Fortus 360mc / 400mc
Build Strong, Accurate Parts
An expanding selection of production-grade thermoplastics means you can handle a growing list of demands for prototyping, functional testing, tooling and low-volume manufacturing.
A 3D Production System You Control
For stringent functional testing, you need the agility to adjust every build parameter. From size and orientation to layer thickness, the Fortus 360mc and 400mc 3D Production Systems put you firmly in control.
Each system produces accurate, durable, repeatable parts in familiar production-grade thermoplastics. Driven by FDM Technology and powerful Insight software, they let you strike your desired balance between FDM’s finest feature detail and the quickest build. You can specify tool paths, adjust material density, fine-tune part orientation and choose from four available layer resolutions.
Choose the size that best fits your application. The standard size lets you build parts as large as 355 x 254 x 254 mm (14 x 10 x 10 in.) with easy, front-loading bays for model and support material. The larger size features dual material bays for uninterrupted production and produces parts up to 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.).
The Fortus 360mc builds in five real thermoplastics.
The Fortus 400mc builds in 12 real thermoplastics for applications that require high-performance, biocompatibility, static dissipation or resistance to heat, chemicals or UV radiation. It is upgradeable, so you pay only for the features you need.
Choose from two configurations of the Fortus 360/400mc 3D Production System. These systems have different build sizes and material bays, but both were designed for the most challenging applications requiring meticulous accuracy and precise repeatability.
- High accuracy and repeatability
- High resolution and feature detail
- Two build envelope options
- Multiple build colors
Effectively evaluate, optimize and communicate your product design with FDM concept models. Used in early stages of product development, FDM models reduce costs and shorten development timelines.
As your product’s design evolves from concept to prototype, FDM plays an important role in testing. FDM prototypes use industrial-grade thermoplastics, allowing you to test in real-world environments and make decisions that have a dramatic effect on the cost to manufacture your product.
On the manufacturing floor, time is money. FDM can reduce the time it takes to get assembly tools by up to 85%. You can produce jigs, fixtures, assembly aids and even production tooling in hours – without machining or tooling.
End Use Parts
Without the expense and lead time of traditional tooling or machining, FDM production parts are tough enough for integration into your final product. Ideal for building small quantities of parts while waiting for tooling, FDM makes it possible to get your products to market faster.
