Advanced Prototyping and Production

The Fortus 380mc and 450mc build 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.

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.

A workhorse 3D printer for engineers that require demanding flexibility to print larger-sized or many parts in an array of engineering-grade materials with high speed and unfailing throughput, on a printer that performs with reliability, repeatability, and durability unmatched in the industry.

System Highlights

  • Widest variety of material options and custom configurations
  • Larger build envelope and multiple material bays for longer, unattended operation
  • Best surface finish and feature detail
  • Capable of multi-colored parts in a single build

The Fortus 380mc and 450mc systems work with these production-grade thermoplastics:

  • ABS-M30 in six colors for great tensile, impact and flexural strength and environmental stability
  • ABS-M30i for biocompatibility
  • ABS-ESD7 for static dissipation
  • ASA for UV stability and the best aesthetics
  • PC-ISO for biocompatibility and superior strength
  • PC for superior mechanical properties and heat resistance
  • FDM Nylon 12 for maximum toughness
  • ULTEM 9085 for high strength-to-weight ratio and favorable FST rating (450mc only)

See the materials tab for more information.

Fortus systems are based on Stratasys FDM technology, so you can build durable parts in production-grade and high-performance thermoplastics. The Fortus 380mc gives you the option of up to eight different materials*. The Fortus 450mc lets you build larger parts with those familiar materials, as well as high-performance thermoplastics* such as FDM Nylon 12CF (carbon fiber) and ULTEM resins, for specialized industries like medical, aerospace, research and defense. Create high-performance and complex parts without the need for additional employee training, as the Fortus systems come equipped with an intuitive touchscreen interface for an efficient workflow.

*Standard and engineering thermoplastics: Both the Fortus 380mc and 450mc. High-performance thermoplastics and sacrificial tooling material: Fortus 450mc only.
