Stratays Fortus Production 3D Printers

Familiar Materials, Firm Control

The 3D Printing Solution for your Advanced Manufacturing Program

The Fortus 380mc and 450mc let you build parts in the materials you're familiar with, but with the advanced complexity and high requirements needed for today's manufacturers. Agile enough to use 10 different materials and loaded with easy-to-use interfaces and software controls, the Fortus printing systems enable you to produce complex parts more efficiently and effectively than ever before.

Get the latest FDM® technology for advanced prototyping and production:

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.

Fewer production system breakdowns because the printing system is built with many of the same standard, engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics used in traditional manufacturing processes.

Operation and training time is reduced for your employees as the 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 means you can install the Fortus printing systems anywhere since they produce no noxious fumes, chemicals or waste with most materials. Especially important in an education environment.

Fortus systems are based on Stratasys FDM technology, so you can build durable parts in production-grade thermoplastics. The Fortus 380mc gives you the option of up to eight different materials*, while the Fortus 450mc allows for building larger parts in those familiar materials, as well as in the high-performance materials* needed for specialized industries like medical, aerospace, research and defense. Create these high-performance and complex parts without the need for additional employee training, as the Fortus systems come equipped with an intuitive touchscreen interface for an efficient workflow.

*Standard and engineering thermoplastics: Both the Fortus 380mc and 450mc. High-performance thermoplastics and sacrificial tooling material: Fortus 450mc only.

ACCURACY

Parts are produced within an accuracy of ± .127 mm (± .005 in.) or ± .0015 mm/mm (± .0015 in/in), whichever is greater).
Z part accuracy includes an additional tolerance of -0.000/+slice height.
Note: Accuracy is geometry-dependent. Achievable accuracy specification derived from statistical data at 95% dimensional yield.

Embrace rapid manufacturing

One of the rewards of the 3D printing revolution is the ability to begin production without the delay and expense of tooling, and to produce customized, geometrically complex products free from traditional manufacturing constraints.

Now you can realize revenue without time-consuming inventory management. With in-house, on-demand production, inventory becomes a digital file at your fingertips.

GrabCAD Print software makes 3D printing easy, accessible, and connected for Stratasys 3D Printers. Read and understand CAD files natively to help you simplify the preparation, scheduling, monitoring, and reporting of all your print jobs. GrabCAD Print offers an efficient workflow that streamlines job management in shared office and model shop environments using Stratasys 3D Printers.

  • Print directly from CAD
  • Stay up to date with notifications
  • Monitor material levels
  • Organize print queues

Insight Software lets you print directly from your favorite CAD formats, eliminating the STL conversion and adjusting you used to do before printing. Optimize your productions with advanced control options that automatically adjust support structures and material extrusion paths, while giving you the ability to pause production in order to change materials or embed hardware or circuitry. Control Center lets you seamlessly share project information between users, creating a more streamlined, efficient workflow.

  • All Fortus systems include Insight and Control Center job processing and management software.
  • Compatible with GrabCAD Print for use with job reports, scheduling and remote monitoring.

AET Lab’s is pleased to offer Insight training for advanced manufacturing applications on-site or in our Essex, MA training space. For details or to reserve a spot in our next session.
