Stratasys and Siemens have just announced that both will work together on a new project where they will seek to integrate the division Digital Factory from Siemens Stratasys additive manufacturing technology. This collaboration aims to lay the foundations for incorporating additive manufacturing technologies into the traditional production flow.
Undoubtedly a more than interesting project since it wants to show that additive manufacturing, today, is ready to reach any factory in the world, especially if it is related to different sectors such as automotive, aerospace, energy, transport or industrial machining. For Siemens, this project is closely related to the intention they have in the company of integrate digital design, simulation and data management to your manufacturing lines.
Stratasys will be in charge of bringing 3D printing to the Siemens production line.
As he commented Zvi Feuer, Senior Vice President of Manufacturing Engineering Software, Siemens:
Siemens is excited about this partnership with Stratasys and the opportunity to help our customers adopt a new manufacturing mindset that we believe will lead to better quality products, more cost-effectively produced and more efficiently supplied.
We are committed to the industrialization of additive manufacturing with all its advantages, such as complex part geometry, on-demand production, and mass customization. This relationship helps set a new course to ensure continued innovation and leadership through tight integration of product lines and collaboration on end-to-end additive manufacturing solutions.
Siemens' capability and commitment to the digital enterprise vision, coupled with close collaboration with Stratasys, can help many industries reduce time to market, streamline business operations, and improve workflow efficiencies. through horizontal and vertical integration.
For, Dan Yalon, Executive President of Products at Stratasys:
With our complete 3D printing system for customer software, hardware and application platforms, advanced materials offerings and consulting services, Stratasys is uniquely positioned to help manufacturers make use of 3D printing with the goal of transform your business models.
Stratasys is pleased to formalize its partnership with Siemens and sees it as an important catalyst for the industrialization of additive manufacturing. Together, our companies join forces to create a cohesive, class-leading technology foundation that enables large-scale manufacturers to enjoy the benefits of additive manufacturing in traditional production environments. We believe that the impact on manufacturing practices will begin soon and the aerospace, automotive and tooling sectors are expected to be first.
