Antemo buys Stratasys F900 3D printer

Antemo, an Austrian engineering and manufacturing service bureau, has installed a Stratasys F900 3D printer to help reduce per part production costs and accelerate overall throughput and expand further into the aerospace industry.

Antemo is planning to use Stratasys’ flight-rated advanced thermoplastics to 3D print in materials that enable easier part certification so that it can challenge for work in the aerospace industry. Martin Brunner, CEO, Antemo, explains the company has been using CNC milling and turning for part production, adding: “However, the Stratasys F900 3D Printer offers another dimension to our production insofar as both time and cost-savings; it allows us to by-pass lengthy and complicated programming, as well as expensive production costs associated with CNC milling. We will now be able to produce customized solutions at a lower cost per part and make production more repeatable and reliable.”

It helps also that the F900 has a reasonably large build area, allowing the production of parts up to 914.4 x 609.6 x 914.4 mm to be printed, which helps in the production of larger interior aircraft cabin parts. 

Brunner continued: “When creating interior aircraft cabin parts, the Stratasys Ultem 9085 resin available on the F900 3D printer is a particular asset, as it is FST compliant and offers high chemical and thermal resistance. This is ideal for producing lightweight parts on-demand for our customers that can be certified for the aerospace industry.”
