A true industrial thermoplastic, PC (polycarbonate) is widely used in automotive, aerospace, medical and many other applications. PC offers accuracy, durability and stability, creating strong parts that withstand functional testing. A PC part manufactured on a Fortus® 3D Production System is 5 to 60 percent stronger than a part made on previous FDM® systems. It also has superior mechanical properties to ABS and a number of other thermoplastics. When combined with a Fortus 3D Production System, PC gives you strong parts for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and end-use parts. PC runs the Xtend 500 Fortus Plus option, which enables more than 400 hours of unattended build time.
Only compatible in machines with the Engineering Materials upgrade.
Printer may need upgrade to run Xtend 500.
