Build Tough Functional Prototypes, Production Tooling and End-Use Parts Reliably & On-Demand. Gain a competitive advantage with the benefits of Additive Manufacturing. Build tough functional prototypes, production tooling and end-use parts reliably and on demand.
Take designs from virtual to real in hours, not weeks. From functional prototypes with exacting tolerances, to manufacturing tools that perform under pressure, the Fortus 450mc 3D production system possesses unparalleled repeatability, speed, and accuracy, with a wide selection of high-performance, production-grade engineering thermoplastics.
High-Performance FDM System
The Fortus 450mc 3D production system represents the latest FDM advancements, with superior ease of use and the ability to build complex parts faster than previous generations. The Fortus 450mc builds parts as large as 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.) and features two material bays for maximum uninterrupted production, letting you build accurate, repeatable parts faster than ever before. Produce jigs, fixtures, factory tooling and production parts, as well as functional prototypes to withstand stringent testing.
The 450mc builds in 12 real thermoplastics for applications that require high-performance, bio-compatibility, static dissipation or resistance to heat, chemicals or UV radiation. With four layer thicknesses to choose from, you can fine-tune your desired balance between FDM’s finest possible feature detail and the fastest build. Conquer advanced 3D printing applications with a Fortus 450mc.
