Stratasys has unveiled its new Layered Powder Metallurgy (LPM) platform for cost-effective, short-run, industrial-grade 3D printed metal parts.

“Current approaches to 3D printing metal parts leave a lot to be desired – including slow post-processing, painstakingly intricate support removal, and hours of matching and grinding. Combined with the high cost of AM powders, this means each part is expensive, with a total cost of ownership that is too hard to justify,” said Rafie Grinvald, Director of Product Marketing and Management, Stratasys.

OUR - NEW - PLATFORM - IS - BEING

“OUR NEW PLATFORM IS BEING DESIGNED TO TRANSFORM THE CURRENT METALS ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING LANDSCAPE – PRESENTING A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO TYPICAL PRODUCTION METHODS – AND HELPING CUSTOMERS DRAMATICALLY REDUCE THE COSTS OF CREATING RELIABLE, CONSISTENT PRODUCTION-GRADE, METAL PARTS FOR SHORT-RUN APPLICATIONS.”

Following a $25 million investment in metal powder producer, LPW Technology, earlier this year, Stratasys announced a forthcoming metal additive manufacturing platform intended “to displace conventional methods for short-run manufacturing,” across the aerospace, automotive, healthcare and consumer sectors.
