3D Printer

High Performance Direct Digital Manufacturing

Get the speed and design freedom of advanced additive manufacturing in a 3D printer designed for production. The Fortus 450mc offers a generously sized build chamber to build prototypes, end-use parts, and tooling in a production environment.

The Fortus 450mc is designed for ease of use with an intuitive touchscreen interface for a smooth, efficient workflow. Available materials include engineering-grade as well as high-performance thermoplastics.

For demanding applications, rely on the Fortus 450mc for high-performance materials such as FDM Nylon 12CF (carbon fiber), ULTEM™ resins, PEKK-based Antero materials, 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.
