SuperStile invests in Stratasys 3D printer

SuperStile, an Italian company that works with automotive brands including Ferrari, Giugiaro, Stellantis and BMW, has expanded its 3D printing capacity with the installation of a Stratasys F770 to sit alongside its existing Stratasys Fortus 380 3D printer.

The Stratasys Fortus 380 and the recently installed F770 at SuperStile.

SuperStile, which is based in Moncalieri just south of Turin, was founded in 2015 and specialises in the design and development of exterior and interior bodywork for concept models, working prototypes and show cars. 

Franco Palmisano, co-founder and general manager of SuperStile, explained: “The purchase of our Stratasys Fortus 380 3D printer in 2021 led to a fundamental change in our mindset and overall approach to our design and development processes, which delivered results very quickly.” He added: “As well as affording us greater design freedom, we instantly reduced the lead times on prototype production from several weeks to just a few days, and also decreased overall costs thanks to a much more simplified and cost-effective process.”

The F770 is the most recent addition to Stratasys’s range of FDM printers. It has one of the longest fully heated build chamber on the market, measuring 1000 x 610 x 610 mm. It prints high-resistant and high-performance ABS-M30 and ASA thermoplastics and uses soluble support material to make it easier to print complex internal structures. Palmisano says that the large build capacity has enabled the company to take on an expanded range of projects and maintain its ability to meet development and delivery times.

The F770 is used within the company’s prototyping department, where it has already been deployed to 3D print various models, including rear-view mirrors, door handles and air vents.

Palmisano notes: “With its mega-build volume, it will ramp up the range of prototyping jobs that we’re able to take on for customers. It also gives us greater production bandwidth across our 3D printing requirements – but importantly via an industrial-grade additive manufacturing technology that has successfully proven itself to us via our Fortus 380.”
