Introducing ProtoCAM’s newest printer, the HP Multi Jet Fusion! ProtoCAM is the first company to receive the HP Multi Jet Fusion Production Center on the East Coast, and accordingly is a member of HP’s Founder’s Program for this new printing technology. Several parts printed from the Jet Fusion were showcased at ProtoCAM’s booth at the 2017 RAPID + TCT show.
HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology produces quality, functional parts at a production speed that is up to 10 times faster than competing products. Unlike the slower point processes of some current technologies, HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology processes parts in two fast area-wide passes to achieve top speed part production.
The MJF process begins by applying a layer of material in a work area. In the opposite direction, in one continuous pass, fusing and detailing agents are printed across the full working area. This pass combines the printing with diffusing energy and the process is then completed. HP’s proprietary architecture is capable of printing 30 million drops/second along every single inch of bed width, enabling extreme precision and dimensional accuracy.
To produce truly functional parts, it’s important to ensure that the material has been properly fused and that part edges are smooth and well-defined. To achieve part quality at speed, HP invented a multi-agent print process. In the time it takes slower point processes, like material extrusion and laser sintering, to build 1,000 parts – HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology would have created several thousands of parts. Using HP’s proprietary multi-agent printing, the HP Multi Jet Fusion technology achieves new levels of part quality at breakthrough speeds.
MJF technology produces:
Fine detail and high dimensional accuracy
Get precise small features and detail such as small fine holes, walls and shafts with dimensional accuracy thanks to HP’s unique Multi-Agent printing process
Strong quality parts
Robust thermoplastic that optimizes part quality with cost, producing strong structures
Complex parts and lattice structures
Ideal for complex assemblies, housings, enclosures and connectors
