Production Parts

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.

Fortus 450mc Touchpad
