Lindsay offers FDMTM 3D printing

Lindsay Machine Works Inc. machine shop has recently offered industrial grade plastic FDMTM 3D Printing in the Kansas City area using the Fortus 380mc 3D Printer. The Stratsys Fortus 380mc uses FDMTM (fused deposition modeling) technology. The Lindsay Machine Works’ 3D production system is designed to provide high-quality engineering grade parts. These parts can be used to create jigs and fixtures for manufacturing or to reduce the time to bring a product to market, as well as produce low volume end-use parts. From functional prototypes with exacting tolerances, to manufacturing tools that perform under pressure, the Fortus 380mc 3D Production Printing System is sets the bar high for speed, accuracy and performance.

This is the only professional 3D printing technology that uses production-grade ABS thermoplastics.

Stratasys, a 3D printer and FDM materials manufacturing company here in the United States, is responsible for the powerful Stratasys-patented additive manufacturing method or FDM (fused deposition modeling) technology.

The Fortus 380mc has even temperature distribution in the build chamber. On average, the 3D printer can build parts up to 20 percent faster with a build envelope of 14 in. x 12 in. x 12 in. (355mm x 305mm x 305mm) it can produce layer resolutions ranging from 0.005 in. to 0.013 in. (0.127mm to 0.330mm). Lindsay offers customers Standard (ABS) and Engineering (PC) materials for 3D printing.
