Benefits of LS
Consistency and Repeatability
To ensure consistent build quality, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing has implemented stringent, proprietary process controls and procedures for executing builds, maintaining equipment, and handling materials. We maintain strict parameters for material traceability by monitoring the mixing and testing of powder before builds, tracking the thermal process during the build, and conducting post-process tensile bar testing.
Producing parts for production applications without tooling saves time and money. LS has proven to be an affordable means to build durable, stable production parts in low quantities. It is also effective for high volumes of components when the designs are too complex for traditional manufacturing to execute.
Using LS, engineers can incorporate multiple component designs into single structures. With the ability to produce complex features, undercuts, and internal features with ease, LS can consolidate what once was a multi-part assembly into one part. LS can eliminate the need for separate fasteners, mounting components, and adhesives, resulting in substantial weight reduction compared to conventional assemblies.
