Built for the production floor, Stratasys FDM technology and FDM services from TriMech help designers and engineers to quickly develop tooling, end-use parts and prototypes for demanding fields such as medical, aerospace, automotive, government and military, consumer products and more.
And using materials you’re familiar with as well as other standard and engineering grade thermoplastics, we can tackle applications that require tight tolerances, toughness and environmental stability as well as specialized properties like electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility and more.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
For manufacturers new to 3D printing and established factory floors alike, Stratasys FDM® 3D printers and related services are a game changing choice — giving you the option to have strong, durable and dimensionally stable prototypes, tools and production parts 3D printed on-demand. Additionally, TriMech experts are well versed in the multitude of global manufacturing methods and ready to help you find ways to shave days off production cycles, meet industry demands and maximize throughput.
Start manufacturing efficiencies
Using production-grade thermoplastics Stratasys FDM technology allows us to create your high-strength tooling, end-use parts and functional prototypes of various complexities faster, with precise accuracy, helping decrease material waste, reduce production costs and increase productivity.
- FDM offers a broad range of polymer materials
- FDM delivers more high-performance solutions
- FDM results are repeatable, reliable and accurate
Test and refine parts before moving into full production. Using production-grade FDM thermoplastics, we can quickly make your functional prototypes to validate the design of end-use parts. In certain applications, carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic parts can replace metal for lighter parts and tools without sacrificing strength and durability. Plus, multi-component assemblies can be built in one print, which helps reduce part count as well as labor time and assembly costs.
Decrease lead times and cut production costs by up to 90% with a digital inventory of on-demand tools. Unlike traditional manufacturing methods, 3D printing services gives you the flexibility to obtain custom tooling that meets your unique production needs. We can build strong, lightweight jigs and fixtures that improve ergonomics and operator safety; produce surrogate parts that optimize your assembly line; or design complex tools as one contiguous component — cutting down assembly times and post-build labor.
Functional end-use parts
Get the parts you need 3D printed, when you need them. With FDM 3D printing, you can get initial production parts into market faster while full-scale mass production capabilities are being established. TriMech can also help you to meet small-order and highly customized end-use part demands quickly without the tool up costs and long lead times. Plus, 3D printing provides cost-effective, on-demand production that eliminates physical inventory — reducing supply chain costs associated with products at the end of their life cycle.
TriMech can help
If you need backup or support for overflow part requests, tooling or end-use parts, TriMech FDM services using Stratasys FDM 3D printers can help you get the job done to your specifications.
