3D printer manufacturer Stratasys expands its production capabilities Sep 30, 2011 14:51 by Roy Hamilton
Stratasys, the 3D printer manufacturer, has announced that it has expanded its production capability by opening a new building.
According to the firm, this move indicates a vote of confidence in an uncertain economy to improve its printer ink operations.
The company noted that the new 90,000 square-foot office will provide it with the extra space required to develop over 10,000 units of the 3D printer ink products.
Chief executive of Stratasys, Scott Crump, said: “By opening this building, we’re putting our money where our mouth is. It’s evidence of our product’s market acceptance.”
He added: “We’ve said we’re optimistic about the economy and our prospects.”
Objet recently announced that a variety of materials will be made available for its 3D printer ink machines.
Zehavit Reisin, head of consumables line of business at the firm, added that widening the availability of ink solutions onto various platforms, including its Eden and Connex range, will enhance its prototyping capabilities for all customers.
