Additive manufacturing continues to blaze new trails – validating its use beyond rapid prototyping and into bridge-to-production and production parts. As AM continues to penetrate high-performance industries, such as aerospace, medical, and transportation, 3D printing companies are facing greater demands on material availability, performance, aesthetics, price, and traceability. To continue to push AM adoption into end-use applications, scalable production methods that ensure quality and traceability are needed.

Join Global Transportation Director Fadi Abro and Manufacturing Engineer Kevin Sheehy to learn how Stratasys harnessed the power of its SAF™ technology, to fabricate automotive production parts for Roush’s version of the F150. Hear how Stratasys validated the production method through a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), which provides confidence for automotive OEMs that their parts will be manufactured to meet all their requirements from the first to the final manufacturing run. See how AM can be qualified for rigorous real-world production applications that provide a scalable and flexible supply chain while reducing risk and maintaining the highest level of quality necessary for Tier 1 automotive companies.

Learning Objectives:

  • See how additive manufacturing has moved beyond rapid prototyping into full production, validating its use in real world production applications.
  • Understand the manufacturing challenges solved by Selective Absorption Fusion (SAF); the advantages of the technology, and the applications best suited for SAF.
  • See how Stratasys validated production using Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), giving automotive OEMs confidence that their parts would be manufactured to their requirements from first to final run.
