BAE Systems has added a fourth Stratasys F900 3D printer to its manufacturing site in Salmesbury.
Alongside the existing three machines, the latest F900 will run around the clock as an integral part of BAE’s transformative ‘Factory of the Future’ initiative, a cutting-edge facility in Lancashire which brings together the latest advances in technology and manufacturing to work seamlessly with human operators in a first-of-its-kind, fully connected way.
Today, Stratasys industrial-grade FDM additive manufacturing is used across aircraft ground equipment operations for a wide range of applications spanning space models and design verification prototypes, manufacturing tools such as jigs and fixtures, and end-use parts. According to BAE Systems, the use of additive manufacturing across these applications is making production more flexible, faster and helping to reduce costs.
