Sometimes, one material at a time just isn’t enough
PolyJet offers the unique ability to print parts and assemblies made of multiple model materials, with different mechanical or physical properties, all in a single build. So you can confidently order parts of unparalleled complexity, made of several materials and colors, and with the finish of a high-quality end product.
How Does PolyJet Work?
PolyJet works by jetting photopolymer materials in ultra-thin layers onto a build platform. Each photopolymer layer is cured by UV light immediately after it is jetted, producing fully cured models that can be handled and used immediately, without post-curing. The gel-like support material, designed to support complicated geometries, is subsequently removed by water jetting.
Why choose PolyJet?
PolyJet technology enables horizontal layers of just 16 µm (0.0006"), fine details, and ultra-thin walls down to 0.6 mm (0.024") depending on the geometry of the part. That means PolyJet is capable of building very precise mechanical components, offering you high-quality prototypes for a shorter time to market.
