The company, a product lifecycle management solutions provider and Stratasys partner for nearly 17 years, supplies an array of 3D Printers and 3D Production equipment including Fortus, Dimension, Mojo, uPrint and Objet to discrete manufacturing companies in the Midwest United States. Fisher-Unitech has established ‘Rapid Technology Centers’ to support proof-of-concept parts, disaster-recovery services, and advanced training. Each center is equipped with systems for both 3D printing and 3D production manufacturing applications with the ability to print complex parts.
