Stratasys helps with Space Station's Mobile Freezers

Published 06/01/2015

ULTEM 9085 is most known for being a high temperature and chemical resistant material but did you know that it can also be used for under freezing conditions? Stratasys had the recent opportunity to assist with engineers and scientist at The University of Alabama Birmingham Center for Biophysical Sciences and Engineering. They were in the works of developing freezer units capable of reaching temperatures as low as -160°C. Their most recent project, The Polar Unit, is one of their first designs incorporating 3D printed components. By using this technology, it helped save significant interior space of the freezer!
