SCHIVO, based in the United Kingdom and Ireland, is proud to partner with Stratasys, the worldwide leader in 3D Printing Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) technology.

3D printing, also known as Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM), is a process which complements traditional subtractive manufacturing processes. By enabling you to produce prototypes, tools and final parts directly from CAD data, digital manufacturing fosters dramatic reductions in delivery times and production costs while improving overall product quality.

In FDM 3D printing, layers of different thermoplastic polymer are extruded and built up into highly accurate complex structures. A secondary material may also be used to support overhang and voids during the manufacturing process. This support material is removed after the final product is finished.

SCHIVO brings to your production facility a wealth of manufacturing expertise. Working with top tier global companies gives us a unique insight into a wide variety of specialised manufacturing solutions for key industries. Committed to your success, we are ready to help you add value to your existing manufacturing operations and discover exciting new business opportunities.

SCHIVO uses Stratasys Production Series Fortus 900 and Fortus 400 FDM printers

The Fortus 900mc 3D Production System builds durable, accurate, repeatable parts as large as 914 x 610 x 914 mm (36 x 24 x 36 inches) with two material bays for maximum unattended build time.

Three layer thickness options let you strike the right balance between fine feature detail and FDM’s fastest build. For demanding functional prototypes, production parts, jigs, fixtures and factory tooling, the 900mc works with 11 different thermoplastics with a range of characteristics that meet a range of material performance requirements.

The Fortus 400mc 3D standard size Production System lets you build parts as large as 355 x 254 x 254 mm (14 x 10 x 10 in). Eleven different types of materials can be used in the Fortus Production Systems, including Stratasys’ next generation ULTEM polymers.
