Jigs, fixtures and workholding

Reduce CNC machine setup time by up to 80% and free up CNC capacity using 3D printed workholding tools. The Fortus 450mc’s design freedom and carbon fiber material let you make workholding tools faster and for less cost. Other 3D printed jigs and fixtures offer lightweighting and ergonomic benefits over machined metal tooling in addition to time and cost savings.

End-use parts

The Fortus 450mc is the ideal on-demand solution for cost-effective manufacture of low-volume and bridge-to-production parts. Tool-less 3D printing means parts can be produced much faster and for lower cost, bypassing the traditional supply chain.

The alternative to CNC machining.

When challenged to find alternative solutions to traditional manufacturing methods, the team at UK-based John Crane looked to 3D printing and settled on the Fortus 450mc. It wasn’t long before that investment made an immediate impact on the manufacturer’s production process. See how the industrial grade Fortus 450mc helps John Crane overcome traditional manufacturing challenges and grow its 3D printing capability from tooling to production parts.
