Stratasys announced the launch of Stratasys F120™ 3D Printer on April 2, designed to power the next-generation of designers, engineers, and educators with easy-to-own, industrial-grade additive manufacturing technology. As the newest member of the F123™ Series of FDM® printers from Stratasys, the F120 brings industrial 3D printing to the masses – backed by simple controls, remote self-monitoring, exclusive 3D printing hardware, and extremely high levels of reliability and repeatability.
The F120 makes it simple even for the novice to get started with 3D printing in the design studio, office or education environments. While it’s noted that many desktop 3D printers struggle to produce reliable and accurate parts without technical know-how, the F120 printer is designed to create high-quality FDM models time-after-time. Streamlined plug-and-print functionality removes complexity from typical workflow processes with a user-friendly touchscreen interface and GrabCAD Print™ workflow.
Allowing for multiple uses in a single system, the F120 can support everything from rapid prototyping and tooling to full manufacturing. With an ability to print up to 3X faster than competitive solutions and up to 250 hours of uninterrupted printing. Virtually any customer can benefit immediately from the 3D printer’s ease-of-use, high-level accuracy, and hands-free soluble support.
The F120 is backed by 1200 hours of testing of the most important print performance attributes – including part robustness, accuracy, and how well the printed part matches the CAD file. Incorporating the benefits of larger systems, the F120 printer can 3D print complex, innovative designs with confidence.
The Stratasys F120 joins the full F123 Series of 3D printers, including the F170™, F270™ and F370™ - combining dependable FDM® technology with design-to-print GrabCAD Print software.
“For more than three decades, Stratasys has set the standard for performance, reliability and accuracy in industrial-level 3D printing technology. Some of the largest names in automotive, aerospace, and healthcare count on us to deliver repeatable and accurate 3D prints for both prototypes and end-use parts,” said Omer Krieger, EVP Products, Stratasys. “The F120 3D printer introduces this cutting-edge technology to even the most basic users, transcending many entry-level machines. Never before has it been this easy to put 3D printing to work for everyone – from students preparing for industry to the smallest design studio.”
Continued Krieger, “While many analysts report the entry-level 3D printing segment has grown significantly, we note organizations struggle with building production-level models on the first or second try – at the reliability and repeatability of high-end systems. This puts smaller designers and academic institutions at a significant disadvantage. The Stratasys F120 printer meets the needs of customers, providing engineering and design groups with highly productive part printing – whether they’re across the hall or around the globe.”
Stratasys is unveiling the F120 3D Printer at this week’s Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) Conference 2019 in Chicago, IL.
