MULTI JET FUSION BY HP - 3D PRINTING SERVICE
With groundbreaking speed and robust material properties, Multi Jet Fusion (also known as MJF or HP 3D printing) will speed your project's time to market. Our 3D Manufacturing Center is powered by 24 HP Jet Fusion 3D printers, and has the capability to produce hundreds of thousands of production parts each week. With our upgraded capacity combined with MJF's incredible speed and material properties, we can now fulfill high volume production orders - faster than ever.
HP's 3D printing technology utilizes fusing and detailing agents over a powdered nylon 12 building area, with infrared lamps fusing an entire layer in a single pass. This highly efficient method can build functional, geometrically complex parts 80 micron layers at a time - with mechanical properties that rival injection molded parts.
With this modern production process, you are not captive to traditional manufacturing design constraints or required to make large capital investments for tooling. This manufacturing process delivers parts within days, allows you to make design revisions as needed, receive parts just in time, and in turn deliver products to market faster - manufactured in the USA.
