Why use Multi Jet Fusion?
Here at Tempus 3D we use HP's Multi Jet Fusion 5200 3D printer because of it's industry-leading capabilities that make it one of the most popular choices for rapid prototyping and low-to-mid volume additive manufacturing. This equipment is designed specifically for the production environment to mass-produce engineering-grade plastic parts with excellent mechanical properties at a low cost per part. With printing speeds up to 10x faster than comparable technologies, Multi Jet Fusion is a popular choice for the transition between prototyping and mass production of end-use parts. This technology is also an economical alternative to injection molding with more design freedom, shorter lead times and greater adaptability.
Materials and finishes for Multi Jet Fusion
HP Nylon PA12
HP Nylon PA12 is by far the most commonly used material for Multi Jet Fusion because of it's all-round excellent mechanical properties. It is ideal for functional prototypes and end-use applications, used in a wide variety of industries including automotive, aerospace, medical and consumer goods. Tempus 3D also offers several post-processing options which can enhance the look and feel of PA12.
Available surface finishes for Nylon PA12
This is how the part looks after it hs been printed and cleaned. Gives an engineering grade finish with a powdery, matte look and feel.
Black dye is the standard finish for parts unless requested otherwise. Smooth, consistent finish with no loss of dimensional accuracy.
Vapor Smoothing uses a chemical vapor that smooths the surface of the part, giving a look and feel comparable to injection molding.
Additional 3D printing technology
Tempus 3D uses Markforged technology to produce composite parts for use in more challenging environments. This unique printing process embeds continuous fibers in an industrial nylon base to produce parts with greatly enhanced strength, stiffness, heat resistance and durability. The resulting parts as strong and stiff as machined aluminum, which makes this printing process popular for extreme end-use environments.
