The Fortus 400mc prints parts in a variety of materials; two highly demanded options are ULTEM 9085 and ABS-M30i. ULTEM 9085 is a flame retardant high performance thermoplastic highly valued for its high strength-to-weight ratio and its flame, smoke, and toxicity rating. This material is useful for aerospace, automotive and military applications.
The second material, ABS-M30i, is a high strength material, suitable for medical and pharmaceutical applications requiring the strength and heat resistance of polycarbonate, the flexibility of ABS, and excellent feature definition and surface finish. The Fortus 400mc uses multiple layers by heating thermoplastic material to a semi-liquid state and extruding it according to computer-controlled paths. This process is ideal for anyone looking for strong, durable production parts.
