Fortus 450mc Benefits
Production Parts & Tooling
Printing a low-volume production run with a Fortus machines can maximize sales opportunities while minimizing cost and lead time because there’s no minimum quantity requirement. Plus, part complexity doesn’t add time or cost, so production can begin as soon as the CAD files are sent to the 3D production system.
The Fortus systems provide a fast and accurate means of producing tooling. The efficiency of the FDM 3D Printing process makes it practical to optimize tooling design.
Easy to operate & safe to use
Compared to other additive fabrication systems, Fortus 3D Production Systems are easy to operate and maintain as there are no messy powders to handle and contain. They’re so simple, an operator can be trained to operate a Fortus system in less than 30 minutes.
You can install a Fortus 3D Production System just about anywhere. No special venting is required because Fortus systems produce no noxious fumes, chemicals or waste.
