Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), the manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, announced that it has received a coveted Gold Award at this year’s Concours Lépine International Inventions Exhibition, held recently within the Foire de Paris event, in France.

Stratasys was awarded the Gold Medal after the company submitted a patent for a breakthrough pseudo composite material which offers innovative benefits in the manufacture of 3D printed parts and prototypes.

Using Stratasys’ highly precise PolyJet technology, the pseudo composite material, which boasts a multi-phase structure and pre-designed properties — including mechanical, thermo-mechanical, acoustical, optical and electrical, enables the design and formation of numerous combinations of materials.

“As it has for 112 years, the Concours Lépine continues to showcase pioneering creations from the most imaginative ideas, ” says Gérard Dorey, President of the Concours Lépine. “Stratasys’ entry to the competition perfectly typifies the fundamental inventiveness that our judging panel are seeking, while also upholding the pre-requisite criteria of ingeniousness and economic viability.”

According to the Concours Lépine’s 2013 judging committee, Stratasys won the prestigious award in recognition of the innovative characteristics of the material and the ground-breaking functionality it affords users. The material also makes it possible to design and test prototypes that are very close to the desired end-user part in terms of mechanical properties and material combinations.

Having been selected by the competition’s President and Jury Members comprising different organizations and institutions, Stratasys was presented the Gold Medal accolade at an official awards ceremony, which also marked the end of the internationally-renowned, Concours Lépine.

As well as the awards competition, the 13-day long event provides a platform for the world’s inventor community to unveil and display their innovations to the general public. The 2013 edition welcomed around six-hundred inventors, a third of them from abroad.
