The HP Multi Jet Fusion is the fastest, most cost effective plastic printing solution on the market. It offers superior mechanical strength, surface finish and detail. It is the best option for 3D printed parts and prototypes where cost, mechanical and thermal properties are important. Jet Fusion supports Nylon 12 (PA) and 90A TPU elastomer.
High speed SLA offers the best surface finish and feature resolution of any 3D printing technology. It has a wide array of engineering grade plastics available like Digital ABS, polypropylene and Acrylic. Due the the exceptional print speeds it is often used as a replacement for injection molding for small part manufacturing.
Plastic 3D Printing
ColorJet prints full-color plastic models, marketing displays or cross-sections. With over 390,000 colors, ColorJet is also one of the fastest plastic printing technologies we offer.
SLS printed plastics can be manufactured with a range of mechanical properties. They are strong, durable and have high heat and chemical resistance.
Able to print products up to one meter in length, large format printing offers the biggest industrial bed size for 3D printed plastics. Great for tooling, molds and direct investment casting.
FDM produces inexpensive and durable 3D printed plastic parts with very high accuracy in a wide range of materials. It is well-suited for medium and large parts, less effective for fine details.
Metal 3D Printing
Direct metal printing is the best option for production runs of high-quality 3D printed metal parts. It is a great choice for orders that are too large to be machined but not large enough to justify the expense of metal injection molding. Available for a variety of stainless steels and alloys.
DMLS is able to print metal parts from a range of materials, including exotic metals like Inconel and titanium. It accurately produces complex geometries and printed metal parts that are strong, durable and heat resistant.
Metal printing manufactures strong, durable parts out of stainless steel bronze alloy. It is the least expensive option for 3D printed metal and is good for quickly producing small runs of parts or high-quality metal prototypes.
