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?
The HP Multi Jet Fusion produces the least expensive, most durable and fastest 3D printed nylon parts on the market.
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. Simply put, the HP Multi Jet Fusion is the best industrial 3D printer for most additive manufacturing applications, bar none.
3D Printed Plastic: No Tooling Costs, No Setup Fees and No Sacrifice in Performance
Traditional plastic manufacturing techniques like machining or injection molding require tooling and other setup costs for every project. This leads to a higher cost per unit on small runs and a longer production schedule.
3D printing with the HP Multi Jet Fusion enables businesses to manufacture plastic parts without any tooling or setup costs, saving time and expense. This allows for highly customizable, agile manufacturing with excellent value for small to medium-sized production runs. In our fast-paced modern economy, 3D printing can help improve businesses’ competitive advantage by taking products to market faster and at less cost than ever before.
RapidMade offers durable 3D printed nylon products 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, eliminating the need for extensive inventory and large upfront orders.
The Fastest 3D Printing
Don’t let its size fool you: the HP Multi Jet Fusion is the fastest 3D printer on the block, with industry-leading production speeds up to 50 times faster than other 3D printing technologies land cost reductions of up to 50% in comparison to SLS and FDM.
So, what’s the catch?
There isn’t one! In addition to being cheaper and faster, HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing 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|
|Cost Reduction||30 - 50%||30 - 300%||10 - 75%|
|Production Speed||6 - 50x||9 - 18x||5 - 12x|
¹ Compared to typical costs and print times for Colorjet, FDM, SLS, SLA and other standard 3D print technology.
² Compared to typical tooling/part cost and lead time of 4 - 8 weeks, order sizes of 100 - 1000 units.
³ Compared to typical cost and lead time of 3 - 6 weeks for plastic parts, 1 - 1000 units.
Nylon PA-12: Better and Stronger
With 3D printed nylon parts, you get industrial-strength products with guaranteed precision, every time. The production-grade Nylon PA-12 used by the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer offers unprecedented mechanical strength for 3D printed plastic parts along with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and high-quality surface finish. Whether you are creating functional rapid prototypes, industrial-grade parts or consumer products, Nylon PA-12 provides superior value and performance compared to any other 3D printed plastic on the market.
Its fully dense and nearly isometric mechanical properties ensure strength and durability on every axis. Nylon PA-12 has high chemical and heat resistance and boasts a part accuracy of +/-.008”. Moreover, it has USP Class I-VI medical certifications and has passed US and EU toy safety standards for chemical exposure.
3D Printed Rapid Tooling for Thermoforming, Urethane Casting and More
Because of its fine detail, high speed and low cost, the Multi Jet Fusion is ideal for quickly producing tooling for use with other manufacturing technologies. That means that you can use MJF 3D printing to optimize your supply chain even if your end product is thermoformed, cast or injection molded.
3D printed tooling and master patterns can help businesses get the most from their product development cycles reducing the cost and time of iteration. Moreover, when combined with a technology like urethane casting, 3D printed master patterns can produce very inexpensive parts that rival the quality and detail of injection molded parts in a fraction of the time.
