Polyamide 3D printing,
without the lasers
HP spread waves of excitement throughout the 3D printing world with the announcement of the Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology. In close collaboration with HP, Materialise is privileged to have priority access to MJF.
Why choose HP Multi Jet Fusion?
HP Multi Jet Fusion uses a fine-grained PA 12 material that allows for ultra-thin layers of 80 microns. This leads to parts with high density and low porosity, compared to PA 12 parts produced with Laser Sintering. It also leads to an exceptionally smooth surface straight out of the printer, and functional parts need minimal post-production finishing. That means short lead times, ideal for functional prototypes and small series of end-parts.
Ideal applications for HP Multi Jet Fusion
Low-volume production of complex end-use parts
Prototypes for form, fit and function testing
Prototypes with mechanical properties to rival those of injection-molded parts
Series of small components as a cost-effective alternative to injection molding
