Minneapolis & Rehovot, Israel - Nov. 2, 2015 - Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq:SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, recently integrated with SEMA Garage to enhance their service-based solutions.


The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) with more than 6,600 members, offers a variety of business tools and resources to help their companies prosper. This includes its own service bureau for manufacturing automobile prototype and production parts, and related accessories. SEMA recently acquired a Stratasys Fortus 450mc 3D Printer , giving its members the ability to build large prototype and production parts utilizing a wider range of thermoplastics, saving them time and reducing costs when bringing new products to market.

Covering 15,000 square feet and filled with state-of-the-art equipment, the SEMA Garage offers the specific tools and expertise their specialty product developer members require for new product development. The garage houses a temperature controlled emissions lab, a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) for 3D scanning, digital race car scales for precise vehicle weight measurements, a dynamometer for power output measurements and a Fortus 450mc 3D Printer for building prototype parts and more. "The Fortus 450mc provides SEMA members with the technology needed to create innovative products quickly and cost-effectively," said VP, OEM and Product Development, Mike Spagnola. "The ease, flexibility and capabilities of the machine will be instrumental in bringing new automotive products to market and helping manufacturers compete."

At this year's SEMA Show, which takes place Nov. 3 - 6 in Las Vegas, both the SEMA Garage (Grand Lobby in SEMA Central) and Stratasys (booth # 24323) will be featuring the Fortus 450mc 3D Printer, as well as a number of 3D printed parts from SEMA members Eldelbrock, K&N, Classic Auto Air and more.

"We are proud to not only be a longstanding member of SEMA but also a partner in bringing 3D services and technologies to their many members," said Ted Hebert, Director of Marketing for Stratasys North America. "With the advent of 3D printing services, the SEMA Garage continues to stand at the forefront of technology and advisory assistance for its many global members."
