Fortus 380/450mc

High-Performance FDM Systems

The Fortus 380mc and 450mc 3D production systems let you build, accurate, repeatable parts faster than ever before. Build with many of the same standard, engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics you use in traditional manufacturing processes.

Produce jigs, fixtures, factory tooling and end-use parts, as well as functional prototypes to withstand stringent testing. With four layer thicknesses to choose from, you can strike the right balance between strength, detail, and FDM’s fastest build time.

For maximum time savings, Fortus 380mc and 450mc build complex parts faster than their predecessors. Both feature an all-new touchscreen interface for straightforward operation and maintenance. Thanks to the intuitive operation, it requires no special skils, quickly teach anyone how to load materials, replace build trays and use the simple touch screen interface.

Fortus 380/450mc systems work with these production-grade thermoplastics:

  • ABS-M30 in six colours for great tensile, impact and flexural strength and environmental stability
  • ABS-M30i for biocompatibility
  • ABS-ESD7 for static dissipation
  • ASA for UV stability and the best aesthetics
  • PC-ISO for biocompatibility and superior strength
  • PC for superior mechanical properties and heat resistance
  • FDM Nylon 12 for maximum toughness

The Fortus 450mc also works with ULTEM 9085 for high strength-to-weight ratio and favourable FST rating, and ULTEM 1010 is now available.

Material Delivery:
380mc: One bay each for material and support canisters
450mc: Two bays each for material and support canisters

Auto changeover between canisters
