SYS Engineers demonstrated the advanced capabilities of Stratasys’ 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing systems at the recent TCT Show, NEC Birmingham. 3D Printers on display included the high-performance Fortus 450, this innovative production system allows users to build, accurate, repeatable parts faster than ever before. The Fortus 450 is able to produce jigs, fixtures, factory tooling and end-use parts, as well as functional prototypes. With four layer thicknesses to choose from, users can strike the right balance between strength, detail and rapid build time.
Martin Hamill discusses the latest technologies the Stratasys Fortus range offers and the key features of the new material “Ultem 1010”. See TCT Show Review Part 1 here:
Available on the Fortus 3D Production Systems, ULTEM 1010 resin offers the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength of any FDM thermoplastic. It is the only FDM material with an NSF 51 food-contact certification, and it’s biocompatible with an ISO 10993/USP Class VI certification.
The material allows you to produce large custom tools for metal, plastic or composite parts fabrication; 3D print medical tools like surgical guides that can withstand steam autoclaving; build temperature-resistant dies, patterns and fixtures for food production; even manufacture out-of-cabin aerospace components and under-the-hood automotive components including housings, ducts and semi-structural components.
