Stratasys and Survey Copter to exhibit at forthcoming Paris Air Show (17 th - 23 rd June, Paris, France)
Stratasys Ltd . (NASDAQ:SSYS), a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, has announced that remote control systems manufacturer, Survey Copter, is successfully using its 3D printing technology to produce prototype and short-run component parts for mini-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems, also known as drones.(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130523/614242-a ) (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130523/614242-b ) (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130523/614242-c ) France-based Survey Copter, a subsidiary of the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company N.V. (EADS), specializes in the design, production and integration of complete remote systems for surveillance photography and video service applications for UAVs and other airborne craft, as well as for sea and overland vehicles. Having previously outsourced its prototyping requirements, Survey Copter turned to Stratasys for an in-house solution that could reduce costs and ensure greater efficiency and autonomy, granting the company the means to rapidly produce very small quantities within 24 hours. Via Stratasys' French distributor, CADvision, Survey Copter subsequently installed two 3D printing solutions - a Stratasys Dimension Elite 3D Printer and Stratasys Fortus 400mc 3D Production System, which offers nine production-grade engineering thermoplastics using Stratasys' patented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology. "Effectively meeting our 3D printing needs can only be achieved via machines that are capable of producing quality parts with high reliability," explains Jean Marc Masenelli, managing director, Survey Copter. "Stratasys' reputation for delivering 3D printers that meet these criteria head-on made them the logical company to partner with."
