22 May 2017
Stratasys Ltd., incorporated on March 3, 1998, is a provider of three dimensional (3D) printing and additive manufacturing (AM) solutions for the creation of parts used in the processes of designing and manufacturing products and for the direct manufacture of end parts. The Company's solutions include products ranging from entry-level desktop 3D printers to systems for rapid prototyping (RP) and production systems for direct digital manufacturing (DDM). The Company also develops, manufactures and sells materials for use with its systems and provides related services offerings. As of December 31, 2016, the Company offered 3D printing consumable materials, consisting of 15 fused deposition modeling (FDM), cartridge-based materials, 26 PolyJet cartridge-based materials, five smooth curvature printing (SCP) inkjet-based materials, 158 non-color digital materials, and over 1,500 color variations, as well as its four SolidScape non-toxic thermoplastic modeling materials. Its services offerings include Stratasys Direct Manufacturing printed parts service, as well as its professional services.
The Company's products and services are used in different applications by customers in a range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, consumer goods, medical processes and medical devices, education, dental, jewelry and others. The Company offers a range of systems, consumables and services for 3D printing and additive manufacturing. Its portfolio offers a range of performance options for its customers, depending on their desired application, as well as on the nature and size of the designs, prototypes or end-products they seek to produce. Its 3D printing systems are based on its FDM and PolyJet technologies.
The Company offers a series of printing systems suitable for RP, from design validation, visualization and communication to form, fit and functional performance testing. It also offers printing systems used for additive manufacturing, production tooling and end parts applications, and prototyping applications. Its FDM technology based systems produce thermoplastic heated parts suitable for RP manufacturing, tooling and end-used parts use cases. Its PolyJet technology based high-end printing systems offer the ability to print multiple materials, including color printing in a single part build. It also offers its Solidscape line of 3D printers, materials and software for Additive Manufacturing applications. MakerBot Replicator series represents its desktop 3D printers, compact and professional-grade 3D printers. The modeling and support filament used in the FDM-based 3D printers and production systems features a range of production grade thermoplastic materials.
The Company's resin consumables, which consist of its PolyJet family of acrylic-based photopolymer materials, are designed for use with its PolyJet printing systems and enable users of those products to create 3D models and parts for a range of prototype development and customized manufacturing applications. Its PolyJet materials are produced in-house and are specially designed for its printing systems. Its Solidscape inkjet-based materials feature lost wax casting qualities, including fast melt out, no ash or residue, and no thermal expansion. As of December 31, 2016, it had four modeling materials commercially available for use with its Solidscape technology. Thingiverse is its online community for sharing downloadable, digital 3D designs. It operates the GrabCAD Inc. Community for mechanical engineers and designers, where members can upload and download free computer aided-design (CAD) models, download its GrabCAD Print software, post and answer mechanical engineering questions, and participate in design challenges.
The Company competes with 3D Systems Corporation, EOS GmbH, XYZ Printing, Ultimaker, Formlabs, Materialise and EnvisionTEC GmbH.
