Scott Crump, Founder of Stratasys invented Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) in year 1980 and has been leading the revolution ever since in developing a range of 3D Printing systems that appeal to large manufacturers, designers academicians, architects and other professionals
FDM is the industry’s leading 3D Printing technology and is the only technology that uses production-grade thermoplastics. with a wide range of advanced materials and mechanical properties, FDM parts endure high heat, caustic chemicals, sterilization and intense mechanical stresses.
Being clean, office-friendly and simple-to-use, a FDM system can be deployed anywhere, right from your R & D lab to a full scale Production facility. Soluble Support materials will enable users to produce complex geometries and cavities that are difficult build with traditional manufacturing methods.
FDM technology based Stratasys 3D Printers have the versatility to produce not only thermoplastic parts with the strength, durability, accuracy and functionality of traditionally manufactured parts without machining or tooling but also Nylon which is toughest in the industry, exhibiting 100-300 percent better elongation at break and superior fatigue resistance over any other additive manufacturing technology.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Systems transform 3D CAD files into functional prototypes, manufacturing tools, and end-use parts. Parts built with production-grade thermoplastics last for years, performing like traditional machined parts under real-world conditions.
