Fortify – Flux One Boston-based 3D printing startup has started shipping Flux One printers to customer sites. The modular platform allows the company to tailor the systems for advanced AM applications. It Launched the 3D printing platform in March.
The printer employs CKM and Fluxprint, two proprietary technologies that enable engineering additives to be incorporated and aligned for optimized performance in 3D-printed tooling applications. One primary application for the printer is mold tooling. Users can print fiber-reinforced photopolymer mold tools in days at a fraction of the cost of traditional metal tools, the company reports.
