Xtend 500 Fortus Plus is a new high-volume material box for Fortus 3D Production Systems, offering five times the output of standard canisters.
Designed for reliable and unattended high-volume use, each Xtend 500 box contains 500 cubic inches of FDM thermoplastic material, delivering more than five times the output of standard canisters. When two material boxes are loaded into a Fortus 3D Production System, users can expect up to 400 hours of unattended run time and up to 1,000 cubic inches of material use.
Xtend 500 gives users the freedom of fewer material changeovers, resulting in streamlined 3D production. This feature can also contribute to reduced operation costs. "For our customers, and 3D printing in general, developing a larger volume package is a huge step in navigating away from day-to-day 3D printer planning and operations," said
By implementing Xtend 500, manufacturers with prototyping needs and service bureaus producing large parts will benefit from reduced material changeovers, as well as logistical savings in shipping and storage. Xtend 500 is available in ABS-M30 (ivory and black) and PC and their respective support materials for the Fortus 450mc 3D Production System.
Owners of Fortus 360mc, 400mc and 900mc 3D Production Systems can also take advantage of Xtend 500 with a Fortus Plus system upgrade. Most system owners will benefit from streamlined logistics when they share material stock across systems.
