Aerodynamic wing printed with HP JF 5200

HP Multi Jet Fusion

HP's most advanced industrial
3D printing solution, specializing in high-performance plastics

Tempus 3D uses HP's Multi Jet Fusion 5200. This is a powerful 3D printing technology that enables us to produce highly accurate and durable parts quickly and accurately, up to 10 times faster than other 3D print technologies.

Multi-Jet Fusion starts with a thin layer of powder that is deposited across the build platform. Then droplets of fusing and detailing agents are applied with thermal energy on top of the powdered material to define the part's geometry. Our choice of technology makes us a perfect option for end-use, low-to-mid volume production or for rapid prototyping. Let us help you to meet your production goals - quickly and accurately.

Advantages of Multi Jet Fusion

Manufacturing predictability

High quality printing with fine detail, sharp edges and textures. A well-designed part has tolerances down to  +/- 0.03%, with a lower limit of 0.3 mm.

Dimensional accuracy and repeatability that rivals industrial tooling, while producing your parts faster with less waste.

First and only 3D printer with process control - able to perfectly repeat production and seamlessly share with other MJF 5200 machines for reliable consistency.

Breakthrough economics

Designed for manufacturing with best-in-class economics and productivity.

Optimal yield at industrial level (operational equipment efficiency).

Uniquely predictable and consistent print time for any type of part.

Print-in-Place capability allows complex assemblies to be built in one piece, saving the cost and time involved in post-processing and final assembly. 

Strong, low-cost, quality parts

Best-in-class isotropy with the latest generation of HP Multi Jet Fusion systems.

Produces strong, functional, detailed parts that are watertight and have excellent chemical resistance to oils, greases, aliphatic hydrocarbons and alkalies.

Powder Bed Fusion technology allows complex assemblies or interlocked parts to be built in one piece, saving the cost and time involved in post-processing and final assembly. 

Scalability and sustainability

From just one part to thousands - we can scale with you.

Sustainable manufacturing process, with lower carbon footprint parts (compared to injection molded parts for runs of 1500 or less)

 

Industry-leading re-usability of 3D printing materials.

The Printing Process

The HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology (MJF) is a powder-based 3D printing process. The following process repeats itself continuously during printing:

 

  • ​The machine applies a layer of powder (80um), whereby the installation space is heated below the melting point. The heating process is regulated by an internal thermal imaging camera.

  • The proven HP print head technology prints high-precision special printing fluids (agents). The core of the component is defined by a dark liquid (fusing agent). The cross section of the component is also surrounded by a transparent liquid.

  • In the last step, a melting point moves over the installation space. The black colored cross-section (fusing agent) absorbs the heat, whereby the melting point is exceeded locally. The second, transparent liquid (detailing agent) cools the edge of the geometry and defines the component edge.

  • The machine applies the next layer of powder, and repeats the process.

Manufacturing Reliability
  • Highest precision: HP print head technology guarantees the highest print resolution.

  • High speed: surfaces are merged holistically and not scanned at certain points, as is the case with other 3D printing technologies (e.g. selective laser sintering (SLS) or filament deposit moding (FDM)).

  • Solid structure: The melting lamps weld the structure up to 10 layers deep. This creates an isotropic structure with the same mechanical properties in the XYZ direction.

  • High economic efficiency: The powder is less thermally stressed with the HP MJF process than with other processes. This means that certain materials can be reused up to 100% after printing.
