Yangzhou Chengsen Plastics Co.,Ltd | Updated: Aug 23, 2018

Stratasys carbon-fiber-filled Nylon 12Stratasys, a global leader in additive manufacturing or 3D printing technology, and manufacturer of FDM  and PolyJet 3D Printers, is now offering an affordably priced additive manufacturing system dedicated for carbon-fiber-filled Nylon 12. Stratasys has now started supplying its Fortus 380mc Carbon Fiber Edition, an industrial quality system, at $70,000 in the US.

Demand for the composite material is rising year-over-year between 8 to 12 percent. U.S. Department of Energy considers carbon fiber composite applications and carbon fiber reinforced polymers as clean energy technologies because of their light-weighing characteristics that helps in reducing energy consumption. A ten percent reduction in vehicle mass results in six to eight percent increase in fuel economy.

Stratasys till recently offered the material only on high-end production 3D printers in the $200K-$350K range. Pat Carey, Senior Vice President of Sales, Stratasys, said, “Our customers are pushing us for easier access to carbon fiber. They’ve told us they want an affordable solution but in a reliable, industrial-quality system. So we’re now offering a more accessible system that’s based on our Fortus 380mc platform. Because the 380mc CFE is dedicated only to carbon-fiber-filled Nylon 12 and one other material, we’re able to currently offer it at the lowest price for any of our industrial printers.”

Terry Wohlers of Wohlers Associates, an additive manufacturing industry consultancy, commented, “For many years, the additive manufacturing industry has seen a need for a diversity of machines that produce parts in high-strength composite materials. I’m hopeful the newest machine from Stratasys will help to meet this need by offering strong parts in carbon fiber and Nylon 12.”
