The Fortus 450mc builds parts in the materials you’re familiar with, but with the advanced complexity and high requirements needed for today’s manufacturers. With easy-to-use interfaces and software controls, the Fortus printing systems make it easy to produce complex parts more efficiently and effectively.

Applications

For demanding applications, rely on the Fortus 450mc for high-performance materials such as FDM Nylon 12CF (carbon fiber), ULTEM resins and ST-130 soluble material for sacrificial composite tooling.

  • Complex, high-requirement parts production means you can embed hardware, circuitry, and other non-thermoplastic materials into your parts easily, with minimal downtime for changeover.
  • High-capacity material options on the 450mc increase your unattended build time up to two full weeks.
  • Advanced additive manufacturing is combined with the latest advances in FDM technology so you can expand your manufacturing business with speed, agility, and the freedom of your own designs.
  • Reduced operation and training time since Fortus systems require minimal training to operate and maintain, with a simple touchscreen interface and easy-to-replace build trays and loading options.
  • No special facility requirements mean you can install the Fortus printing systems anywhere since they produce no noxious fumes, chemicals or waste.

Applications

Prototyping

Bypass the high cost and lead time of traditional prototyping. Accelerate product development with 3D printed functional prototypes made with durable polymers. Carbon fiber, polycarbonate, PEI and PEKK are some of the strong materials available for fast prototyping to validate your design.

Jigs & Fixtures

Reduce CNC machine setup time by up to 80% and free up CNC capacity using 3D printed workholding tools. The Fortus 450mc’s design freedom and carbon fiber material let you make workholding tools faster and for less cost. Other 3D printed jigs and fixtures offer lightweighting and ergonomic benefits over machined metal tooling in addition to time and cost savings.

End-use Parts

The Fortus 450mc is the ideal on-demand solution for cost-effective manufacture of low-volume and bridge-to-production parts. Tool-less 3D printing means parts can be produced much faster and for lower cost, bypassing the traditional supply chain.
