Why Energy Companies Use Additive Manufacturing
The energy sector has seen increasing advancements from additive manufacturing in both high resolution prototypes and complex, production parts.
Through more efficient, on-demand, lightweight components and environmentally-friendly materials, energy companies have used 3D printing to answer to diverse requirements and field functions.
Success in the energy sector hinges on the ability to quickly develop project-critical components that can withstand extreme conditions.
Stratasys Direct has a history of meeting high quality standards and acutely understands the need for tailored products and solutions.
Competitive energy companies are taking advantage of our technical expertise to develop new and improved solutions for their complex part geometries.
Discover what’s possible in energy, oil and gas with our wide variety of technologies and specially formulated materials.
Injection Molding Benefits
Produce high volumes of consistent production parts with near-limitless plastic material options.
Our proprietary tooling methods allow us to deliver low-volumes of parts within one to two weeks.
QUALITY PRODUCTION PARTS
Get precise, repeatable parts throughout large production at the quality you expect.
Technologies & Materials
At Stratasys Direct we offer the largest fleet of 3D printing technologies to serve a variety of application needs.
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
DMLS creates complex geometries and fine features not possible with any other metal manufacturing process.
With alloys like Nickel Alloy 625 and Nickel Alloy 718, DMLS is ideal for complex energy components as well as tough functional prototypes.
Stratasys Direct has big milling platforms for large accurate parts that require critical dimensional tolerances with engineering materials like PEEK, ABS thermoplastics and a range of metals.
Laser Sintering (LS)
LS is perfect for complex, lightweight models and small-medium sized production components exposed to high-heat. Using specialized Nylon 11 & Nylon 12 materials certified for flame, smoke and toxicity, LS parts can be FR-certified.
Stereolithography (SL) & Investment Casting Patterns
For large and complex metal parts, Stereolithography delivers superb investment casting patterns. Our uniquely formulated polymer, SC 1000P.
We have critical knowledge derived from decades working with the energy industry to maximize your resources and provide AS9100 and ISO 9001-certified manufacturing facilities to ensure consistent, high quality components.
Solutions & Applications
Cutting-edge energy companies are taking advantage of 3D printing’s design freedom for complex oil and gas components.
Our team of experts work to empower engineers to take advantage of 3D printing’s benefits for a range of industry applications.

Frequently Asked Questions About Injection Molding
Do you offer molding options other than injection molding?
Although injection molding is most popular, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing offers a variety of high- and low-volume molding processes, including urethane casting and tooling for composite layup.
Contact your project engineer to learn more.
Do you manufacture tooling for injection molding operations based in the US?
Yes. We offer export Tooling built to customer requirements that can be run in our customers’ machines or at one of our US-based partner facilities.
All of our tooling has documented warranties and US-based support for repairs and engineering changes.
Are DMLS parts as strong as traditionally manufactured components?
Yes—the parts created with DMLS have mechanical properties better than a cast metal part. Detailed information can be found on the DMLS materials page.
