Take a look at the Fortus 450mc
Workhorse production 3D printers:
Production 3D Printing
Workhorse 3D printer for engineers that require demanding flexibility to print larger-sized or many parts in an array of engineering-grade materials with high speed and unfailing throughput.
Take designs from virtual to real in hours, not weeks. From functional prototypes with exacting tolerances, to manufacturing tools that perform under pressure, the Fortus 450mc 3D production system sets a high bar for speed, performance and accuracy.
Fortus 450mc Key Features
Fast, reliable, repeatable production 3D printing
The Fortus machine has a large build size at 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in).
The Fortus 450mc features an all-new touchscreen interface for straightforward operation and maintenance.
The Fortus 380/450mc can build complex parts faster than it’s predecessors, and offers the same fast build time as other production machines.

ABS-ESD7 thermoplastic Stratasys 3D printing material has static dissipative properties for applications where a static charge can damage products, impair their performance or cause an explosion.
ABS-M30 is ideal for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and production parts. ABS-M30 has greater strength than standard ABS.
ABS-M30i is a Stratasys biocompatible 3D printing material perfectly suited for medical, pharmaceutical and food-packaging applications.
Antero 800NA PEKK-based thermoplastic combines FDM’s design freedom with the excellent mechanical properties and low outgassing characteristics of PEKK.
Outdoor-use production parts benefit from the strength, colour choice and UV resistance of ASA material
FDM Nylon 12
FDM Nylon 12 combines strength with excellent fatigue properties suitable for repetitive closures, snap fits and vibration-resistant parts.
FDM Nylon 12CF
FDM Nylon 12CF combines strength with excellent fatigue properties suitable for repetitive closures, snap fits and vibration-resistant parts.
PC (polycarbonate) material is widely used in automotive, aerospace, medical and many other applications. PC offers accuracy, durability and stability.
PC-ABS is a high-impact engineering thermoplastic with heat resistance ideal for functional prototyping, tooling and low-volume manufacturing
PC-ISO is a bio-compatible FDM thermoplastic that lets engineers create prototypes, molds and products in a heat-resistant material for the pharmaceutical, food packaging and medical industries.
ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling
ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling material simplifies the production of hollow composite parts. Complex tools can be 3D printed and easily dissolved after curing.
ULTEM 1010 resin is one of the strongest Stratasys FDM thermoplastics, possessing high heat resistance and thermal stability for 3D printed parts.
Fortus 450mc Benefits
Lets you build, accurate, repeatable parts faster than ever before
GrabCAD Print™ software simplifies the entire 3D printing process with an intuitive CAD-like application anyone on your team can use. And with features like detailed reporting and remote monitoring, you can easily manage your print jobs from outside the office.
Combined with the ability to seamlessly share projects between users, it all adds up to a more streamlined, efficient workflow.
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.
