Production-Grade Thermoplastic for Fortus 3D Production Systems
A true industrial thermoplastic, PC (polycarbonate) is widely used in automotive, aerospace, medical and many other applications. Polycarbonate thermoplastic offers accuracy, durability and stability, creating strong parts that withstand functional testing.
The high tensile and flexural strength of PC, makes it ideal for demanding prototyping needs, tooling and fixtures. It allows low volume manufacturing and customisation, and testing provides more confidence.
A PC part manufactured on a Fortus 3D Production System is 5 to 60 percent stronger than a part made on previous FDM systems. It also has superior mechanical properties to ABS and a number of other thermoplastics. When combined with a Fortus 3D Production System, PC gives you strong parts for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and end-use parts. PC runs the Xtend 500 Fortus Plus option, which enables more than 400 hours of unattended build time
