Stratasys introduces a cross-over 3D printer
15 July 2011
Stratasys has introduced the Fortus 250mc production 3D printer – a rapid prototyping and production machine designed to give users the convenience of a Dimension 3D Printer with the flexibility of a Fortus Production 3D Printer. Fortus 250mc, the company’s first cross-over system, combines the ease-of-use and affordability of Stratasys’ Dimension 3D Printers with the control of Insight Software, used to drive the Fortus line of production 3D printers.
With Insight, users will have added control of build speed, part accuracy, and feature detail. Like all Stratasys additive manufacturing systems, the Fortus 250mc is based on the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) process.
The Fortus 250mc has a 254 x 254 x 305 mm (10 x 10 x 12 in.) build envelope and offers three build layer options: 0.007, 0.010 and 0.013 in. (0.178, 0.254 and 0.330 mm). To create parts, the machine uses ABSplus thermoplastic, which offers excellent mechanical proprieties, including impact strength, tensile strength, flexural strength, and bonding strength for tough, functional applications. ABSplus comes in ivory, white, blue, fluorescent yellow, black, red, nectarine, olive green and gray colours.
The Fortus 250mc, which uses Stratasys SR-30 soluble support material for a fast dissolve time, is supported by a 12-month warranty and is shipping now.
