KITCHENER, Ont. (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
Hyphen™, the most comprehensive rapid prototyping and testing facility in North America, announced a significant upgrade to its capabilities with the purchase of the Stratasys Fortus 900mc 3D Production System from Cimetrix, one of Canada's leading additive manufacturing solution providers. Using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM ®), the system builds durable, accurate, repeatable parts as large as 36 x 24 x 36 inches, with a selection of ten material options, including FDM® Nylon 12, to create more finely detailed building fixture, factory tooling, and end-use parts that are closer to a finished product than ever before. The new developments are part of Hyphen's growth over the past year and a half, which has seen the lab broaden its services, establish new industry connections, and strengthen its leadership role in the additive manufacturing industry.
Cimetrix is uniquely positioned to assist clients like Hyphen in the acquisition and maximum use of 3D production systems, offering services that enhance their business processes and facilitate their effective use of technology through ongoing product and applications support. Cimetrix also brings access to an impressive array of additive manufacturing systems that use leading technologies such as FDM, further ensuring that Hyphen services and technology are at the forefront of innovation. Hyphen's addition of the Stratasys Fortus 900mc will enable their team to manufacture larger parts that are ideal for concept modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and even end-use parts, enabling faster speed to market.
"Hyphen has quickly established itself as a visionary in the additive manufacturing industry, championing new technologies and forging relationships with key players in all aspects of this growing field," said James Janeteas, President & CEO, Cimetrix Solutions Inc.
