The Fortus 400mc™ is part of Stratasys’ High Performance line-up, which is specifically designed for manufacturing large models, which can be used for conceptual models, functional testing, tooling and end-use applications. The 400mc is available in two volume options: the basic system with a maximum build volume of 355 x 254 x 254 mm (14 x 10 x 10 in.); or an optionally upgraded system with a build envelope as big as 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.). Furthermore, the upgraded system features two material bays for maximum uninterrupted productions.
The Fortus 400mc is a top performer and with the ability to speed up the production by adjusting the resolution it is possible to decrease the build time without compromising the geometric accuracy. The throughput speed is twice as fast as that of the Fortus 250mc™. The 400mc has been used for the most complex geometries creating everything from jigs and fixtures to components being used in NASA's lunar rovers.
Pick your Precision
The Fortus 400mc features four different layer thicknesses to choose from. The printing settings can be managed easily to optimize the precision or the speed, or to find the perfect balance between the finest possible feature detail and the fastest build. When set to the highest resolution mode, the 400mc is able to print with a 0.005 inch layer thickness, providing a smooth surface and finish that is almost indistinguishable from an injection-molded object.
The 400mc is compatible with nine materials, which include high-performance thermoplastics for biocompatibility, static dissipation and resistance to heat and chemicals.
