Fast, High-quality 3D Printed Parts

Powder-bed printing with higher resolution, smoother surface finish and superior production throughput

HP Jet Fusion technology shares many aspects with traditional powder-bed technologies – but with a few key improvements.

HP 3D printing technolgoy uses engineering-grade thermoplastics, typically Nylon, which is capable of producing complex, organic geometries due to the lack of necessary support material.

How it Works

An overview of the HP Jet Fusion 3D printing process

HP Jet Fusion printers repeatedly lay thin layers of powder on the build plate. After a layer of powder is put down, a print head carriage sweeps over the print area jetting out two agents:

  • A fusing agent is jetted where the part needs to be
  • A detailing agent is jetted on the edge of the part.

During this same sweep, UV lamps heat the material, allowing the part to fuse not only in the X and Y axis, but also in the Z axis. This creates isotropic mechanical property parts unique to 3D printing.

Large, dense parts create high thermal energy zones, more material consumption and often create surface defects in the part.

To resolve these issues, add a shell or hollow feature (2-3mm) to these parts.
