ABS-M30i is a high strength material well suited for the medical, pharmaceutical and food packaging industries. Parts manufactured with ABS-M30i material are biocompatible (ISO 10993 USP Class VI)* and can be gamma or EtO sterilized.
When combined with Stratasys FDM 3D Printers, ABS-M30i gives you biocompatible parts with excellent mechanical properties that are well suited for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and production parts.
*It is the responsibility of the finished device manufacturer to determine the suitability of all the component parts and materials used in their finished products.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer
Tough long-lasting parts
FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.
Meet production demands
Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.
With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.
Gain new possibilities
TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.
Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
