The new Stratasys F120 3D printer is made for designers, engineers and educators with its industrial-grade additive manufacturing technology, the company reports. As the newest member of the F123 Series of FDM printers from Stratasys, the F120 brings industrial 3D printing to the masses—backed by simple controls, remote self-monitoring, 3D printing hardware, and high levels of reliability and repeatability, the company adds.
The F120 makes it simple even for the novice to get started with 3D printing in the design studio, office or education environments. The F120 printer is designed to create high-quality FDM models consistently. Streamlined plug-and-print functionality removes complexity from typical workflow processes with a user-friendly touchscreen interface and GrabCAD Print workflow.
Allowing for multiple uses in a single system, the F120 can support rapid prototyping and tooling to full manufacturing. Large filament boxes allow for up to 250 hours of uninterrupted printing. Virtually any customer can benefit immediately from the 3D printer’s ease-of-use, high-level accuracy and hands-free soluble support.
“The F120 3D printer introduces this cutting-edge technology to even the most basic users, transcending many entry-level machines,” says Omer Krieger, EVP Products, Stratasys. “Never before has it been this easy to put 3D printing to work for everyone—from students preparing for industry to the smallest design studio, through full-scale prototyping departments putting tools at designers’ fingertips.”
The F120 is backed by 1,200 hours of independent testing of important print performance attributes—including part robustness, accuracy and how well the printed part matches the CAD file, the company reports.
The Stratasys F120 joins the full F123 Series of 3D printers, including the F170, F270 and F370, combining dependable FDM technology with design-to-print GrabCAD Print software. The solution is available to order as of today, with delivery starting in July. It is priced at $11,999 in the U.S.
Stratasys is unveiling the F120 3D Printer at this week’s Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) Conference 2019 in Chicago, IL. Visit Stratasys at Booth No. D17 in Salon D of the Hilton Chicago.
