Fortus 380mc Details
Familiar materials, firm control
Build with many of the same standard, engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics you use in traditional manufacturing processes.
Speed and efficiency
Produce complex, high-requirement parts faster than ever. Plus, get up to two weeks of unattended build time with high-capacity material options available on the 450mc.
Flexibility and control
Embed hardware or circuitry, fine-tune part performance, optimize build speed or achieve a smoother finish. Custom tool paths and other advanced features of Insight software give you ultimate control over your build parameters.
No special facility requirements
Install Fortus Systems virtually anywhere. No special venting is required because Fortus systems produce no noxious fumes, chemicals or waste with most materials.
Easy to operate and maintain
Quickly teach anyone how to load materials, replace build trays and use the simple touch-screen interface. Operation is intuitive and requires no special skills.
