As an experienced company in machine manufacturing and operations, Strangpresse offers specific insight into the additive manufacturing industry. The objective is to manufacture sound equipment that is able to build complex, detailed products that can’t be found anywhere else, and coming up with useful products to print that would take weeks upon weeks to manually manufacture.
Strangpresse was the first company to license Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) technologies, a partnership that is becoming a national force in the 3D printing world. StrangPresse and Oak Ridge wanted to be able to be able to produce 100 pounds an hour of output on a piece of equipment that weighed less than 35 pounds; with the technologically advanced equipment Strangpresse has to offer, they were able to do just that with polymers- but it does not stop there. As they continuously revolutionize their products, new products will be printed eventually right here in Youngstown, Ohio.
Some of the latest projects in the 3D printing world include prosthetic arms and legs, as well as various wheelchair parts to assist those participating in the Paralympics. With the help of 3D printing, these parts will make the chairs more reliable, and prosthetic body parts more stable.
Other interesting prints include a 3D printed kayak, utility vehicle, a Shelby Cobra racing vehicle, and a replica of the Orion Spacecraft. (http://www.e-ci.com/baam-3d-printed-projects)
