Stratasys will present its vision of an additive manufacturing ‘Factory of the Future’ at the Oracle OpenWorld Conference on Oct. 25 – 29, where VP and GM of Vertical Solutions Rich Garrity will talk about smart workflows.
Garrity will discuss how smart, agile manufacturing workflows can be enabled by using 3F printers on the factory flood. Additive manufacturing can be integrated into adjacent manufacturing software systems, he said, as well as bringing new elements and new possibilities. Garrity will come prepared with anecdotes from the aerospace and automotive sectors, as well as other industries, regarding the use of 3D printing in conjunction with other manufacturing systems.
“The inclusion of Industry 4.0 applications at Oracle OpenWorld, this year, make it a natural fit for Stratasys additive manufacturing,” said Danny Weber, VP of strategy and strategic alliances. “We invite attendees to come discuss how they can begin integrating additive manufacturing into their supply chain to improve production economics and explore new business models.”
The Fortus 450mc and uPrint SE Plus 3D printers will be available for viewing at the event. Stratasys will also demonstrate its Direct Manufacturing parts-on-demand service.
The annual Oracle OpenWorld Conference, organized by hardware and software company Oracle, will be held in San Francisco.
Stratasys has been working in 3D printing and additive manufacturing for 25 years. They recently welcomed Adobe Photoshop CC into the ecosystem for their Direct Express self-service printing site. Meanwhile, MakerBot, purchased by Stratasys last year, continues to undergo a major restructuring that recently lead to a 20 percent reduction in staff.
