Stratasys executive wins major award

A senior executive at 3D printer maker Stratasys Ltd has won a major award at the recent SME’s RAPID 2013 annual industry conference in the US.

Stratasys Chairman and Chief Innovation Officer, Scott Crump, was awarded the Rapid Technologies and Additive Manufacturing (RTAM) Industry Achievement Award by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).

Francisco Medina, manager of the University of Texas at El Paso's W.M. Keck Centre for 3D Innovation, presented the award to Mr Crump.

Established in 2008, the Industry Achievement Award annually recognizes one individual, team or company for outstanding accomplishments that have had significant impact within the additive manufacturing industry or in any industry through the application of additive manufacturing technologies.

A panel of judges composed of manufacturing engineers, CEOs, industry consultants, original equipment manufacturers and other rapid manufacturing professionals evaluate nominees from the RTAM industry, including rapid manufacturing, tooling, medical, 3D imaging and materials.

The award winner is selected based on the scope and scale of their work benefitting the industry today as well as its promise to positively and significantly impact the future.

Mr Crump has served as the Chairman of the Board since Stratasys Inc's inception in 1988. Since the company's merger with Objet and formation of the new entity – Stratasys Ltd – Crump continues as full-time Chairman as well as Chief Innovation Officer.

Crump along with his wife Lisa H. Crump, invented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology.
