ABS-M30i FDM Plastic

Production-grade Thermoplastic

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) Technology

Advantages of 3D printing ABS-M30i with a Stratasys FDM Machine

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. ABS-M30i parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

FDM systems are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce. Advanced FDM 3D Printers boast the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, delivering longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing systems, delivering high throughput, duty cycles and utilization rates.

Gain new possibilities

FDM 3D Printers streamline processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way. Industries can cut lead times and costs, products turn out better and get to market faster.
