Additive manufacturing technology is dramatically changing how things are made, and Fortus® 3D Production Systems from Stratasys® are at the forefront of this transformation.
Fortus systems are designed with flexibility to meet the user’s needs, whether it’s adopting digital manufacturing for the first time or getting high-performance materials and high capacity for demanding production environments.
The latest Fortus 3D Production Systems boast faster print times and improvements in the user interface. That ultimately means they’re easier to use and increase productivity even further than previous models.
Fortus systems run on FDM® technology, which builds parts layer by layer from a CAD model using a variety of production-grade thermoplastics. With FDM technology, the fabrication process is substantially simplified. Toolmaking becomes less expensive and time-consuming. Intricate designs that are impossible to make with conventional tooling are now possible. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality.
FDM technology also offers a wide range of production-grade thermoplastics, each with specific qualities to meet different manufacturing needs. Whether it’s the familiar family of ABS thermoplastics or advanced materials certified for aircraft components, biocompatibility or food contact, there’s an FDM material that will meet the challenge. Whether the objective is developing prototypes or production parts, the resulting component is made from the same durable material as traditional injection molded parts.
