Harness the speed, cost and material advantages of industrial FDM additive manufacturing. The Fortus 450mc 3D printer delivers accurate, reliable performance that lets you transform supply chains, accelerate manufacturing and reduce production costs.
Exploit a broad range of materials to handle applications in virtually any industry. Standard thermoplastics support general 3D printing applications and also include ESD compliant and biocompatible versions of ABS. Engineering and high-performance materials including nylon, carbon fiber, PEI and PEKK provide the right properties for demanding applications.
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 & Workholding
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.
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.
