After being in the additive manufacturing business for the better part of three decades, we’ve seen and utilized many 3D printers. Some we really liked, and others are not worth the hype.
One model we’ve stood by and operate every day is the HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printer. Whether we are producing prototypes or are in full-swing production, we know the HP Printer will provide the parts we promise. Here’s why.
1. Excellent Detail and Surface Quality
The HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printer sets itself apart through its printed parts’ detail and surface quality. The precision achieved is remarkable, allowing designers and engineers to scrutinize every detail and angle of their creations. Importantly, rapid 3D prototyping doesn’t mean sacrificing quality.
2. Accuracy within Thousandths of an Inch
With our HP printers, precision is not just a goal; it’s a guarantee. The technology ensures accuracy within thousandths of an inch, providing an invaluable level of reliability in the prototyping phase. It doesn’t matter if you’re printing a large or small part; you want to know that your part is the right size. A guarantee like this is essential when you have a design with complex pieces.
3. Show-Quality Appearance with Production Functionality
Beyond mere prototyping, this 3D printer allows for finishing and painting, achieving a show-quality appearance. This aesthetic enhancement keeps the production functionality of various features, including intricate elements like snap-and-clip features.
4. Rapid Delivery of Prototypes
In the world of rapid product development, time is money, and we want to save you both. The HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printer delivers most parts within a few working days, drastically expediting the iterative design process and bringing your 3D print to your order quicker.
5. Prototyping in End-Use, Production-Grade PA12 Nylon Material
Through our experience, we have discovered that not all 3D printers are equal. The HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printer allows end-use, production-grade PA12 nylon material prototyping. The high-quality material ensures that the prototypes not only test fit but also reflect the material characteristics of the final product.
1. No Traditional Manufacturing Constraints
The HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printer allows designers to think outside the box, allowing new designs and ideas to break free from traditional manufacturing constraints.
2. Durable PA12 Nylon Material
In the realm of production, durability is non-negotiable. When you spend money on a custom part, you expect it to last. The printer utilizes PA12 nylon material, known for its robustness and resilience. The high-quality material ensures that the 3D model can withstand the rigors of real-world usage.
Traditional manufacturing processes often have significant costs, especially regarding tooling and molds. The HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printer eliminates these expenses, offering a cost-efficient alternative for small to medium-scale production runs.
4. No Mold Costs
Molds can be a substantial upfront investment in traditional manufacturing. 3D printing technology eliminates mold costs, making it a financially appealing choice for production.
5. Ability to Modify the Design on the Fly
In the repetitious process of production, modifications are inevitable. The programming of the 3D printer allows designers to adjust the design as needed, ensuring that the final product aligns perfectly with evolving requirements.
6. Reduced Time to Market
The most compelling advantage is the significant reduction in time to market. The HP Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printer accelerates the production cycle, enabling companies to introduce their products to market faster. Quicker lead times mean a crucial edge over the competition.
Gone are the days when 3D printing and additive manufacturing were questionable for final production. Today, you’ll find high-quality 3D-printed parts in the cars you drive, the planes you fly in, and the satellites that bring you your daily information. And the tech we use is just beginning to show off what we’re capable of. The years ahead hold many promises of technological advancement that will continue to make our products safer and more reliable.
