About Multi-Jet Fusion

The HP Multi-Jet Fusion printer is a state-of-the-art additive manufacturing device that combines powdered thermoplastic material, liquid agent, and infrared energy to produce highly accurate components. Once the process is complete, our AM technicians carefully remove any excess powder, preparing the parts for use or further refinement. 

This innovative technology is particularly effective in creating functional nylon prototypes and end-use parts. Its most significant advantage, however, is in producing brackets, connectors, hinges, housings, and thin-wall ductwork with exceptional precision. The Multi-Jet Fusion printer is also well-suited for producing intricate details in large quantities.
