TROY — Fisher-Unitech, a product life cycle management company, Wednesday announced its partnership with Stratasys will continue under the new Stratasys Ltd.
As a direct result of the Objet-Stratasys merger, Fisher-Unitech has been authorized to expand their product line of three-dimensional printers and production systems to include all of the Objet products.
Fisher-Unitech has been selected to participate in a pilot of the new combined product line commencing in January. The company has been a Stratasys partner for 16 years and for the past several years has been the top reseller for Stratasys Corporation in the Americas.
“The merger of Stratasys and Objet brings together two very complimentary technologies to address the fast growing 3D printing market,” said Charlie Hess, president and CEO of Fisher-Unitech. “We are anxious to bring Objet’s polyjet technology and its advantages to customers and prospects in our markets. We believe the new Stratasys Ltd. will continue to provide great technical leadership and innovative products within the additive manufacturing industry.”
Fisher-Unitech has established two Rapid Technology Centers to support benchmarks, part building services and advanced training. Each center is equipped with systems for both 3D printing and 3D production manufacturing applications with the ability to print parts using both technologies. Fisher-Unitech has increased its commitment to rapid technology in 2012 with an expanded sales, service and support team to support the entire array of solutions from the new company.
Each of the company’s 14 offices house equipment for localized printing, demonstrations and training.
3D printing has become a necessary component of the overall product development process, helping design teams test form, fit and function while accelerating time to market and enhancing collaboration and communication. Most recently, 3D Production has become a disruptive technology and is quickly displacing many traditional manufacturing processes through additive manufacturing vs. subtractive manufacturing.
Fisher-Unitech, established in 1993, provides advanced technology to discrete manufacturing companies. The company’s focus is on process improvement for product development. The technology applications offered focus on design, engineering, 3D printing and additive manufacturing. Professional services are offered for design automation and data management which provides customers with a full service, one-stop source for complex PLM systems. The company offers advanced web-based delivery of education programs with its interactive, instructor-led 3DU.
