Stratasys is integrating Siemens Digital Factory solutions to incorporate additive manufacturing into traditional operations.

Additive manufacturing has made great strides, but additional criteria are required for it to take its place in volume production. Robust, repeatable, and reliable performance is needed in a range of materials, certifiable for specific applications from design to production.

Siemens and Stratasys are collaborating on multiple projects including the direct link from Siemens NX software for CAD/CAM/CAE to Stratasys GrabCAD Print platform for design-to-3D print workflow. The Stratasys Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator will incorporate Siemens product lifecycle management (PLM) software, motion control, and CNC automation technologies to produce strong, lightweight performance parts.

Management, planning software

The ProLeiS manufacturing execution systems (MES) software offers comprehensive data management, manufacturing planning, and manufacturing control functions for control of individual parts for dies and injection molds – from quotation to the finished product.

Users can check during pre-planning to determine whether proposed projects can be processed and meet delivery dates. Overviews of milestones, degree of die completion, and resource assignments are provided.
