We’ve just taken delivery of a brand new Stratasys Fortus 380mc 3D printer and installed it in one of our labs. Our main objective with the purchase of this machine is to enable our customers to speed up time to market for their new products by providing fast prototyping and customization services for enclosures and other complex system components.
Although product development and roll-out cycles are traditionally much longer in the embedded market than in its PC and smart phone counterparts, we are beginning to see them accelerate as new trends such as the IoT change the dynamics of the market. With the installation of the printer, we hope to be able to help our customers respond effectively to the new challenges that this shift poses.
Here’s a link to a presentation I gave in 2013 on the threats and opportunities of 3D printing for SMEs. Even though it’s over two years old, the key points I made in it are just as relevant today as I when I gave it.
If you want to learn more about our new 3D printing services, please feel free to contact me by email or social media.
