Reimagine Manufacturing with HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing
Have you ever heard the old adage which says that you can do something quickly, cheaply, or well, but not all three?
With RapidMade, you don’t have to choose.
RapidMade uses the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer to provide our customers with better products, faster and at less cost. Set your production free from the design limitations of traditional manufacturing—render intricate shapes with precision and durability every time.
When complexity, performance, and cost are all essential, there’s no need to compromise.
No Tooling Costs, No Setup Fees, No Sacrifice in Performance
Traditional manufacturing techniques like machining or injection molding require tooling and other setup costs for every project. This leads to a higher per unit cost on small runs and a longer production schedule.
RapidMade offers plastic products at or below the cost of traditional manufacturing that ship in 1-5 business days. Plus, our digital workflow means that you can order more units whenever you need them.
3D Printing at Warp Speed
Don’t let its size fool you: the HP Multi Jet Fusion is the quickest kid on the block, with industry-leading production speeds up to 50 times faster than other 3D printing technologies and cost reductions of up to 50%.
So, what’s the catch?
There isn’t one! In addition to being cheaper and faster, HP Jet Fusion offers superior surface finish, detail resolution, and strength when compared to ColorJet, selective laser sintering, fused deposition modeling, and stereolithography.
RapidMade and HP Multi Jet Fusion printing will provide measurable benefits to your production on the first run.
|Process||Other 3D Printing¹||Injection Molding²||Machining³|
