solution for living-hinge and snap-fit applications.”
