Fortus 450mc


    Advanced Prototyping and Production

    Get the speed and design freedom of advanced additive manufacturing in a 3D printer designed for production. The Fortus 450mc offers a generously sized build chamber to build prototypes, end-use parts and tooling in a production environment.

    The Fortus 450mc is designed for ease of use with an intuitive touchscreen interface for a smooth, efficient workflow. Available materials include engineering grade as well as high-performance thermoplastics.

    For demanding applications, rely on the Fortus 450mc for high-performance materials such as FDM Nylon 12CF (carbon fiber), ULTEM™ resins, PEKK-based Antero materials and ST-130 soluble material for sacrificial composite tooling.

    Complex, high-requirement parts production means you can embed hardware, circuitry, and other non-thermoplastic materials into your parts easily, with minimal downtime for changeover.

    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.

    Reduced operation and training time since 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.

    Stratasys 450MC 3D Printer

    3D Print with Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber

    Fortus systems are based on Stratasys FDM technology, so you can build durable parts with production-grade and high-performance thermoplastics. The Fortus 380mc gives you the option of up to eight different materials* while the Fortus 450mc lets you build larger parts with the materials you’re familiar with as well as high-performance thermoplastics* — such as FDM Nylon 12CF (carbon fiber) and ULTEM™ resins — for specialized industries like medical, aerospace, research and defense. You can also produce custom tools, prototypes and low-volume parts with consistent static dissipative properties, chemical resistance, unprecedented strength and superior PEKK performance with Antero 840CN03.

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