High Performance Production Systems
Build parts as large as 355 x 305 x 305 mm (14 x 12 x 12 in.) significantly faster than the Fortus 360mc, especially for complex geometries. The Fortus 380mc offers the same fast build time as the 400mc, and works with seven standard and engineering thermoplastics.
Build parts as large as 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.). The Fortus 450mc works with 9 standard, engineering and high-performance thermoplastics.
Fortus 380mc and 450mc Materials
Both 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
The Fortus 450mc also works with ULTEM 9085 for high strength-to-weight ratio and favorable FST rating. ULTEM 1010 compatibility is coming in 2015.
