3D printing lets you customize when timing is critical
3D printing gives military, defense manufacturers and government the flexibility to design a single end-use part, generate low-volume tooling faster or build models that are complicated and precise. This is especially advantageous when customizing equipment is needed as well as meeting tight schedules.
Stratasys PolyJet digital materials give defense engineers and designers the choice to select the precise properties they need for each part. For requirements of 3D printed multi-material parts on a single build tray, Stratasys offers PolyJet Matrix Technology. Models that need to withstand harsh functional testing, chemical exposure resistance and extreme temperatures, Stratasys offers Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology using production-grade materials, such as high-performance thermoplastics like PC and ULTEM 9085.
