Stratasys Ltd. has launched a new Industrial Customer Advisory Board (CAB). The 12-member Industrial Customer Advisory Board includes leaders from manufacturers across Aerospace, Automotive, and Industrial Manufacturing, as well as institutions of research and higher learning.

Some of the participants on the board include manufacturers such as Boeing, TE Connectivity and Toyota, along with schools that have known manufacturing programs such as Wichita State’s National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR), the University of Texas El Paso, and the Milwaukee School of Engineering.

Aligned with senior Stratasys leadership, the CAB provides input on requirements for scalable manufacturing applications and specific initiatives that focus on quality and reliability; characterization data; and alignment on an impactful sustainability strategy.

“Stratasys has and will continue to invest in capability development and to accelerate the realization of evolving addressable applications and associated customer value, we must work closely with market leaders to define and realize requirements,” says Jeff Hemenway, senior vice president, Global Industrial Sales.

“We realize significant value from AM technologies today, and to continuously open new scalable applications, we must evolve beyond purchasing products to working with collaborators like Stratasys to develop solutions. I am looking forward to working with Stratasys to advance capabilities and value for our industry,” says Dr. Melissa Orme, vice president of Boeing Additive Manufacturing.

“The Advisory Board assembled by Stratasys includes market leaders from several industries, and I believe that working with its members and Stratasys, we will further the value that AM delivers to our organization as we continue to advance into critical parts and applications. In creating this unique advisory board, Stratasys is showing its dedication to being a true partner and is willing to merge the expertise of many experts to create new standards in additive manufacturing,” says Jamie Janawitz, chief technology officer, Aerospace, Defense and Marine at TE Connectivity.

“This is very much a working advisory board that is excited to further the production-based value their companies and industries can realize with Additive Manufacturing,” says Rich Garrity, chief industrial business officer, Stratasys. “This is an important step for Stratasys and our customers as we advance into applications that are critical to their success.”

The Customer Advisory Board conducted its first workshop in December 2023 and is holding additional workshops throughout the remainder of 2024 and will continue into 2025 and beyond.
